Seek first [your heavenly Father’s] kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. - Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
When I was younger, I played golf two or three times a week with friends in a company league. And I was fairly competitive. When I would have an especially good game, I would expect my next game to be even better. However, usually the next game would turn out...
Today I will remain focused on what God has called me to do.

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!”
