HEALTH NOTE:

This year some of us will be starting new traditions or changing traditions due to the circumstances of our lives. For many of us, change produces stress which causes us to be irritable, forgetful or tired. Stress also diminishes our immune system and makes us more susceptible to illness.

Let us remember the reason for the season: the coming of the Christ child. Limit your activities, lower your expectations of perfection, get sufficient sleep, and wash your hands! As Jesus said, “Come unto me, all who work to exhaustion, and I will give you rest.” ~ Matthew 11:28

Sending Prayers for rest and wellness in the midst of your Christmas traditions and celebrations.
