It’s Sunday And I Am Lazy

We supposed to go to church at 12:00 n.n., but I was just so lazy to wake up early in the morning. Good thing that there was a left over from the food last night, so I finally made up my mind to move around the house, I just sauté and heat the food. The kids woke up so late too, they got up at 10:00 a.m., but they have to take a bath yet so that would be another hour plus Faith is so slow taking her foods in to her mouth.

Finally she is done now, I just finish some few tasks here and I am ready to wash the dishes from this morning. It is past 12:00 n.n., and I am not doing house chores yet, I have to get up my butt out of my computer and that means now!

PBWeekend # 6: Be Prepared


Be Prepared:

Can you tell yourself you are prepared and is ready now for the world to end, what if tomorrow comes and you are already surrounded by flood and there is nothing to cling on for yourself to be saved.

That was the homily of the priest yesterday, right after I attended the meeting at school, we headed to the church nears at my niece school, we did not went to mall since I am so tired and I slept again last night.

Moving on, it is in the book of Mark: Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words shall not pass.

So when he said he would be back in the time that we won’t know, is your faith ready to receive his righteousness? I cannot say I am because I am concerned of my kid’s safety, how could I save them while you cannot even save yourself? I know if we have a faith we will never go wrong, we will all be saved. I hope I know when would be the end of time so I can be more prepare, but God only knows when is the time and when that time comes, I wish I could say “Yes I am ready”

PB Weekend : The Usual Weekend


We had a great weekend, I must say, my friend invited me to go to their house to videoke on Saturday but we ended up just chitchatting about things and stuff, I brought Mj with me and so she had fun playing with her two nieces. On our way home since sister’s house is just also inside that village, we dropped by and see my other niece, my sister is in our house, looking after Faith. My eldest daughter had sometime talking to her favorite cousin Dodong and her Ate Moreen, since they are alone at home, and it was almost dinner that we went there, I gave them money for their dinner, Moreen is 14 years old and sure she can handle things already inside the house, just like what I was before, my sisters since we don’t have parents gave me the task to man the house and do the cleaning and laundry.
Came Sunday, I prepared the kids for church and they were so happy, my youngest daughter even kissed me on our way to the church. Faith can’t be still during mass, she wanted to roam the area or swing herself in the railings, the man on our side couldn’t believe that she can handle herself well in the railings although I was there to hold her other arm but she protested and doesn’t want me to hold her. After church, we went to the mall for lunch then we headed to the grocery to buy some snacks for Mj at school.

Love and Sharing

I was glad that me and the kids were able to go to church and was able to hear the mass from the very beginning. Although Faith was a bit fussy and really hyper inside the church and was always uttered Jesus in a loud voice, while the mass was on going, I was still able to listen the homily of the priest.

The homily started with a story, one experience of the priest when he hosted a mass, he saw a lady who got some bill on her wallet during the collection but the priest noticed that she puts back the bills and took some coins.

Sharing according to wikipedia is the joint use of a resource or space. In its narrow sense, it refers to joint or alternating use of an inherently finite good, such as a common pasture or a shared residence. It is also the process of dividing and distributing. Apart from obvious instances, which we can observe in human activity, we can also find many examples of this happening naturally in nature. When an organism takes in nutrition or oxygen for instance, its internal organs are designed to divide and distribute the energy has taken in, to supply parts of its body that needs it. Flowers divide and distribute their seeds. In a broader sense, it can also include the free granting of use rights to a good that is capable of being treated as a nonrival good, such as information. Still more loosely, “sharing” can actually mean giving something as an outright gift: for example, to “share” one’s food really means to give some of it as a gift.

On the other hand giving in general is an act or of to make a present, to grant or bestow a formal action, so giving of something you have may vary of sharing by heart or you just obliged to do it because you needed to, maybe because you are a politician candidate and you should set a good image and that is to give something that you have. Love to your fellowmen could also be the best example of sharing, even you are just an ordinary human being living in this world or community it is because you love them thus you are sharing what you have for them, a little sacrifice, that is one way of showing your love.

There is this commercial in TV, I just forgot what they had endorsed but the sacrifice of the wife to show her love to her family was a thing that anyone could easily remember, the wife in the commercial brought some things for her family and when the husband asks her what does she got for herself, she said nothing, but she is happy that she was able to make them happy by the things she gave to them. Love always had a profound meaning, you can never measure it, you may never understand why a person have to offer sacrifice to show that person that he or she love him or her so.

One thing I learned from the homily was Love is not a love without sacrifice and giving is not giving unless you shared it by heart.
