    How are you going to show your love to a neighbor this holiday season? I'm giving gifts or maybe I'll bake something if I'm short on money.

      We used to know this wonderful lady who would bake these amazing cookie trays. They were about $75 and you got a mountain of every Christmas goodie you could imagine. Then she had kids and the trays were no more, that was pure majic.

      My neighbor has a bad habit of doing these things around 7 AM on weekends (my only day to sleep in):
      -Mowing the Lawn
      -Cutting Wood
      -Playing with their noisy kids
      -Playing the piano

      I try to be as good and nice as possible... but I have a hard time finding love for those neighbors.

      just have constant conversation with them, and make the feel that you are around if something happens or they needed something

      i have done that and honestly? they don't appreciate it. they still chain-smoke on their patio and let their dogs bark like mad and have raucous parties at 2 am and are just in general bad neighbors, and me and my bunny are as quiet as mouses. mice, i mean...

        Dear Reformed,
        I'm pretty much with you on this one. Biblically speaking, "pearls before swine" syndrome. However, there are plenty of people in my life that I see far more often than my neighbors, and they have their hangups, but they appreciate the help/service/love I can offer. So I'm sticking with that. In an emergency though, I've helped out strangers, and glad I did. Case by case for me.

            It must be time to inject some more of gods love from the bible. smile

    I live smack bang in the middle of the biggest Jewish suburb in my state.  When I say biggest I mean most popular for Jews, actually quite small and close to CBD.  So yeah, I love my neighbours.  Property prices are through the roof tongue

    The love just goes on and on! smile

    "So let their children starve!  Let the sword pour out their blood!  Let their wives become widows without any children!  Let their old men die in a plague, and let their young men be killed in battle!  Let screaming be heard from their homes as warriors come suddenly upon them.  For they have dug a pit for me, and they have hidden traps along my path."   (Jeremiah 18:21-22 NLT)

    Out of context! The religionists scream! Still from your love book tho aint it?
