Your Donut? Caffeinated or Decaff?

Back in 2007, Dr. Robert Bohannon, a molecular scientist/café owner, believed people could benefit from other caffeine options other than coffee or tea. So he came up with the idea of putting caffeine into some popular sweet treats like the ever popular donut. He pitched his idea to some popular chains like Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts – but he struck out with them. Apparently they were unwilling to lay out the dough for Bohannon’s idea.

Hmm. I am sure there are many among us who like the idea of more options for caffeine intake. We live in an overworked, under-rested society. Most of us don’t get enough sleep. Therefore the need for caffeine (How many of you don’t feel awake until you have had a cup – or a pot – of coffee? I sure can relate to that!). But lately I have been sensing a growing conviction that I need to take better care of my body. After all, I only get one! So I had better take care of it. And given the truth that my body is now the temple of the Holy Spirit – I have even more motivation to care for it well. All this to ask all of us – are we being good stewards of the body that God has given us? That means getting adequate amounts of sleep, exercising on a regular basis, eating healthy, etc. Let’s determine to take some steps toward a healthier lifestyle!

Thanks for stopping by . . .

PS - This coming Sunday we will be taking a hard look at the Fourth Word of Grace ("Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy"). Understanding and putting this commandment into practice in our lives will lead to a greater rest for both body and soul. I hope you can join us on Sunday (9:30 or 10:00).
