I understand that there is
a direct relationship between
pancreatic cancer
and an elevated blood sugar count.


Reducing our sugar intake
reduces our chance of developing
pancreatic cancer.

You might think this information
would be more of a thing.

But what would that do to the economy?
Particularly the sugar industry,
and the soda industry,
and the wine industry,
and all of the industries 
sugar supports and sustains.

What would our life be if we quit sugar?
Maybe pancreatic cancer isn't so bad
after all. 

Oh, and then there is diabetes.

How much does sugar mean to you?
How addicted are you?
How addicted are your children?
Your grandchildren?
How addicted is the culture
to its sugar habit?
How addicted is the world?

What's important?
What matters most?
What do we serve with liege loyalty,
filial devotion,
unwavering allegiance,
all our life long?


If you are a subscriber and get the photo associated with each blog entry but not the text, it is because there is a hitch in the code that causes text to appear as white on a white background. Until that is corrected, the work-a-round, suggested by sandync 28704, is to click on the date of the blog above the photograph and that should link you directly to the blog.

I'm retired, and still finding my way--but now, I don't have to pretend that I know what I'm doing. I retired after 40.5 years as a minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, serving churches in Louisiana, Mississippi and North Carolina. I graduated from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in Austin, Texas, and Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. My wife, Judy, and I have three daughters and five granddaughters within about twenty minutes from where we live--and are enjoying our retirement as much as we have ever enjoyed anything.
