A magnificent tribute.
God expects us to continually improve our understanding of the physical, and scientific investigation has developed a more erudite grasp of our universe. God also encourages us to develop a more sophisticated understanding of the spiritual. We humans, unfortunately, have failed to pursue the requisite wisdom. Our intellectual progress in the spiritual has not matched our growing knowledge of the physical, and this simple fact is the crux of the conflict between science and Christianity.
So there is the challenge. Christianity needs to experience the refreshing clarity of a theological renaissance. Can we unite the essence of the wonderful, loving, spiritual message we received over 2000 years ago with 21st century knowledge?

Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, 'I love you, and I wish you enough.'
The daughter replied, 'Dad, our life together has been more than enough.... Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.'
They kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, 'Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?'
'Yes, I have,' I replied. 'Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?'.
'I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be for my funeral,' he said.
'When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?'
He began to smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone...' He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more.. 'When we said, 'I wish you enough,' we wanted the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them....'
I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.....
He then walked away.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.
To all my friends and loved ones, I WISH YOU ENOUGH
