Then Greg came up with this capsule of wisdom: when you are living too much in the past,…Continue
Today is my 16 year Gohonzon Birthday!! My Husband Jason was there when I first received my Gohonzon. We were dating a few months and I asked him to be there with me. He is the Light of My Life, My Soul Mate. We have been together from the moment we met, 16 years ago! Two months before I met Jason I was challenging many things and I chanted, crying, looking outside my window( I did not have my Gohonzon yet) to meet Someone Amazing, Someone Special. That very next night…Continue
