Simmer…One Word Prompt

via Daily Prompt: Simmer

 

Simmer
We simmer soup in a pot.
We simmer thoughts in our mind.
 
When a pot is simmering, it is not quite boiling,
Things are being bounced around a bit.
 
When our mind is simmering,
Thoughts are being bounced around a bit.
But they have not YET boiled up and spilled over.
 
Therefore we still have time to,
“Capture” the thoughts.
To take control of them,
So that they do NOT boil over
And burn others.
 
When you find yourself,
A simmering pot,
Pause,
Step away,
Calm and still your mind,
(Turn down the heat).
Then your words will,
Be a fragrant offering,
As well as food for the heart,
Of another.
Colossians 4:6 Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
