"As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received."
Apostle Paul, letter to the Church in Ephesus
If my love for God were as full as I declare it it is, or as graceful
as the words I pen in my vintage journal, or as all-encompassing
as I make it sound when my eyes sparkle and I share what He
has done for me, then perhaps I would worry less about who
has wronged me and gossip would never make it past my teeth
which feel blackened from all the complaints I let loose into
the world. Perhaps I would live more worthily, more sanctifiedly.
