What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
~ 1 Cor. 6:19-20
Safety is a cheap and effective insurance policy

There are so many places where it is easy to overdo. Vacation, credit, food, drink, talk, you name it, overdoing can be easy. We recently went on vacation and found that the advice we were given before we left proved to be the best, “Just eat two meals a day and you should be fine.”
It is precisely what we did, and we got left over “boxes” everywhere we went and used those leftovers right up until the night before we left. Great food, too much, every time. That, coupled with over 3300 miles of travel made us very conscious of just what our bodies could and could not take.
I know that I am preaching to the choir when I say any more than this. Suffice to say that we honed our skills in knowing when we were full, tired, and in need of less “outside” stimulus and just required some rest and reading and relaxing.
We were safe, careful and conscious of what was needed. I think some of that was because we were so far away from home. Now, if I can just apply these same guidelines to today, tomorrow, and the future, one meal at a time, one conversation at a time, one purchase at a time. Today, be safe, slow down, and be good to yourself as you go forward.
