I live and garden in the desert year-round. Among the things I grow are sugar snap peas. From the time I plant them, the peas will thrive for eight months and produce for more than five months. The plants climb on trellises to a height of more than eight feet....

Today's Prayer
Creator God, thank you for the transformation hidden in a seed and for the wonder of what that transformation means to us — new life with you. 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!”
