PBWeekend : A Quiet Celebration

Last Saturday, my sister and a friend told me that they will be celebrating their Fiesta, I thought the celebration would be same as before, which every house has grandest foods in the table but I was surprised that it turn out to be a quiet Fiesta. It is not that I felt dismay or something, I just felt so anew that the people there are not celebrating anymore, good thing that the church still held mass to thank our Almighty for giving the village a bountiful blessings. On the other hand, showing our sincerest thanks is not only through the foods that we prepare in the table but our heartfelt prayers that even how strong the trials we are encounter each day, we are still holding on and that is because of HIM.
My sister cooked foods only for us though at dinner, and she also made a fruit salad, the all time favorite for everyone. Since the neighborhood was so quiet, I just instead took some pictures of my little Faith and her new found friend in the village.

    Same here… when I was young fiesta was a bit grand and people would prepare for it, but now it seemed to be a very ordinary day.

    Fiestas are something I look forward too when I was a kid.. but I guess because of the times a lot has mellowed down. But you're right, a thanksgiving mass is the perfect way to give praise to our LORD for all the blessing we have received.
