It’s about this time of year that I want to start planting flowers in my yard. This year I’m thinking about trying to grow some tomatoes and strawberries too.
This weeks question is:
What do you WANT to grow?
** I do not have the green thumb like my father but I’d like to grow some orchids or probably some red roses. Good luck!
Today’s the start of my 5-day weekend for the Holy Week. By far, this would be one of the longest “vacation” I’ll have for the year. As was our yearly thing to do, we had a reservation for a hotel stay in Tagaytay but opted to cancel it the last minute in lieu of the luxury of staying home and just do nothing.
It was a pretty long day today having to go and do some last minute errands I needed to work on and for The Don as well. I was surprised to read an e-mail coming from an insurance agent with a proposal for their life insurance rates that I have inquired about a long time ago. Apparently, she still had my contact details and the e-mail address I gave her. This time, I had to decline her offer due to financial considerations.
Anyway, after working quite hard to reach my numbers this month, it’s a good break for me to be waking up later than the usual and not worrying as to whether what coffee variant I’ll be buying from 7-11 to keep me awake or even worrying as to whether traffic will be bad upon going home. For a couple of days, I can relax, sit back and just let time pass without worrying too much as to whether I was productive or not.
The Holy Week is a time to reflect on the passion and death of Christ. But just like Valentine’s Day or Christmas, we should do this not only during this week but every single day of our lives. He gave up His life for our sins and if we keep this in our minds and hearts, we will be able to live better Christian lives and be a source of inspiration for others to renew and keep their faith strong and intact.
With this, I’ll end this post with a prayer for our Church to be strong in the light of the recent scandal rocking its integrity and that she will be able to endure and surpass this test of strength and faith in time.
