In Wayne Muller’s “A Life of Being, Having, and Doing Enough”, he points out that “…we feel incapable of remembering this most essential, human offerings: to do what we can and have mercy?…forgotten what enough of anything feel like – enough work, enough success, enough love, enough security, enough wealth, enough care for our children, enough generosity, enough closing, shelter, enough daily bread?”
As someone’s husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend and priest, I quite often wonder if I have enough love for the people. At the same time, I have forget these four: 1) do my love for God is enough? 2) God’s grace is enough for me; 3) do I know what I can do? and 4) have mercy on myself.
That is why I felt overwhelmed, stressed and tired.
