Love > Fear

Love > Fear

I like this sign. It about sums up what's going on right now for me and my family. You should look to those you love when the road gets a little bumpy. You must believe you will get through whatever life throws at you and the ones you love will always be there for you.

I watched a movie that has been our for a while, "Akeela and the Bee." If you have not seen it, it's an inspiring story of overcoming fear through the love and support of family and friends. I leave you today with a quote that is central to the theme of the film.

Our Greatest Fear

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 and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
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
