Five Minute Friday: Enough.

It's Friday. It's another five minutes of free writing with Lisa-Jo Baker.



Enough.

Enough is either me having more than I want or not as much as I want. 

The laundry is piled miles high, mud is tracked over my clean floor, the dog is puking, the phone is ringing, the boys are fighting, the supper is burning.  I am out of Diet Coke and my body is tired.  I feel my blood pressure rise beginning with the warmth from my toes up and like a pressure cooker I blow- "I've had enough" they've heard it before and they are not impressed. 

Enough- more than I want.

I'm snuggling that precious child, planting kisses all over their face, neck and of course, the piggies. I hold my man in the midst of life's hard. I drink in the smell and the comfort of gift from God and I think, and tell them, I can't get enough of you.

Enough- not as much as I want.

I don't know what my Enough really is- probably won't recognize if it hit me in the face because life is full of more than's and not as much as and I'm not a good judge of it because I'm full of sin and selfishness. 

So I'm glad that God knew exactly what was Enough- and one day, His Enough will be Enough for all of us.

Happy Friday y'all!

  3. we have such fickle hearts, don't we?

    i love how you addressed both sides of enough - too much or not sufficient - when actually it is the balance between the two and where we find our God.

    thanks for sharing!
