SUNDAY SPICE UP: PATRICK VIEW ON SHARING & CARING

 

https://patrickrealstories.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/download-1.jpg?w=672

Hi peeps, today post is all about sharing and caring. Here is a little write up about my encounter i had in a service i was invited to.

I attended a “church band love feast” get together in one of the church in my area and there was so much to eat and drink, just like a normal feast with games to play but when this session of exchange of gifts came, I was amazed at a presentation that captured my imagination.

First I felt about the idea, base on the sharing and caring for neighbours, family and friends in the church.You don’t have to have the world to show kindness to anyone, all you would ever need is your heart.

Yes! Your heart, you can start by thinking about the need of that person sitting or standing next to you.Alright! Sharon is about four years old and she came out to present his gift to a little girl(Joan) about his age.

His father is a member in the band in the church While the parents of Joan are active members of the band as well.Sharon  must have seen his father rap a gift to present to the name he had picked some weeks ago and insisted to be given something to give too.

It was funny, everyone laughed but left with a strong massage. What can I give even when I have nothing for myself? I asked myself.

Again sharing amd caring is not all about money giving but is all about giving time and good word to people around.

But I ponder on this things the more, I keep it to myself, from my own point of view,the following are ways to share and care for people around you

  1. SHOWING LOVE

sharing and caring is all about showing love, not only for lovers, but also for anyone worth showing love to, show love to the poor and neglected in the streets and to anyone else.

  1. SAYING A PRAYER

 Spare a thought for someone; Find time to pray that we will continue to understand the importance of love in our family units and  to the overall welfare of our society and our world. Say a prayer that every soul in need finds someone to love. That is the real spirit of caring for that person, it is the thing that our world  needs.

Pray and worship

  1. SPENDING QUALITY TIME

Again, is all about spending quality time with one’s family, friends, and relatives.

 

 

 

  1. GIVING ARMS AND GIFTS

By sharing with someone through gift, love card. By caring for the hospitalized person in the society, giving free medical check up for old/aged people in the society.

 

 

 

5. GOOD CONVERSATION

Here you care about that person by giving him or her good words that encourage them each time they face difficulty or been around you. Here are several things to say to someone during a conversation there by making a very positive impression:

  • “Tell me all about your day.”
  • “What do you think about [insert topic here]?”
  • “What would you like to do for dinner tonight?”
  • “How are you feeling?”
  • “What would you do this weekend if you could do anything you wanted?”

Other everyday comments that can make your to care for that person   are compliments, such as the following:

  • “You are funny.”
  • “You look beautiful today, just like every day.”
  • “You always know the right thing to say to make me smile.”
  • “I had a bad day, but as soon as I saw you, I cheered right up.”
  • “I miss you when you’re not here. You make my day complete.”
  • “You are the smartest person.
  • “You always make me laugh, in a good way.”

 

I am hoping this week will be pleasant for everyone. 

This week’s Sunday(sharing & caring) encourages you to share and show care with  someone. Like am adage which says “when you give you will receive in so many folds.”

And for you bloggers here i have a simple question for you –what is your own idea about sharing  and caring”.

 

Please let me know all your reactions, views and insights in the comment box below!

  1. These are all things I am able to do with a minimum of financial expenditure- which is good, because while I am to receive a tidy sum of money, soon, it won’t happen until late summer or early fall. Therefore, frugal I remain.

  2. That’s a wise post. And nobody does need to have the world to give- I’ve seen children play around with the dogs our school had adopted, sometimes feeding the canines from their own lunches. The dogs would later follow them everywhere and kept potential bullies off. It was heartwarming.

  4. You offer some great ideas for caring here. I find that if I take a few minutes to ask people questions about themselves they open up and hopefully feel I care about them. Thanks for checking out my blog and following! May you have a great day.

  5. This is a very insightful post, i was touched especially by that little girl, you know the bible tells us that we have a whole lot to learn out of the “mouth” of children. But the most significant thing i learnt is “praying for someone” and “giving has to deal with the heart and the needs of those even closest to you”.

    Great post!

  6. What a brilliant thought . As a matter of fact I practice twin hearts meditation which makes me bless the earth with happiness , wealth , health and spirituality and it turn comes back to me manifold . This is my way of showing share and care . Also I believe one has to be selfish first then self full and then self less . Only when you are full you can share and care . Compassion is another thing .

  9. Awwww such a lovely post! You seem to have such a strong warm heart. It takes nothing to show some warmth and care to another person but so many people struggle to do that.

    This reminds me of an old lady I help in my flat- I do shopping for her take her to the bank etc help her with bits around the house and everyone says awww that is so sweet of you. But I think it’s our duty to help a less abled and old where possible. I wrote a post about my old lady dilemma!

    There is more happiness in giving than receiving! 🙏🏾

    2. Thanks again.You said ““when you give you will receive in so many folds.”- It is a wonderful thought.But I feel ‘One should not give with the selfish motto that One is going to get back many folds’ Alas….the majority in the world belong to the selfish souls, who give because they expect something in return.
      Food for thought for me.Thanks
