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.


 





Just for Today (2019)

I wrote this prayer of thanksgiving in 2011 and can just as easily pray it today…

I pray your Thanksgiving is one of love and grace.

“One hundred years from now, who is to say our attitudes in the present day won’t be taken to task?”

You See

 

You see,

saying, “I see clearly.”

 

You see,

passing judgement in time.

 

You see,

so you say,  the sins of others

from long ago days-

 

You see,

and in so saying,

are blind.

Hello Dear Faithful Friends and Followers,

It’s been awhile since I have written for this blog consistently. I remember the days of writing every single morning and sharing…it seems like a memory now. Part of this is my schedule is a little less roomy. Another part is I think I am like Peter looking at the water, instead of the Lord, and I don’t always see clearly. I see all the obstacles- the site that needs updating, the time to write, edit, revise a post, the sharing to Social Media, the critical voices within my own head  and without, all the steps and none of the joy I used to have when I was so excited to simply share what God had shown me as I went about my days and weeks.

All that to say…here I am.

A simple share on a blog that is woefully in need of updating from a girl in the smallest state sharing as she goes, this morning’s meanderings, slightly edited, moderately revised, but absolutely imperfect, because – after all…that ‘s how I roll most days.

Without further ado, from my journal and heart this morning…may it be a blessing to you.

Gathering poems, and sharing one of my very favorites. Written about  five years ago, straight outta journaling.  Morning journaling times are the best, yes? OK, may this one bless your socks off…NO, make it your feet. May these words bless your feet off!  This one has a definite beat! Enjoy!
