Happy 66th years

A week ago, the family celebrated the 66th birthday of my father. It was a double celebration with the nephew’s christening. The sister intended to have double celebration since the birthday of father falls on Sunday. On his special day, we went to the church to attend a mass. Also, the father offered a thanks giving mass for his 66th birthday. The celebration was a memorable for the father because his friends were there celebrating with him. Because he is not allowed to drink anymore, he just entertains his friends and offers those drinks.

The father is not perfect, but he is special to us. He is our strength because our mother passed away 23 years ago. I thank God for the 66 years of life He has given to my father. On my father’s 66th years, I wish him good health because he is always sick these past days. I wish him long life, so that he can enjoy the days playing with his grandchildren and more bonding with us. Lastly, I wish him all the best in life. Also, I pray that the father will be more patient. Though it is understandable of him being sick because of his age, I still pray that he won’t get very sick. Happy Birthday father and God bless you always!

The high school reunion

I love to attend a high school reunion because I get to see my high school friends and school mates. It is good to see them once again now that we are a bit older. I like to know their whereabouts and get to know our life after the graduation. Anyways, four years ago I attended our high school reunion for the first time. Aside from I wanted to see my batch mates and friends, I also like the venue of the event. It was an overnight celebration at the pool. I love to swim, so I went with one of my closest friends. The program and the games lasted for two hours. And we can go to swim. It was 12 midnight and we are not allowed to go swimming because the employee is cleaning the pool using hayward robotic pool cleaner. Because we are not allowed to swim, I just watched the guy cleaning the pool. The cleaner did clean the pool very well. After two hours, we are allowed to swim and enjoy the water in the pool.

Welcome to the Christian World

Last Sunday, April 07, 2011, we celebrated the Christening of the family’s baby Andrei. The celebration was simple but memorable because most of the invited guests came and celebrate with us. The sister is so thankful for the time they gave to celebrate with us. The foods that we ready did make the guests happy and full. Thanks to my older brother for preparing the foods.

Above is the photo I took when the parish priest performing one of the important rituals of the baptism. Unfortunately some of the godparents did not able to come for important reasons. Made the sister a bit sad but she did understand the situation. Even so, she is still glad because four of the godparents came and the invited guests. The celebration was a success and memorable for the family. Thanks for those who came and most especially, thanks God for the blessings You have showered upon us.

Where great deals are

If I were to buy appliances and furniture at home, I always look in a store that offers great deals. It is best to buy when the store is offering discounts to every purchase. Last two months, I bought my computer table at a low price. When I saw that the store is offering 20% discounts, then I decided to buy it. So, if you were thinking of buying appliances, furniture, mattress and other things at home, visit www.goedekers.com because they offers great deals to their customers/clients. You will for sure get the appliances that you want with the discount because this is the place where great deals are.

The way of the cross

The catholic believers are commemorating the passion of the Christ this Holy Week.  It started with the Palm Sunday and ends on the Easter Sunday.  There are lots of activities in the church like recollection, confession, seminars and many others.  One activity that I do not want to miss is the way of the cross that happens on Good Friday.  It is my way of penance of the sins I have committed.  In our village, the way of the cross started at 4 o’clock in the morning and finished at 9 o’clock in the morning.  It is a long walk I must say because it is worth it.

Few days ago I attended again the way of the cross. I woke up early in the morning and went to the venue with my brothers and father, minus the sister.  I captured some photos while in the middle of the procession to share it here.  I am glad that the distance of the procession is not far compared to the previous years.  It was not a long walk because it lasted for four hours, before the procession lasted for six hours.

To the catholic believers, how do you commemorate the Holy Week?  Did you ever attended the way of the cross?
