Sometimes I think I am not enough; or, that I don't have enough; or, that something or someone else is not enough. Perhaps that feeling is common. I think of the story in the Bible about Jesus feeding a big crowd with a boy's lunch of five loaves and two fish. That lunch certainly didn't look like enough. I can't imagine expecting anything to eat if I were in that crowd. The story says the people were satisfied and there were leftovers. When I am in the "not enough" mode, it helps me to think about what I do have. Sometimes I go through the alphabet thinking of several things for each letter that I am grateful for--"A" apples, animals, asparagus, Alice; "B" bananas, babies, b vitamins, .... It is a risk to trust that what I have and who I am will be enough. This painting is also on the home page. I put it there when I first put out this website. It reminded me of a trust exercise to put it out there and trust God. It is still growing and changing, but I'm glad I took the risk.
