Football Wishes and Tryptophan Dreams

Printer-friendly version
A bow that is always taut soon ceases to shoot straight. So on Thanksgiving Day, may we all enjoy a little "slack" along with good food and the company of loved ones...

Those are my hopes for my own Thanksgiving, anyway. My wife and daughters and I are heading to West Virginia to visit my extended family over the Thanksgiving weekend. Weather permitting, I hope we can toss a football with the kids on my uncle's lawn, in addition to enjoying some football on TV.

I heard a sermon on Sunday that touched on clergy self-care, and I jotted down the following quote, which Google suggests may originally have been a Greek proverb: A bow that is always taut soon ceases to shoot straight. So on Thanksgiving Day, may we all enjoy a little "slack" along with good food and the company of loved ones.

Shalom y'all,

John
