    If nothing else, remember this

    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?’

    Friday Funnies – 5

    Friday, November 20th, 2009

    Jesus and Saint Peter are golfing. St. Peter steps up to the tee on a par-3 and hits one long and straight. It reaches the green.

    Jesus is up next.

It then bounces off a truck, onto the roof of a nearby shack and into the rain gutter, down the drain spout and onto a lily pad at the edge of a lake. A frog jumps up and snatches the ball in his mouth just before an eagle swoops down and grabs the frog. As the eagle flies over the green, the frog croaks and drops the ball. It’s in the hole.

    Exasperated, Saint Peter looks at Jesus and asks, “Are you gonna play golf? Or are you just gonna fuck around?”
