Yes, I know it's traditional to say, "Happy Easter". It's really lost it's meaning over the years though. It's such a wonderful day of celebration for us, as Christians! We are so thankful that we serve a Risen Saviour! We were thankful to have time with our family, church family, friends at Heritage Manor, but most importantly with the Lord! He is once again, our Reason for Living. The Reason we have Hope for the future. The Reason we have Victory! The Reason we know that our Reservation in Heaven is secure. We serve a God who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by Him. Once we are saved, we are secure. No man can pluck us out of God's hands!

I serve a risen Saviour; 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, thro' 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.
