It is almost midnight in my part of the world…As I scramble to beat my NaBloPoMo post for the day deadline, I can’t help but reflect on my “Perfect Sunday“(Hmmm, sounds like Angelica’s Instagram post …)
Sunday is my lazy day. I practically do nothing (except hang and fold the laundry, prepare stuff to be used the next day, check on Nicole who is nursing a high fever, you know the drill. Moms actually don’t do nothing…sigh…). No wonder I am having an immense blogger’s block.
I went to Church early, as usual, as I prayed to the Lord to make my coming year perfect. I have so many post-birthday wishes the Lord’s head must be reeling from them…
One of my wishes is that I am still in His good graces. I admit I am not perfect. I should be wishing world peace, but I am shooting imaginary laser beams to annoying persons in my mind. I should be going to Vespers daily, but I spend time with my netbook more. I should be down on my knees, praying to Him, but I choose to go shopping instead. I know I am soo tiny in this universal scheme of things to even be asking for my wishes to be granted, but I am sure He knows my deepest wishes…(and I would definitely not mind if he grants them all)
As I fervently hold on to the hope that my deepest wishes will be granted, I can’t help but reflect on what I am thankful for today…
and I am reminded of this book,Messenger: The Legacy of Mattie J.T. Stepanek and Heartsongs….I truly believe deep in my heart that Mattie is an angel. A child, who despite his disease and his mother’s disability, tried his best to spread his “Heartsong“, “the word he used to describe a person’s inner self.” His philosophy is that peace begins with an attitude which will slowly spread to the entire world. One of my favorite quotes from this child who lived his entire short life in pain, but endured with unbelievable faith and positivity is “Play after the storm has passed.”
And I definitely would be doing that! No matter how turbulent are the life storms we weather, our spirit urges us to move forward and keep going. We may have memories of that awful storm, but the sun shining after that clearly erases the worst part of it!
So, what are you thankful for today? Blessed Sunday everyone!!!
