Ah, fearless Emma! You bring the words of Isaiah to life:
"Have no fear, for I am with you; do not be looking about in trouble, for I am your God; I will give you strength, yes, I will be your helper; yes, my true right hand will be your support." Isaiah 41:10
Thank you, thank you, dear Emma, for allowing yourself to be all that you are. How different the world would be, if each of us could overcome our barriers to living bravely. How many of us hold ourselves back. It reminds me of the famous quote by Marianne Williamson:
"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 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 am deeply moved by your story, inspired and challenged once again, to live my life to the fullest, to let my heart be wide, wide open and to allow God within me to be seen.
with deep appreciation for your gift,
