It’s a little windy outside but just perfect for the second night of Simbang Gabi. The Gospel speaks of the genealogy of Jesus. There is really no perfect family. The flaws are there, glaring at you at times but you learn to accept them in your life. We often make mistakes but our families are there to support us. We often encounter failures but our families are there to lift us up. Most of the time we are unlovable but still our families love us.
Family and genetics play a big role on how are lives are shaped. When we speak of families, it’s not just the family we were born to but also those friends who consider us as their own. They say that blood is thicker than water but it is not always the case. There are times when our closest friends act as our families too. The beauty of a positive family relationship lies in the way we were taught by our elders, how respect is inculcated in each one of us. The way we think, act, and feel are greatly influenced by our family.
Nabuhay ang Diyos para maging anak tayo ng Diyos. This is one emphasis I learned from the mass tonight. God was born for us so we could be children of God. It may be hard to understand. As baptized Christians, we are now a part of the genealogy of Christ.
I’ve checked my dashboard lately and I only have 28% left of my allowed space. Sigh 😦 Maybe I shouldn’t be posting more pictures so I can utilize it well. Most of my latest photos posted here are downsized from their original higher resolutions. This is my 1,890th post by the way and I am glad I’ve reached a total of 443,307 as I write this. It is hard to build a number of visits when you are not blogging every day. and it is also quite hard to think of varied subjects to write about. I value every comment and like you post on my blog. I also consider them as blessings to my blogging journey. I am also glad to have found more online friends lately. You may visit my new blog if you have time and consider following it too. It’s called Dreams Never End. It is a little different from this one because almost every post is accompanied by a photo.
