So, how many times have you ever stopped and said: “Enough… this is just enough for me. I do not need or want any more than this. My heart is satisfied with what I have and have enjoyed today… it is enough.”

The Zebra and wildebeest were going about their eating, playing, resting, walking, courting in peace. The humans were going about their running, preparing, helping, serving, organizing, transporting, looking, eating in peace … each in his or her own little space, right next to each other in the Garden. Once again, I acknowledged that this was a truly wonderful place to be… and only God could have created it as it is. Even with man’s perceived effort in building his niche in the garden, only God could have made it so that man and beast could live so closely in peace. Only God could have planted the idea in man’s head, and given him the heart, resources, opportunity and ability to do this.

Today I am writing and praying thankful. I have many blessings … and still desire many things… but I also recognize that what I have today… is enough. A visit to the little corner of the Garden I used to live in reminded me of God’s beautiful creation in its most natural fullness … a truly great blessing. So I say, “It is enough”.

As I say this I begin to realize that each and every day, what God gives me is enough. Even though I do not finish what I want to do… even though I do not receive what I expect to receive… even though there are so many things to do to get everything its right place in my view of life, even though there are many challenges to overcome whether real or perceived, I know that today, and each and every day, just as it is … is enough… in God’s light … on God’s path … in obedience to Him that is the creator of all things.

… and as I look at this life in that little corner of the Garden … in my current little corner of the Garden… experience it, remember it, and recognize God’s presence in it, I say to God: “thank You… it is enough, it is enough just as it is. Amen”

Author's Bio: 

My personality assessment by some analyses says that I am a Melancholic Choleric - which apparently signifies a deeply soul searching personality who likes to maintain high moral standards, likes everything in its place and must dot the t's and cross the i's... sorry...that should be cross the t's and dot the i's... everything right and in its place thank you very much.

Because I do so much soul searching I find many answers as well, and so like to share them so that others can share the fruits of my soul searching.

Yet, I do enjoy my technology and lived it to the full in the Serengeti. I thought I only liked animals and always dreamed of my childhood when I could play in the grass, listen to the birds, and just bond with nature. So having a job that was bang in the middle of nature and which still allowed me to enjoy technology to the hilt was very nice!

Now I spend my days working hard to setup a startup business whilst indulging in some horticultural farming, another way to bond with nature. Not so much time for evening writing now, but over the weekend.. for an hour or so, I engulf myself in writing stories about the Garden and the lessons I have learned, and create more and more beautiful ways in which I can share this beautiful Garden with you.

“How did all this happen?” You might ask. God. I just absolutely love God and live to do His will the best way I can. So as I walk with Him in the Garden, I continue to grow, and as I strive for personal excellence in Him I found I also enjoy writing.

I hope you enjoy this blog as I continue to grow and take you with me on my peaceful, exhilarating and sometimes downright frightening, yet wonderful growing walk in the garden.
