Try To Remember

(Author of The Twelve Gifts From the Garden) Charlene Costanzo takes you back to that moment you felt truly alive.

Try to remember the moment when you felt clearly the gift to be truly alive.” – Brother Gregory  

We’ve all had moments, now and then, when we have felt truly alive.

However you are experiencing life today, try to recall one such moment. Use it as a touchstone for gratitude and joy. Perhaps sometime during this very day,
you will have another such moment.

May it be so.

With hope, 


May it keep your heart open and filled with light.
