In The Manger As He Sleeps
We went at Clark today for a little shopping since most stores are on a holiday sale. We dropped by first at the nearest BDO ATM to extract cash. And on our first stop at Parkson's Duty Free, as we park, my heart was crushed by this young kid sleeping at the edge of the street all alone. It made me realize in one way or another that I am still very fortunate. Very lucky, that never in my life did I slept in the streets or begged for food to strangers..“No greater gift is there than love..What the world needs is love..Yes the world needs your love..”
Christmas is a time for giving and sharing. I hope that each and everyone of us would realize that Christmas is not just a season, rather, an everyday routine. That each time we wake up in the morning, we should re-live the sacrifice and love that Jesus Christ shown us, not by dying on the cross, but by simply showing care and love to the unfortunate especially the poor young ones... :)
Merry Christmas everyone!
