One of my favorite quotes of all times.  This one is for the ladies in my Bible Study small group; Erica, Elizabeth and Erin (how did I end up in a group with all “E” names except for me?? I am always the odd one…that’s okay, I’ll just SHINE). 

“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, A Return to Love

Ladies, today I give you permission today to Shine!  Be Powerful!

    Only one problem with that. PLease understand that I do not mean any disrespect at all.

    Yes, I understand that most Christians believe that they mean well when quoting her, the problem is that she is a self-confessed witch.

    Amos 3:3
    Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?
