Finding the Gift in Shift
By Corinne L. Casazza



In this ever-evolving Universe, the only constant is change. As we keep shifting, bringing our infinite selves closer and closer to our Divine Inheritance, change is the harbinger of transformation. When we learn to embrace it, the way the shore accepts the lingering kiss of the sea; our lives are filled with the grace of the Divine.
