Thy Kingdom Come!
Dear Friends in Christ,
“Drink because you are happy, but never because you are miserable.”
― G.K. Chesterton, Heretics: The Annotated
How much is too much? How often is too often? It seems that too many people "need" to have 2 glasses of wine or a few beers after a long day at the office or with the kids. Certain dinner parties can resemble more of a college fraternity party than a mature adult gathering. Kids do notice and many assimilate this behavior. Although this escape can provide a short term "fix", it does not address the deeper needs of the soul. Moderation and self control are critical habits for so many other aspects of our lives. Pray more, do physical exercise to burn off the stress, and try to "offer up" the excess drinks for those you love; this will bring peace.
