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

Once You Have

"Once you have..."
By Bob Perks

Once you have smiled at someone you
can't take it back.

Once you have held the tiny hand of a new
born child and the frail, weak hand of an elderly soul
with his one last breath, you cannot possibly justify
wasting another moment of your own life. Life is not just
a beginning and an end it is how you live it in between.

Once you have stood on the edge of
mentally spent, physically exhausted, and
financially drained you have every right to say,
"I quit!" But follow that by shouting
"Now you take over God!" Then watch what
He can do with spent, exhausted and drained.

Once you have seen a sunrise and a sunset , you
know that God has kept His promise
and has every day of your life. Have you kept yours?

Once you have said "I will" then you must follow through.
"I will" is your word, not a "maybe."

Once you have more, you must give more to those who
have less.

Once you have anything, you must give thanks.

Once you have nothing, you must give thanks, too. It's
not just in having that we should be grateful. Just
being alive is a gift, too.

Once you have stood in awe looking at the stars you
realize how incredibly special you must be. For in all
the universe there is only one "you." But realize that
the universe is looking back in awe at you, too.

All of God's creation is "Awe-some!"

Once you have heard the old man tell the story for
what seems like the "hundredth" time, be happy if he
lives to tell it to you a hundred more times. One day
you will wish he were there to tell it again.

Once you have faith, you can never give into the power
of doubt. Faith builds, doubt destroys.

Once you have love, you always will...

"I wish you enough!"
