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

In A Heart Beat

All stories copyright 2009 Bob Perks
Today's message:

"In a Heart Beat"
By Bob Perks
"If you need me, I'll be there in a heart beat."
How many times have I said that?
How many times have I heard that?
I know what it means. Or do I?
It's kind of like saying "I'll be there before
you know it."
That's quick. I mean, you're not there and then
you are.
But, in a heart beat I see so much more.
In a heart beat...there's hope. Hope for tomorrow.
Hope for another chance. As long as I am alive
I have second chances.
In a heart beat there's love. When I see my wife,
my heart beats faster. Love rushes through me and
seeing her speeds the pace. I love her with every
heart beat.
In a heart beat there is life. Two expecting parents
hear the baby's heart beat for the first time and the
reality of the miracle of birth and the sound of
a tiny beating heart magnifies the truth.
In God's plan two beating hearts make one.
In a heart beat there are dreams. My heart beats and
my dreams grow. As what I physically consume nourishes
my body, my beating heart feeds my mind. The place
where dreams are born.
In a heart beat a race is won.
In a heart beat a mountain is climbed.
In a heart beat a journey begins again.
In my beating heart my prayer for you is hope, love,
life, birth, dreams, winning, climbing and a beginning
after every ending.
God is always there..."In a Heart Beat."
"I believe in you!"
I encourage you to share my stories but
I do ask that you keep my name and contact

"I Wish You enough!"

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear
much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye."
