Knotty Musings

Ideas, philosophies, and evil plots to take over the world through love hatched here.

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

Love and Crayons

"Love is like a box of Crayons Always color within the lines. Don't look at them as barriers or roadblocks that limit, but guidelines to keep your love strong.

Be Creative. Use your own colors. Roses aren't always red and sunsets are never the same.

Marriage is like sharing a coloring book. Decide together what page to work on and then share. Perhaps one is better at coloring the sky and the other the grass and flowers. Never Criticize the other's work.

If you both desire to use the same crayon, choose a different shade or wait until the other is finished. Compromise and patience is the backbone of a strong marriage.

At times color your own page. A strong couple stands together but each casts their own shadow.

In coloring, this is accomplished by first agreeing on two connected pages and sitting close together.

Keep your crayons sharpened. The joy of love and marriage is in the details.

When disagreements arise, color together. No words need to be spoken. The peace and joy that comes from creating beauty will not permit the ugliness of anger to exist.

Always be thankful to the God of all colors. He created you both in love and graciously brought you together. Finally, clean up afterwards.

Marriage, like a crayon box, has a place for everything. You will discover that when one is missing the whole box seems incomplete. (Copyright 2005 Bob Perks)
