The Enemy

"The enemy

is more easily


if he be not


to enter the door

of our hearts,

but be resisted

without the gate

at his first knock." ~ Thomas p Kempis

I have met the enemy and the enemy is me.

If selfish and self-centered knock on the door of my heart

I must know they are the enemy and I must not let them in.

If anger, rage, jealousy and envy knock on the door

I must not let them in.

Grandiosity and complacency are my greatest enemies.

Today, I must open the door to my heart

and allow only kindness and love to enter in.

Today, the windows of my heart are patience and tolerance

and I must allow my heart to see God's world

as He wants it to be.

Happiness is knowing the knock of the enemy.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

ME and the Boss
