Do I think about this, now in the season of Advent leading up to Christmas? Sometimes, but not particularly. I've been occupied with wrapping gifts and writing cards, scheduling dinner dates and planning our honeymoon. None of these are bad things, really, and they do give joy to others and even myself. But in midst of this, I'm reminded that there are still more opportunities to show love, maybe to those I don't think of first: the poor, the hungry, the thirsty, the lonely, the marginalized, the powerless.
