Child of lesser gods

Graveyard trawling again. I just can’t stay away. SO much to think about and muse upon. And quiet too. Oasis. I saw illustrations of some of my favorite idols — money, books and power.

What a reality check to imagine my own tombstone fashioned in the shape of some of the things I most “worship.” Maybe food. Or a photo of my kids. Or my own opinion. Or my “rights.” Or ease.

Of course I like to believe I worship God and God alone… but functionally I do worship other lesser gods. And it never works out well.
