Usually my neighbors and I have a Christmas get together, but not this year. It doesn’t stop them from giving me gifts though. My neighbor Sue came over bearing homemade cookies, fudge, peanut brittle and a juicy pear. She even gave me the Christmas plate it was on along with a Christmas ornament. Another neighbor brought me a beautiful poinsettia. What did I do to deserve such good neighbors? I’m such a hermit, maybe God wants me to learn how to be a better neighbor. It’s working! I had a jar of apricot-orange jam ready to give her. (It was homemade but not by me.) My neighbors don’t see what they do as teaching moments for me. What we do for others may not seem like much to us, but God can share wonderful Christian values through our actions, along with showing his love.
