     So Homer Simpson.  A pretty interesting character am I right? He is not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he does still have a good heart and when it comes down to it he always shows how much he truly loves his wife and family.
     One of the funniest aspect about Homer, is his love for DONUTS! He loves them with an unconditional love, and when he sees them he loses all control. The famous phrase " mmmmmmmmm.... Donuts! " Haha cracks me up every single time.

    However, the other day I was pondering life, as missionaries often do, and I was thinking about Homer Simpson's addicion to donuts, and how he loses complete control when he is around them. He cannot think straight and does everything he can to obtain the delicious treat. At this moment I realized something. Homer is not in control at all, it is as if the donut is in control of him! A lifeless object has so much power over him! It is insane!!

     Now, I understand it is just funny cartoon meant to amuse even the most easily entertained audiences such as myself. However! Let us learn from Homer! How many of us in our lives have vices that seem to have more control over us than we do over them? That is why we have the Word of Wisdom!

Word of Wisdom :
The Word of Wisdom is a law of health revealed by the Lord On February 27, 1833,for the physical and spiritual benefit of His children. It was counseled that we should stay away from harmful and ADDICTIVE substances,  mainly coffee, tea, tobacco, alchohol, and any type of illegal drugs.  All the things can grab hold of you to where you feel as though you have no control, and that isnt good. Our Father in Heaven loves us and wants to take care of us and keep us safe. That is why the Word of Wisdom is so important and I am so grateful and so blessed to have it in my life!
