Five-Minute Friday: Enough

It's early morning, and sun drips through the window blinds, golden like honey from the hive.

I find fullness.

In early morning Bread of Life. In the sleepy snuggles of a toddler. In the soft kiss to my forehead from my husband. And in the sweet good morning greeting from a preschooler.

In a simple moment I leave the sweetness of serenity in my house, going outside of these four peaceful walls by way of Facebook via iPhone, and my heart is drenched in calamity.

Thirteen people killed by a gunman during a midnight movie premier.

There are more headlines promising to take me further into deeper the rising floods of chaos.

But I can't read anymore.

I sit in the gentle quiet of my kitchen.

Like clothes on the line

drenched in last night's rain

prayers drip from my lips

asking for full Sunlight

to emerge

to dry the tears,

say enough is enough.

Five Minute Friday


  1. Your blog is beautiful and brings peace into a cluttered world. Thank you for your words. Yes, enough is enough. Peace.

  2. So honest and beautifully said.

  3. beautiful post...serenity in the calamity can only be from the hand of God. Thank you for sharing your heart with us.

  4. It can be tempting to hide from the world and stay in the quietness of our own homes and lives. But life happens. The horror that occurred in this movie theater leaves me speechless. On this side of eternity, there is so much sin.


There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
