Bake one hour in the oven of resentment. Remove and sprinkle liberally with hubris.
Caution! Very hot
Do you often feel weighed down, overloaded and overwhelmed? Shoulders stooped by the weight of your "enormous, I'm telling you, Lord, it's huge" cross? Wondering what might be the reason for this seemingly unfair distribution of the world's troubles upon your narrow shoulders?
When you read Jesus' words, "for my yoke is easy and my burden light", does "oh no, Lord, your yoke weighs a ton" automatically pop into your mind? No matter how hard you try to push the thought out or ignore it?
Well, I hate to break it to you but you just might have "The Double Yoke Syndrome".
What? What do you mean I made that up? Me?
I would never.
Well, maybe just the name. The syndrome certainly exists, I can assure you.
No, don't ask me how I know. I'm trying to slim down and feed on lighter fare these days.
Though, I have to admit, my new steady diet of Humble Pie a la mode (and yes, I scream) is giving me a bit of heartburn.
