Daily homily thoughts, 5/5

From Eric Church’s song Monsters
I killed my first monster when I was seven years old
He melted like butter in my bathroom’s sixty-watt bulb
Kept a three-cell MagLite from Daddy’s workshop drawer
Under my pillow and I’d pull it like a sword

Anymore when a restless feelin’ keeps me up at night
Fallin’ on my knees is my new turnin’ on the light
I keep my faith intact, make sure my prayers are said
‘Cause I’ve learned that the monsters ain’t the ones beneath the bed
The wolf hunts a hungry man and the devil a lonely heart
A minefield of bad decisions lay hidin’ in the dark
Greed stalks, sickness steals, and pride lays a wicked trap
You can’t avoid ’em all, no, you gotta trust me on that
