God With Us

“Oh, I still miss spring at Immanuel!!!”
A familiar expression of Immanuel alumni. An Immanuel spring offers much to be missed. Green lawns. Lilac bushes bursting with color and scent. Flowering crabs dripping blossoms. Banquet. Lances. Senior tea.  Final concert rehearsal. Louie’s appearance at Class Day. Scurry of graduation…

The list the continues, repeats itself each spring. Though frozen for posterity in the pages of the year book, the breath of Immanuel follows each student. Not sentimental drivel or emotional mush, Immanuel lives, moves, directs life after the diplomas are bestowed.

In Him
Creator, Jehovah,
Immanuel, I Am
The Alpha, Omega,
David’s Son in the hay,

We live
Sinners yet saints,
Cleansed and redeemed,
Empty the tomb
Where Jesus Christ lay,

And move
Spirit prompted and driven
Spurred on by His grace
In service and praise,
Sanctified vessels
Still made of clay,

And have our being
Sheep of the Shepherd
Special people of God
Glorious and holy
For time and for always,
Hallelujah, Amen. (Acts 17:28)

The struggle of our grandson to stay awake and the relaxed attitude in one of the boy’s suits served to prevent..
