Teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart. - Psalm 90:12 (NRSV)

In our family we have a tradition of reading Psalm 90 on the night of December 31, as we pass into the New Year. I enjoy this opportunity to reflect on the mystery of the passing of time and of my passing with it, on the transience of human life....

Today's Prayer
God of all our years, thank you for giving us blessings every day and opportunities to follow you. Amen.

The Upper Room has been a great resource that has transformed my life. It has been my go-to for years. I appreciate the opportunity to share this brief testimony with donors who make this ministry possible. Thanks so much for the gift of The Upper Room that so many of us veterans enjoy.”
