"I am enough"

This poem made it way to me as I opened myself to the message of this mandala. I have a feeling there will be more to come:

"I am unique
I stand tall
I flower
Alone on a hill
Balanced in eternity
Rooted through and through
I am enough"

There is an elaborate root system far beneath, and beyond my flesh and bones. It holds me up when I feel like I'm stranded on a hill, or a mountain...of life's challenges and requirements. Then, this Root System acts on my behalf...oftentimes even before I have asked. Yes, that's Grace, for which I am very thankful. I then realize that as I stand on that mountain wondering what to do, and where to start...this Root System reminds me that I am not alone, and that It's always here doing what it does naturally: feeding, nurturing, supporting, assuring and showing me the way. Now I see...I don't just have this root system, it has me! And, I discovered something else....I'm not alone on a hill or mountain...I am bathing in an Oasis of Spirit!

"Yes...
I am enough
I am more than enough
...And I flower"

Cheryl, I love what you have written here. Our roots grow deep and intertwine with other's roots, strengtening each other. No, we are not alone. We are all brothers and sisters.
Glad you started this blog!
