As usual, I started my Sunday by going to church early in the morning. It is my way of saying thank you God for the gift of life, blessings, and good health. Going to church is not an obligation to do, however, it is right to give thanks to the person who gave us lots of blessings in life and that is God. When I wake up early this morning, I felt lazy after hearing that some member of the family is not going to church. My sister and her family will attend the 10:00 am mass. I felt guilty after telling my father that I do not want to go to church because the mass will only take an hour. It is so unfair if I will not give that precious hour to God and listen to the His words at the church.
It is good thing that I decided to go to church because the gospel for today is very touching. The ‘keep the faith’ gospel is so perfect to everybody. I said it is perfect because there are lots of trials, difficulties and hardships that people are facing now. Things that will weaken us especially those whose determination and willingness is not that strong. Some do give up and some continue moving. Life is so beautiful whether it is good or bad. It is the matter of handling it the right way. We do felt like giving up but if we keep the faith in God and ask for guidance all will be fine. We may not receive the answer we wanted right away, but knowing that we keep holding on and believing in God all will be fine. Just keep the faith.
