First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who, in one way or another, helped me with this blog. Last year was a blast for this blog although I slacked again by the end of the year.
Anyway, let me finish my first post for the year. In this post, I’d like to share with you what I learned last January 1.
Since we really didn’t plan of hearing the midnight mass in the nearby church due to fireworks everywhere, I settled with the TV mass. My mom told me in the morning that only sick and disabled do that. Is that true?
The priests homily were pretty interesting. One is long but very informative and the other is short and sweet. Both left a mark in me although I appreciate the latter even more.
Fr. Jerry Orbos said that the way we go through each year is like traveling. He then gave the following tips for everyone to have a fun and stress-free travel.
- Travel light. Get rid of excess baggage. There are really stuff you don’t need out there.
- Travel with hope.
- Travel with trust.
- And lastly, travel not alone.
I definitely want to adhere to these tips. I think these can result to both material and non-material rewards and so I’m keeping them in writing, in my mind and in my heart.
