Take and give

We all take and give everyday, from and to other people.
.
I sure take a lot from other people; their advice, their company, their help, their thoughts, their love. But am I giving enough? Surely not.
.
"'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:30-31)
.
Do I love God enough? Do I love my neighbours enough? Surely not. I've got a lot to learn.

2008

First update for 2008. Happy New Year, and may your life be filled with joy, peace and blessings.
.
This Christmas, I had the most wonderful time. How wonderful was it? A wonderful Christmas doesn't need to be one full of noise, gifts, food or drink. It's wonderful because it was spent remembering the birth of Christ with the one closest to you. It was wonderful because the time shared is precious.
.
Just before Christmas we played a game in our fellowship - Secret angels. We put each of our names onto a piece of paper, fold it, put into a bag, mixed, and each of us drew one paper. And there we became the secret angel of the person whose name's on the paper that we drew, from then till 31st Dec.
.
I still don't know who my secret angel is...but I think he/she must have prayed hard for me over the holiday, for I had this most wonderful Christmas :D
