It may not be apparent in my posts but honestly, I’ve been going through my most trying times that only my family and a couple of friends know. Despite life’s extra-challenges, I thank the Lord for they’ve been so supportive emotionally, financially and most importantly- spiritually.
Admittedly, I’m not that religious but I maintain a constant communication with my Creator. And it’s only during Sunday Masses that my family and I attend where I find peace of mind and solace.
Last Sunday, even Tina, Gabby and I were a bit late at Greenbelt Chapel for the 12 noon Mass and found the church expectedly packed, I still appreciated the fact that we still managed to listen until the last words. There was a guest speaker who happened to be a seminarian; spoke of a parable that you may have been familiar with :
“When the pig and the chicken thought of a surprise birthday gift to their master who owns the farm, the chicken suggested for them to prepare a breakfast in bed. The pig asked the chicken of what to cook, the latter proposed the former, ham and eggs.
The pig felt it was unfair for him because the chicken will just lay and donate her eggs while for him it means a self-sacrifice.”
Then the seminarian asked the faithfuls if they consider themselves as chickens who know how to give and donate or are they pigs who are willing to offer themselves entirely.
I say it’s a tough one to be a ‘pig’.
At this point, I’d like to solicit prayers from you, my kind readers that I may endure life’s challenges and for me to be able to bounce back. Thank you!
I’m so grateful for my family and friends.
I’m thankful for blogging that became my outlet and an extension of my social life even virtually.
I appreciate you, my blogger friends that through your visits and comments you keep me company.
On a lighter note, I may not be a ‘pig’ now who can do unthinkable offerings but I have a few piglets in my barn in farmville, now I’m laughing out loud!
Gabby has his own too; but he’s more preoccupied with Plants vs Zombies while on a summer break from school.
Tina is also busy tending her hacienda…
Seriously, my family and friends keep me sane by reminding me that life is indeed beautiful. It isn’t perfect and sometimes unfair, but it’s still damn good.
I pray for strength, health, happiness.
