Day 93, April 3

Last Saturday, our church held its first ever worldwide Women's Conference that included girls from eight-years-old and up.  (In the past, only women 18 and above were invited.)  As I watched the televised version of the conference, I was moved by the gathering of girls, young women, and women of "a certain age."

One speaker reminded us that, despite the differences in our ages, our nationalities, our languages, we share more in common than we have differences.  I found myself agreeing.  We share a belief in Christ, in His goodness and power.  We share a desire to make a positive difference in the world.  We share a love of family and friends.

Joy for today:  remembering what we share, rather than what divides us.
