I Am Enough

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically
liberates others." ~ Marianne Williamson

Let The Cooking Begin!!!!

"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice." ~Meister Eckhart

I began the Thanksgiving cooking last night with the dressing. Today I will work on getting the green bean casserole and the scalloped corn put together (not baked), the poppyseed cake made, and the turkey broth and giblet gravy put together. That will relieve alot of the work tomorrow.

Please take a moment to say a prayer for our men and women in uniform who are serving far from home. Should you see a veteran, please thank them for their service which allows us to sit down to our meal or peace (or joyful chaos in some cases). And above all, take a moment to be thankful. But for the grace of God we go.
