In this world of surplus, In this world of “stuff”
When exactly is, enough, ENOUGH???
What was once thought big, is now thought small.
We don’t want “some”, we want it ALL!
We have three cars, when two would do.
What we think we need is very skewed.
Every bedroom has a bathroom because heaven forbid,
Sharing a bathroom with someone may upset the kids.
We want a new car though the old one is fine.
We search for new treasures all the time.
We bury ourselves in material goods.
Most of us have much more than we should.
Our house is much bigger than our parents had.
Our pursuit of happiness has simply gone mad.
Life should not be about how MUCH we own.
Rather, its should be about the LOVE we have sown.
We work, work, work for material things,
When we could be listening to nature sing.
The people we love will see us grow old.
We will lay in our bed as our stories are told.
Do you want them to say we spent our time
Chasing the dollar while in our prime?
Or would you like to hear them say,
“I love this person who taught me to PRAY?”
We need to see that HOW we live
Are LESSONS in life we unknowingly give.
Life is shorter than we could have guessed.
Count the blessings with which you’ve been blessed.
Thank you to Mom who taught me to pray.
Thank you to God who gave me this day.
Little IS big in this world full of stuff.
It takes COURAGE to say when ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
