I’m already looking forward to next year (2010), when I am going on writing-hiatus for awhile. A person can’t minister from the overflow if his spigot is bigger than his reservoir. We can’t say, “My cup runs over” if the input lines are reduced and there’s a hole in the mug. Gauges get low. Batteries die down. Brownouts occur.
All of which is to remind us of the old adage:
If you’re output exceeds your income, your upkeep will be your downfall.
