Daily Treasure

Temperance

Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

~ Luke 21:34

The world employs its various snares,
Of hopes and pleasures, pains and cares,
And chain’d to earth I lie:
When shall my fetter’d powers be free,
And leave these seats of vanity,
And upward learn to fly?
