This notebook was made by @jnonfiction 's mom. I attended a 12th night party last night. We each brought something that we already owned and would be a sacrifice to give, then we drew names and gave it to someone else at the party.

@zena brought this book, and drew my name. It was an experience in redemption for me because I gave away this and this, which were both sacrifices, but neither as wonderful as this book.

I feel like you could have gotten a "your mom" joke out of this but totally didn't even try.

@mackle: personally, i chose something precious to me and gave it away, and in return i got something unexpected and much better. this mirrors to a remarkable degree my relationship with Jesus (and my deepest friendships with people). it was like a seeing a picture of a deep truth about life.

but I think there are more general ideas about what's to gain from sacrificial giving. anyone else care to comment?

I'd have trouble with a party like that...b/c I don't have many prized possessions...and the one's i do...were made by people for me...and I couldn't give them away.
