In Charlie Mackesy’s book the Mole asks, “What’s your best discovery?” The Boy answers, “That I’m enough as I am.” Quite a huge, wise discovery for a boy! It’s taken me decades to know that I’m enough as I am, and I’m sure I haven’t achieved such self-knowledge completely. Many of us probably think that we need to keep improving, achieving, acquiring. There may be some truth in that. But God, Who is Truth, created us perfectly. We are made in the image of God, our Perfect God. In the core of our being, we are God’s child, heir of all God’s gifts.  Elsewhere in Mackesy’s book we read “Isn’t it odd? We can only see our outsides, but nearly everything happens on the inside.” Of course, that’s where God resides!
