what is “enough?”

neon pink crossJanuary 4, 2015

I painted this cross in a startling neon pink with a vague idea for additional embellishment. The problem was that I began to love the simple saturation of this throbbing color on the plain, wood, cross shape. Problem? Well, yes. Because immediately I questioned whether the result was “enough.” Enough to present to my readers and followers. Enough to justify today’s post. It was a struggle. But my own desire won out, and I’m glad. Simplicity is more than enough. Enough is good. Enough is restful. It’s a matter of defining what is “enough” for you. 

I suggest that sufficiency is precise.
Enough is a place you can arrive at and dwell in.

    I can’t wait to see the Cross you have created everyday. I don’t know which I am more enthralled with……..your creative mind in designing a new and compelling Cross each day or your writings regarding what inspired you and just what you were thinking and its meaning to you……..You are amazing! God has gifted you with so much talent and am grateful that you are sharing this with the world! Sherri

    Oh, this is just what I needed to read. There is simple pleasure and joy in each small moment of life if we can just be in the now and be grateful and satisfied with the “enough” that we have.
