To me, everyday is a blessed day, becaause I believe and I live according to Psalm 118: 24.
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Elite Island Resorts Personal Destination Wedding Planners Help Couples Tie the Knot with Ease
Elite Island Resorts, the award-winning Caribbean resort company, has recently noticed a significant increase in inquiries for 08/08/08 destination weddings. Maybe it's because in many cultures, the number eight has been associated with paradise and new beginnings. Buddhists follow an eightfold path to the enlightenment; in Christian symbolism, the number eight represents rebirth; and in Islam, there are eight gates to paradise. Whatever the reason, couples planning a Caribbean destination wedding will find 2008 a lucky year for another reason as well- those who book an all-inclusive premium luxury category honeymoon stay of at least seven or ten nights (depending on the resort) at Elite Island Resorts' Caribbean properties also can enjoy a complimentary, destination wedding package regularly priced at $899.
