This is the day that the Lord has made; 
let us rejoice and be glad in it. - Psalm 118:24 (NRSV)

As my wife and I anticipate the upcoming wedding of our only child, we have begun to reminisce about “the good old days” when our daughter was a toddler, and about the fun we had as we took her to the seashore, the park, or the woods to go camping....

Today's Prayer
Dear God, thank you for each day you give us and for your overflowing blessings. Amen.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
