Happy Easter!

Easter has always been a very special holiday especially when I was growing up. Today, GLA will be celebrating Easter with a special church service remembering how Jesus came to earth to live and die for us.  He died for you and me not just some "idea" of future generations, but for you and me!

This is a song we sang often at the church I grew up in and my mother still goes there today.  I think they are probably singing that same song this morning! The message never changes...

He Lives written by Alfred Ackley

I serve a risen Savior
He’s in the world today.
I know that He is living,
Whatever men may say.
I see His hand of mercy;
I hear His voice of cheer;
And just the time I need Him
He’s always near.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.

In all the world around me
I see His loving care,
And though my heart grows weary,
I never will despair;
I know that He is leading,
Through all the stormy blast;
The day of His appearing
Will come at last.

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian,
Lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs
To Jesus Christ the King!
The Hope of all who seek Him,
The Help of all who find,
None other is so loving,
So good and kind.
