As we enjoy the holidays, we strive for all kinds of health:
Financial health – living generously without going beyond our budget
Spiritual – not only “keeping the Christ in Christmas” but letting his presence change us throughout the year (“letting Christ out of Christmas”)
Emotional health – recognizing that for many, this is a difficult season. Even for those not actively grieving, expectations are high.
Physical heath – exercising even when it’s cold, eating just enough and eating healthy
Intellectual, Interpersonal, Vocational health – learning, relating well to others, believing that our job has a mission that matters
And so – I offer you one simple step toward health. If you’re going to a potluck, bring fresh, healthy, and festive apples. Or if you just want something special, here you go.
They only take a few seconds to make, so you have a few extra minutes for other health ventures. They don’t cost a lot but are a fun conversation piece – especially when they find the Star of Christmas in the center of their apple chip!
Merry and healthy Christmas to you!
