Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder

I saw a sign today at a local pub over by Kansas City hospital that says, "Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder." Clever, I thought. And true. Men have been known to find women attractive while in a drunken state that they otherwise would not have, and vice versa. It seems to me that this is a warning against drunkenness, in which people make poor decisions.

Another aside--one of the shift managers at Back Yard Burger here in Liberty was involved in a car accident last night. His "friends" left him bleeding on the side of the road, and they called his girlfriend to tell her that she needed to take care of him. Unbelievable. With friends like these, who needs enemies? I tried to go and see this fellow in the hospital. He wasn't in his room, but I left a note.

Whenever we do down the wrong path, it seems that the wrong choices keep piling up, from the friends we chose to the lifestyle we engage in. But God is at work in our lives as well, pursuing us with all of his heart. And that is a comforting thought.
