Five Minute Friday: Enough

How many times I snap at Michael, "Enough!" Either he's tormenting one of the dogs, or making some brain stabbingly annoying sound, or gabbing instead of eating. The fuse runs short and I shout, "Enough!" Or I bark at the dogs, "Enough!" to stem their barking at the cat across the street or a neighbor walking their dog past the house. Lately my plead is "Enough!" to God for this waiting has gone on long, long enough...Enough.

I'm in the middle of reading Romans this month and chapter 11 was this morning's reading. The end of the chapter is this:

Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
How unsearchable his judgments,
and his paths beyond tracing out! 
“Who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has been his counselor?”
“Who has ever given to God,
that God should repay them?”
For from him and through him and for him are all things.  
To him be the glory forever! Amen. 

I don't claim to know what God has planned for us. All I know is that, really, I'm ready to get going. Enough is enough. I plead for Him to hear my prayer, to have mercy and bring our family back together. Please Lord...enough.
