You may read my Good Friday thoughts here so I don’t have to rewrite them again in this blog. But I hpe that everyone is blessedly contemplating on Jesus’ death long time ago and we will be convinced that without His death we would be a subject to eternal death. So we can just imagine how much is God’s love for us —
The holiday is almost over. I mean the 3 day of supposedly no work has passed, but not for me. I spend most of my 3 days at work in my office. We are not yet done. If it is not Friday today, am sure by now, I won’t be blogging here. I would still be working. Thank God it’s Friday, I can rest from my labors but really I can’t help to look forward to sunset tomorrow so that i can go buy some stuff to be needed in the office for the work tomorrow night. Tomorrow night would be our last night to prepare everything that is needed for the inspection on Sunday after lunch.
I slept around 10 pm last night and because my phone died between 5am to 8am, the clock did not scream at me. Fortunately, one of the staff who wnated to go into the function room sent a prson to borrow my key. Thus i was able to get up at 8:30. hahahaha. I arrived in the office around 9:15 and had my phone charged. 2 important messages have arrived before my phone went dead:
1. One is that my mom did not go to Cagayan to visit his brother in the hospital but they spend the night last night in vigil because the brother died possibly before they arrived. I did not know that my uncle died. Well, it’s the best for him. Because of the alcohol, complications got hold of his body – so he died. He is now totally free from pain.
2. Another one is from son’s dad informing me that his mom died at 3 am today. She’s 87. I did not reply to this text and an hour later he called me up. I told him that we have death in our family too and if my place is just like Laguna from Apalit, Pampanga, then surely I would be there today. But no….am beyond the seas. He said, they understand. I wished then condolence. Am sure they all are blessed that nanay is now totally at rest.
Supposedly this day is to be spent in relaxation to meditate, but at the office, everyone is in a whirl to finish up the work. Now am back home, I get the time to contemplate and meditate that today is a special day for remembering God’s death that brought salvation to mankind, and the death of my relatives brought peace to themselves and to the family that’s left behind.
I wish every a blessed Good Friday and that we should not be sad as God did rise from the Dead and am positive that I will also see my relatives when the resurrection morning comes.
