This week has been a call to freedom, an invitation to let regrets and old restrictions die and to identify with the new things happening within me with my spiritual life. I feel as if good things are ahead of me no matter the circumstances. Where else but Genesis could this unfold?           

I can’t thank you enough for your love and care this week. It was wonderful to experience the art of Focusing. Needless to say, I couldn’t have been in a better place when learning of my grandson’s death. Feeling the blessing in being in everyone’s thoughts and prayers gave me a feeling of God’s family.

Genesis offers stillness and healing of the heart that is rare – a gem in western Massachusetts. The warmth and kindness of the sisters and all the staff makes/allows that gem to shire even more deeply and even more brightly. So much lovely generosity for which I am grateful.

Oh, great Father, never let me judge another man until I have walked in his moccasins for two weeks.
