When Pinecone Shrapnel Humbles Me
I realize that I’m
in the most danger
of the longest lasting consequences
when I find myself always faulting others
for anything that inconveniences me.
I must accept
that neither this broken world,
nor this perfect God
this privileged little human.
(Sometimes it takes something like little pinecone particles hitting my shins when I’m mowing the lawn to realize that I look for others to blame when anything makes me mad.)
