With only Christmas day around the corner, a lot of people are busy buying and wrapping presents for friends and family. But these are material things that wear off, get eaten up and are forgotten. How about celebrating in a different way this year by giving yourself or a friend a gift for the soul? Mwereti Kanjo asks around for definitions of the ideal Ã¢â‚¬Å“soulÃ¢â‚¬Â present.
Accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and saviour, remembering who He really is, thanking him for who we are because of him and living by the Word. Christmas is about the birth of Christ and there is no better gift that knowing Him.
Being reunited with an old love who I have realised I still love but I can never have again would be nice. My aunt, whom I live with in Zomba, has been sick for so long. She was sick last Christmas and it would be nice to have her well this Christmas so she can enjoy the time shared with friends and family

Spending time with family and friends would be more than enough for me. Whatever presents we exchange will not surpass their presence and the time spent together.
I would have to say love for this Christmas, we must show each other love in peace and trouble. As you know today we have people that are seriously sick from the HIV and Aids pandemic, we must not forget these people. This is the time they need us the most, letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s show them unconditional love.
Let us give this Christmas and wish the best for others. Because of our wishes, we will be leading them into a year full of success, peace and joy. Giving is better than receiving so letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s be in the fore front in giving. Most of all, letÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s continue to praise the Lord
