Barb over at Bejeweled Quilts by Barb has asked the question: What is Real? I thought I'd share my comment to her:
"What is real?
That's a pretty deep philosophical question to ponder with coffee at 8:30 in the morning...
Is the question really what's 'real' - or what really matters?
To me, what really matters are people. And we are to interact with people (a.k.a. mankind) with acts of love and kindness and generosity, giving of ourselves and our possessions as we are able to make the world a better place for people.
And sometimes we need to graciously accept these acts of love when it is our time in need.
Love one another, as Christ loved us.
That's what's real."
