A phrase unexpectedly burst into my brain while speaking to my incredibly wise pastor named Jeremy earlier today. Pastor Jeremy passed me in a room where I was visiting with my fabulous friend who at the moment was away.
Too rapidly I spoke, and that flaw in myself I am aware of, yet it doesn’t bother me for multiple reasons: 1) anyone I talk to can ask me to slow down, which I consciously will do if made aware of the problem & 2) I was considerate of Pastor Jeremy’s time (returning soon downstairs to the church-wide “family feast” event) and trying not to use up a lot of it.
Anyways, in mentioning to Pastor Jeremy the books I am immensely enjoying reading and learning from – coupled with my tendency to automatically rhyme words – in a flash I was struck with a suitable self-label:
Nerd for the Word.
