John 3:16:  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
    Easter is upon us again.  We've been blessed to be alive during this historic, transitional time in the world's history - the 2nd coming of Christ!  Some may say, "Blessed? I don't feel blessed!"  And, I have to admit, I was one of those.  Yes, this time doesn't feel blessed and it hasn't even had the worst of it yet.  
     According to information coming from our President's closest public contacts, the whole truth and nothing but the truth will be pouring out into each and every person's home whether they like it or not.  Unfortunately for those who have not allowed the 'truth' into their lives, this can be a catastrophic event because they were not prepared for it, but it has to happen.  
     The financial system of the world is falling right now. The new QFS financial system is in place and being used by many countries already, but not us.  Why?  Because this country is in turmoil.  We have gotten so self centered that all we care about is what we (individually) want and not what's best for everyone or what this country was created for in the first place.  We've forgotten about the sacrifice people made for our freedom.  Too many are going the wrong way and want their sin more than they want freedom.  That happened a long time ago too, but with someone else.... God.
     Jesus, who is God, Himself, come in the flesh, willingly was born into this life we live... a life of flesh, tragedy, hardship, sickness, slavery, evil, hatred, perversion, sadness and death. Why?  So He could suffer physically and identify exactly with each and every one of us and then willingly die a horrible, cruel, undeserved death so we could be reconciled to God, the Father.  
     Yeah, yeah, yeah... I heard all that before.  But did you ever really 'think' about what that really means?  Well this is the time to do that.  Better yet, watch the movie, The Passion of Christ.  It's the closest thing to what happened to Jesus, but still doesn't portray how brutally He was beaten because the Bible says, "
But many were amazed when they saw him.  His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human, and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man. Isaiah 52:14  
     You couldn't even recognize Him as a man! How brutal was that?  We couldn't even imagine, much less endure what He had to endure in order to give us the 'free' gift of salvation.  
     One thing I've learned in this life is that anything we get for free, we take for granted as though it wasn't worth much.  In America, if we don't pay a ridiculous amount for something, we don't look at it as much and we won't take care or treasure it. So why would God make salvation a 'free' gift?  Probably because He knew we'd toss it aside like it didn't matter... and most will do just that.  Plus, it's not something that's tangible.  We can't touch it or feel it.  It doesn't really matter.  Or is it even real?  This gift of something that we can't see, don't know for 'real' whether it's true or not, has to be taken 'by faith'... is something we don't take seriously until it may be too late.  But God wanted it that way because He wants a family of people who truly seek Him.  He wants people who'll believe in Him despite hardship, loss, hurt, rejection... all the things Jesus dealt with His entire life while here.  God lost many created angels, including the most beautiful one of all, Lucifer, to the deception of 'sin'.  He made a way for all of us to be with Him for eternity, but He dangles it in front of us as a free treat.  Do you want it or not?  
Easter - what does it mean to you?

50th Class Reunion
The Liberty High School, Class of '67, 50th Reunion was a huge success!  A big 'thank you' goes out to all who attended. The Reunion Committee members felt that all our efforts were worth it!  Everyone had a great time and the display's that were set up had a steady stream of classmates gazing at pictures and items brought in by other classmates. The room was filled with chatter and laughter as people reconnected with classmates they hadn't seen in 50 years!  I believe we will carry many warm memories with us for years to come from this milestone event.  
     Other thanks goes out to our guest speaker, Gary Lavelle for sharing his heart with us. Many will carry those words home with them. Thanks to John Bereuter for his help in setting up and tearing down.  He also contributed many pieces of memorabilia to our display table.  Thanks John.  You've got the gift of helps.
     And last, but not least, a huge thank you goes to our tour guide, John Quigley, and Liberty High School, for allowing us to see the new renovations made to our ole' Alma Mater.  It was fun. We were so impressed with the new additions and changes made to so many areas of the campus.  The cafeteria was amazing and the pool! I wanted to jump in and take a swim, lol.  
     All things do come to an end and even though it's over, the memories we took with us from this weekend will warm our hearts for a long time to come.  Stay connected to this website for future events, maybe even before 5 more years :)
