Carrying on from "My Stupid Mouth..." ... Another old song:
"It only takes one tree to make a thousand matches.
It only takes one match to burn a thousand trees."
“The tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark.”
Revisiting one of my favourite songs, and wondering how I've not written this blog before...
My stupid mouth has regularly got me in trouble:
Sometimes my mouth just goes into gear before my brain;
Sometimes I'm trying to be funny;
Sometimes it's a case of needing to process things out loud;
Sometimes it's because I'm getting defensive...
Sometimes I hear what I'm saying as it comes out and I'm already trying to backpedal and justify what I'm saying as I'm saying it. Other times I am completely clueless as to how much impact what I'm saying is having on the listener.
If you'd rather listen and come to your own conclusions about the eclectic mix of songs I worked through in Lent 2023, here's the Spotify Playlist!
