it's hard being a mama, and some people would say if a bottle of wine makes you feel better have at it. You've earned it.
Now before i go any farther, i am not saying a glass of wine a night is bad, or depression medication is bad. i for one, am a wine snob, i love it, (wine was made by God, beer by man; just saying), and i currently take two types of anti- depressant medication, (something i have dealt with most of my life). And i feel there is no shame in either. What i am trying to convey, is when we are using these things to replace or numb other feelings.
This hit home for me this summer. When the kids were crazy, as soon as daddy got home i was opening that bottle of wine. i realized that i was no longer happy enjoying just a glass of wine, but the glasses were slowing stacking up. i didn't like the feeling of the day after. That is me personally, and i felt God lay it on my heart to take a break. i also ran across these verses, which were loud and clear for me.
Proverbs 23:29-35 "Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has strife? Who has complaints? Who has needless bruises? Who has bloodshot eyes? Those who linger over wine, who go to sample bowls of mixed wine. Do not gaze at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the cup, when it goes down smoothly! in the end it bites like a snake and poisons like a viper. Your eyes will see strange sights, and your mind will imagine confusing things. You will be like one sleeping on the high seas,lying on top of the rigging. "They hit me," you will say, "but i'm not hurt! They beat me, but i don't feel it! when will i wake up so i can find another drink?"
Enjoy your occasional glass of wine, be happy that God created doctors to help us with our depression, just don't use it to numb. Christ can sooth your pain way more than pills or alcohol ever will.
