“Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.” (Jean Anouilh) - Daily Bible Reflections September 9, 2016


CHILDREN ARE GIFTS
 
They do it to win a perishable crown but we an imperishable one. – 1 Corinthians 9:25
 
    In the stillness of the night, we were gliding quietly through the darkness along the Abatan River in Bohol. It was surreal. Our family of five was kayaking with only the moon and the stars lighting our path.
       And there it was — an entire mangrove tree all lit up like a Christmas tree by thousands of fireflies hovering around it. There were four other glowing trees along the river, a sight to behold that was so magical. This was the highlight of our family vacation in Bohol, which was a precious gift from our children, Peevee, Trina and her hubby, Jang.
       As parents, our hearts swell with joy at how generous our children are with their hard-earned money whenever they give us gifts. More than the monetary value, it’s the show of lavish love and appreciation that gratifies us.
       Our experience makes me wonder how much our heavenly Father is delighted by big and small acts of kindness that we do to others. It must bring Him such delight that is beyond measure! As we try to do our utmost best to please Him, we know that what awaits us is a crown that will last forever. Mari Sison-Garcia (mari_sison_garcia@yahoo.com)

Lord, teach us to delight You in all our ways.
 
St. Peter Claver, priest, pray for us.
