Moderation? Probably not!
“Saints have no moderation, nor do poets, just exuberance.”
― Anne Sexton
what is that?
I am not sure I have ever done anything with moderation
I burn brightly
and sometimes I flame out
I focus on myself too much
I focus on myself (at other times) too little
I am too serious
and not serious enough
I express myself passionately
and at times unwisely
I use sermon illustrations that wiser preachers would not use
and share myself “online” in ways that not all
I work hard
I feel deeply
and at times go way too deep for my own good
if I get my feelings hurt I retreat
(as I did yesterday)
and purge 100 people off my friends list
well that is certainly not me
blessings to all!
