He is Risen! I remember Pastor Hanson saying that Easter is much more meaningful, when we experience Good Friday. When we take Christ's journey to the Cross, than witness his suffering and death, we rejoice even more, on Easter Sunday. This year, I sang the song, "Because He Lives", by the Gaither's. In past years, I sang "I Know My Redeemer Liveth", from the Messiah. Both pieces are beautiful. But this year, I felt closer to the Gaither song. "Because He lives, I can face tomorrow...all fear is gone...because I know he holds the future...and life is worth the living, just because He lives... If you are feeling that you can't face another day, that your life is full of fear, and that your future is bleak and uncertain, know that Christ is alive, and He lives to help you through all of life's struggles. You are never alone -- He lives!!!
