THE SKELETON AT THE FEAST

I read Lisa's latest entry in her journal. I agree with her. Bless me if I know what to do about it.
I recently reread something that may address the problem. Back in 1973 Frederick Buechner
published a book called "Wishful Thinking-AThological ABC".

This is the entry for anger:

Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your
lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still
to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are
giving back-in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are
wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you. - Frederick Buechner

Sound familiar?
