The Gentlemen’s Drink

Oh I love me some Sweet Tea, so when I saw this morning woot! shirt, I just could not not be excited.( yes, Mr Henderson, that’s a double negative, which means I am very excited about this particular shirt.)

Most of you now that I start my day with a nice healthy jug of sweet tea, which I can now refer to as the gentleman’s coffee.  Yes, yes, I know this shirt is referring to hot tea, not the good old Southern sweeten and iced version! But hey, we can draw conclusions can’t we?

But as much as I like sweet tea, its not really what gets me going in the morning.  It’s not really the thirst quencher that I desire the most to get my day going, and to carry my spirit through the day.  No, my “drink”” of choice is not a drink at all.

 13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14, New International Version, ©2011)

Yep, my drink of choice is the living water that takes away my spiritual thirst, keeps me hydrated and moving forward, highly motivated to impact others.

And as my sons’ soccer coaches say

Hydrate, or die.
