Your thoughts on this please.I am asking you coz I can never ever share this with the Jdubs.They will want me not to do this as it is "worldy association".
My birthday is coming soon.This is what I normally have done (not on my birthdays since i was
still PiMi then) in the past for days/ dates that are close to my heart and special/ even people
who are dear to me but have now passed away. (Sorry for the poor english.) For me personally birthdays do not account that important (have always had this view JW or not.) So this year I am including my birthday in my special day activities list. I have arranged to bake 2 big cake and some muffins,and take it all to an orphanage and share it ;spend half the day with the kids.
In the afternoon, i will be taking the second cake and muffins to an old age home and spend the afternoon volunteering there.I know quite a few people who work in the orphanage and old age home and who appreciate this help. It gives me so much joy to see the happy faces of young and old alike and I know that thiese actions of mine are 100% selfless acts.
I do some other things too for other special dates/days depending on what/who it is for.
This is just my way of giving back to the community/society/world.
Does anyone have any other ideas that I can use?
