Magnificent Gift of Life

When you wake up in the morning, the rest of your life begins again. How will you act on the momentous occasion of a new beginning? What would enable you to live today fully alive and energized?

When we wake up in the morning, we are off to the start of a new day. We start off each morning with an expression of gratitude to the Source of our life for giving us the gift of life today. A question that will enhance your life is: “How can I utilize this magnificent gift in the best possible way for today?”
