26 Years At My Job As Of This Weekend.

At first I was going to have a photo of myself but this RAF Tornado is prettier!

I started as a Security Guard, then climbed out of the primordial ooze through schooling, determination and TaaDaa here am I! :)
My 26th Year!
Now, for a song from me (See Above/Below This Line)
that I hold dear, to mark this celebration:

For it is part of what I Volunteer to help folks with.

Glory - For Now We Are Free!

Glory - For Now We Are Free!

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 doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us 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. (Our Deepest Fears by Marianne Williamson)

When I first read this quote, I thought, No, that’s not true. We don’t fear our glory. We fear we are not glorious at all. We fear that at bottom, we are going to be revealed as disappointments. Marianne is just trying to make a nice speech, like a sermon, to buoy us up for a day or two. But as I thought about it more, I realized we do fear our glory. We fear even heading this direction because, for one thing, it seems prideful. Now pride is a bad thing, to be sure, but it’s not prideful to embrace the truth that you bear the image of God. The Bible says it brings glory to God. We walk in humility because we know it is a glory bestowed. It reflects something of the Lord’s glory!

Fear, motivates us (or is it stress) from dawn to dusk.
There is no fear but fear itself, so once I heard.
Stress makes us crawl out of bed, catch the bus, climb those stairs.
Complete those tasks, be careful, watch over your shoulder.
Fearful you are of losing ones environment, family member, friends, Love.
Both extremes, or are they just one in the same?
Who knows, as it still motivates us from dusk to dawn, Fear.

For All You Moms

Suo Gân
Sleep my baby, at my breast,
'Tis a mother's arms round you.
Make yourself a snug, warm nest.
Feel my love forever new.
Harm will not meet you in sleep,
Hurt will always pass you by.
Child beloved, always you'll keep,
In sleep gentle, mother's breast nigh.

Sleep in peace tonight, sleep,
O sleep gently, what a sight.
A smile I see in slumber deep,
What visions make your face bright?
Are the angels above smiling,
At you in your peaceful rest?
Are you beaming back while in
Peaceful slumber on mother's breast?

Do not fear the sound, it's a breeze
Brushing leaves against the door.
Do not dread the murmuring seas,
Lonely waves washing the shore.
Sleep child mine, there's nothing here,
While in slumber at my breast,
Angels smiling, have no fear,
Holy angels guard your rest.

For all you Moms - from Sir Richard...
