I was reading this article over at the Mayo-Clinic website about how much water we should drink daily. It sounds like most of us miss the mark. We mistake thirst for hunger and eat more, only barely satisfying the true bodily craving.
As Christians, we focus so much on the importance of water, the symbol of our own baptisms. We splash our hands in baptismal fonts and make the sign of the cross on our foreheads, another bodily reminder of God's great love for us.
How about we spend some of this New Year's Resolution gusto on finding another way to remember our baptisms: drink some of that delicious tap water. Take a sip. Make the sign of the cross. Take a gulp. Smile.
