I will surely think about it

Last week at the wake of my late cousin while talking to the other cousins, they open up the topic about me and my other cousin misunderstanding.  It has been five years now since the misunderstanding incident occur.  We have not talked to each other since then.  I did not bother to settle the things between us because I think it is useless knowing the attitude of my cousin.  I decided to just ignore her every time we see each other on birthdays, fiestas, and other events.  It is not easy I must say because we used to be good friends before.  It is just a pity quarrel that turns out into a big issue.

Anyways, my other cousin suggested that I should make the first move instead so we can move on and we forgive and forget.  To be honest, I have thought about it many times already and even consulted my family.  But they said no to me.  The wounds in their hearts is not healed yet.  I guess it needs more time to heal and finally will forgive and forget.  Only God knows what is gonna happen in the near future.  I will surely think about doing the first move of coming to hear and patched things but first have to consider my family’s opinion because they were hurt too by her words.

Let’s forgive and forget

It has been eight months since the younger brother decided to forgive his wife and starts anew. We did agree with the brother’s decision because it is too early to just forgive and forget. What his wife did to him is too difficult for us to understand and forgive. But the love of my brother for his wife overpowering the sin she committed to their married life. Although, we are against of his decision, we respected it and understand him. He wants a complete family, so we did not interfere with his decision. But we told him that his wife is not welcome to come in our house anymore. We cannot forgive her for now, maybe after years.

However after hearing the message of the priest while attending masses, we are having our second thoughts. The younger brother contacted us and told us that he wants to bring his wife on New Year; we thought it is time to reconcile, forgive and forget. But before having our final decision, we talked it over and weighing everything. Life is too short to live in grudge, and anger in our hearts, right? She is part of the family already. Letting the brother standing in the middle of two walls is not easy. So, we decided to forgive her and forget what she did. Besides, everybody deserves second chance.

Inspiring Movies

During holy week, some television channel shows several  movies to watch that will touches our hearts.  They do play movies that will inspire us, make us realize how great the love God has given to us and movies that shows how to forgive and forget.  It is good to watch movies like this because we are able to repent, reconcile and bring back ourselves to God.

This is once in a year that is why I always watched movies like this because it makes me realized how am I as a person, a daughter, a sister, a friend and a follower of God.  I know I am not perfect; I commit mistakes and hurt others feelings but I am human sometimes carried away by my emotion.  I have watched five inspiring movies today and I have realized that we should show some love, respect, care and spent our time to our family.  Each day is a day we cannot get it back and so we have to make it a perfect day.  Never forget to say I love you to our love ones while we can because we will never know what will happen next.  Say sorry and learn to forgive and forget. Value the time we spent each day with our family, savor it and make it a memorable day everyday.

 

Holy Week

Catholics do celebrate the holy week once a year.  This is the week wherein we catholic commemorate the passion of Christ and repentance.  We do start this holy week with the blessings of palm leaves.  And we call it Palm Sunday.  I have always participating this holy week celebration for quiet sometime now.  But today I did not able to attend the mass for Palm Sunday because my body is so lazy to stand up early.  I felt guilty because it happens once a year and I did not give time to attend.   I am so burnt this week that makes me lazier.  Though I did not able to attend the Palm Sunday mass, in my mind I do my simple celebration and prayers.

I think I would not be able to participate in this year’s holy week celebration because of my father’s condition.  Though I wont be able to attend some activities, I will do my best to repent, reconcile with God and to my enemies.  This is the perfect time to repent to all catholic people.  Admitting our sins, and lets forgive and forget because it is a good feeling to reconcile and bring our self back to God.
