I have been spending some time to learning more about all of you. I had tears in my eyes listening to some of the talks. I also just saw Nipun's old talk at Vedika Global, and it reminded me of this poem by Ruth Webermyer:
 
I never feel I am giving to when you take from me
When you understand the joy I feel giving to you

You know my giving is not done to put in my debt
Because I want to live the love I feel for you

To receive with grace may be the greatest gift
There is nothing I can separate the two

When you give to me I give my receiving
When you take from me I feel so given to

May God bless all of you abundantly.

    This is actually by Ruth Bebermyer and it's a very sweet song. Corrected line "there is no way I can separate the two"
