Indeed, He does live!  Have a blessed Easter filled with lots of joy!


He Lives!

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 tho’ 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.

Maundy Thursday: In the Upper Room by Helen Welshimer

So eloquently written.

The answer to the question is “yes.”

In The Upper Room

Perhaps at first they talked of little things

At suppertime that evening in the spring.

The upper room was dim with candle-shine

As Jesus sat with twelve, remembering.

Then quietly He said, “There is one here

Whose kiss will bring betrayal by and by.”

They did not look at Judas curiously,

But each man murmured, “Master, is it I?”

Each one look inward, frightened lest he find

A shoddy place where he had dreamed of steel.

None placed the guilt on any other guest

Who had partaken of that gracious meal.

When there are hungry on my little street,

When I see tears or hear a heart’s hurt cry

Because someone has failed to keep high faith,

May I, too murmur, “Master, is it I?”
