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.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
