A Question to Ask on Black Friday Or Any Day

When is Enough Enough?

by Dawn Paoletta



When is enough, enough? 

When your life is stock full of stuff?

When your heart cries, “More!” 

and you run to the store

 seeking what lies behind the door.


When is enough, enough?

When ends meet or are stretched or defined?

Knowing ourselves means facing the truth

and seeking His face and mind.


When is enough, enough?

If less is best will we pass the test

waiting in quiet trust?


We are not defined by the days and times

but by that which we believe-

Contentment comes when we become One

 with our faith, not deceived.

Enough is enough as we give thanks,

and by the world remain unfazed.
