If Loving You Was Easy
– by Wm. C. Anderson
You will never love someone,
As much as God loves you.
It is the only thing that is real.
And this Everlasting Love is just for you.
If loving you was easy,
God would not love you at all.
When someone truly loves you,
They catch you when you fall.
In this life He Loves us all.
So as you seek shelter from the storm,
From your fear He will set you free,
His heart will keep you warm.
Close your eyes
So that you may see.
Open your heart,
That you may fully be.
Do not wait
To see the Light
Until the day you die.
The day is near to night.
The Dangers of Energy Drinks
The study, headed by Dr. Steven Lipshultz, dean of child safety at University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine, concluded there is no “therapeutic value” in energy drinks. While the popular drinks advertise benefits ranging from re-energizing athletes to increasing stamina, Lipshultz said it’s quite possible the drinks actually have the opposite effect.
According to researchers, teeth begin to suffer irreversible damage from
energy drinks after just 5 consecutive days of consumption. With an estimated 30% to 50% of United States youth calling energy drinks their beverage of choice, educating this patient population about the beverages’ long-term consequences is important.
“Patients are shocked to learn that these drinks are essentially bathing their teeth in acid,” says Poonam Jain, BDS, MS, lead author of the study.
Energy drink companies are not required to put the amount of citric acid on the products’ labels, therefore consumers will never know the damage that they are causing their teeth. – See more
Even worse, Lipshultz said the sugar, caffeine and other ingredients in the drinks aren’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration—which classifies them as dietary supplements—and may be dangerous in combination with alcohol and for kids with ADHD, heart conditions and diabetes.
Dental Medicine at Southern Illinois University, Poonan Jain, argues that energy drink consumption not only depletes tooth enamel but also leads to loss of bone mass and kidney stones. – See more
Several countries have ordered complete or partial bans of energy drinks or required warning labels on cans after several deaths that appeared to be related to energy drinks in the past few years. Denmark , Turkey and Uruguay have banned all energy drinks, Germany has banned 11 of 16 brands and Australia has banned 5 energy drink makers.
“Other countries are studying energy drinks and many are banning or heavily regulating the products,” Lipshultz said. “At some point, you have to wonder why that is happening.”
A Better Choice
What are some alternatives to energy drinks? Recently, many companies have created drinks similar to energy drinks, they provide the energy and are actually healthy to consume.
One drink that has become extremely popular is called Purple. This drink has seven antioxidants including, Acai, Black Cherry, Pomegranate, Black Currant, Purple Plum, Cranberry, and Blueberry. All of these antioxidants working together create something called the Cascade Effect. Purple also has no added chemicals or sugar. Purple is much healthier compared to the mainstream energy drinks.
Of the health drinks available, this one is known for taste. GNC stores carry Purple.
Another Alternative to Energy Drinks
POM Wonderful is another alternative to energy drinks, This is a privately owned company and manufactures their own brand of pomegranate juice, This particular brand bills its self as one of the most powerful natural antioxidants. It is sold in most major grocery and health food stores or you can find how to get it on line at http://www.pomwonderful.com

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
– 1 Corinthians 13
