Psalm 91:1-16 NIV He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 [...]

To Give Thanks Means to Receive This joyous Thanksgiving message by Mother Basilea Schlink, reminds us that for every difficulty in our lives, the way to receive help is to give thanks.

Emmaus, a small village in the Holy Land associated with the Easter story, tells of joy after deep suffering. Yes, Emmaus tells that joy - not suffering - is the end of the story, for the disciples were privileged to find Jesus again as the living Lord.
