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

The Real Gift

"The Real Gift"
By Bob Perks

Over the next few days you will...
laugh a little more,
smile at strangers,
welcome family,
employ a little courtesy to others,
be thankful for what you get,
get more out of what you give,
believe more than you might otherwise,
hope more than usual,
try harder to do the right thing,
pray, although you might not always,
find peace in a moment,
and joy in a day.

It wasn't just that on this day a baby was born.
It isn't just that in believing in Him we are
promised life eternal.

By His coming we have learned to live the way
God planned. Not just this one day. This is
the way we should live every day of our lives.

Go back now and read the first 12 lines.

That is the real message. This is "The Real Gift."

"I Wish You enough!"
© 2001 Bob Perks
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."

I encourage you to share my stories but
I do ask that you keep my name and contact
information with my work.

  1. Even though it seems we don't post back and forth as often as we used to, I think of you often. It seems like there isn't enough time in the day to be on the computer as much as I used to be.

    Merry Christmas

  2. I miss talking back and forth with you and hope we get more of a chance after the New Year
