Sometimes, I ponder that you are the God of enough.

Because who else would create humans,

and then rest?

God, you maintain that we are enough,

You maintain that you are God enough for us–

We do not need to go chasing big power,

or even trying to make everyone believe exactly the same thing.

Instead, our job simpler (or harder)

to love and serve the you.

To love and serve each other.

And to know that what we are doing is enough.

God, give us the ministry of enough today we pray.

Feed us with the manna we need!

Assure us that we can come,

all of us who are heavy burdened,

and you will give us rest.

For you are,

we are enough.

When she is not dreaming up projects and ideas, some of which creep into the church, she plays with her three boys-boys or goes and visits her husband at the library, while he works, to read.
