intro: eliel+sara+little alexander

Eliel on FB: “Well friends, I’m off to Afghanistan tomorrow in support of Operation Enduring Freedom!!  Please keep me and the 600 Marines that I am charged with keeping healthy in your prayers and of course my wife Sara who is staying home alone and is due with our first born in June as well. Have a wonderful rest of the year friends, enjoy everyday and all of the freedoms that this country provides us! God Bless America.”

Sara on FB: “You are the most amazing husband a gal could ever wish for…Everyday I admire your values in God, family and your country! What you will be doing in Afghanistan is simply awe-inspiring. I love you so much sweetheart! Have safe travels…can’t wait to Skype!”

He left yesterday.  When he comes home little Alexander will be 5 months old.  I’m in awe of Sara and brave military wives everywhere.

Arise, my Love.

Dedicated to my grandpa: Filemon C. Cabansag, MD

The Earth trembled
and the tomb began to shake,
and like lightning
from Heaven the stone was rolled away.
And as dead men
the guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of love
displayed its might.
Then suddenly a melody
filled the air
Riding wings of wind,
it was everywhere.
The words all creation
had been longing to hear
The sweet sound of victory,
so loud and clear.

Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more death’s sting
no more suffering
Arise…arise….

Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated.
The grave could not hold the king!!

Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
has a hold on you.
No more death’s sting.
No more suffering,
Arise….Arise….Arise!
