Blogs sometimes take on lives of their own. I think I know what I'm going to write about, and when I sit down to type, something entirely different comes out. Or I plan a blog in my head, and then something happens that takes me in a totally different direction.
That's how today has been. There have been several things that could have been excellent blog topics. After church we met some friends for lunch at a restaurant, and the wife tried to steer the conversation toward the BTD but the husband clearly didn't want to go there.
Tonight we trimmed our tree and ate fruitcake. That could have developed into a blog. A verse from today's Bible study about exercise also had potential. 1 Timothy 4:8 "For physical training is of some value, but Godliness has value for all things."
However, all of those ideas were set aside when my husband and I read an e-mail from a friend whose son was nearly killed in a car wreck last week. He had been drinking, he passed out, and hit a pole. It took rescue workers an hour to get him out of his car.
I don't drink alcoholic beverages - someday maybe I'll blog about why I don't. But because I don't, I had never looked up booze on the BTD food lists. Tonight I did. It is interesting to me that liquor is not beneficial for anyone. Beer is not beneficial for anyone.
Os have the fewest neutral choices among alcoholic beverages, yet statistically we Os make up the highest percentage of the population. As are the second highest percentage of the population. Liquor and beer are avoid for them as well.
About wine, LR4YT says some types, "may wish to have a glass of wine occasionally." I don't think an occasional glass of wine sent our friends son crashing into a pole.
Once again I see that following the BTD will protect you from alcoholism, protect you from hangovers, and protect your loved ones from horrible phone calls in the middle of the night.
When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. Luke 2:17-18
