Favorite Quote:
“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.”

I ached and moaned
for the pain was just too much to bear
but as I sat and wept I whispered a quiet prayer.
I prayed that God wouldn't ease the pain,
but rather increase the blessing.
for I knew that in this moment He was only teaching me a lesson.

Teaching me to trust Him,
through the best and worst of times
because sooner or later everything would fall in line.

It's when life hurt the most,
that I drew closer to Him,
because no matter what His light never grew dim.

Truth and wisdom
wrapped tightly in the blanket of life's trials,
making the tears and heartache all worth while.
The ultimate plan,
was always to make me grow stronger,
doubt and fear only prolonged my tests a little while longer.
