On Prayer, Wine, And The Soul

I am humbled by Hannah's prayer. Moreover, I love her response to the Priest, Eli, who thought she was drunk. Hannah replied with, in my opinion, an interesting play on words that highlights a disposition of her soul that is worthy of reflection.
"I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I have poured out my soul before the Lord."
- 1Samuel 1:15b (emphasis added)
Indeed, she did not pour wine and drink in her distress and bitter weeping, but instead she poured out her soul before the Lord in prayer. I am thankful for a God who is sovereign of creation, life and my soul -Soli deo gloria.
