My brother is happy to know that finally his life insurance is fully paid on its quarterly premiums. The eight years of paying were full of ups and downs because there were hard times where the premiums cannot be paid on its due date. I even have to helped him find money so that the premiums would be paid to avoid the lapses because the insurance company is strict. It only allowed one month allowance to be able for the insured to pay his dues. It was a relief for me and my brother that his two insurance policies were finally paid up.
Stormy two weeks already!! The weather is getting bad now because the low pressure that was reported before turn out to be a storm already. It has been raining several days ago and I am thankful that the city proper and the place that I am living is not affected by the heavy rainfall. Some neighboring cities are experiencing flash floods, landslides and floody rivers that damage the livelihood of the people. I think this is the result of climate change of present times where some countries experience severe winter storms and cold weathers and some even in hot season. Right now, the skies are cloudy and rains are expected late this afternoon.
My cousin had a short vacation with us last holiday season. It was a great time to be with him once again and since it was Christmas, he was so generous to gave some gifts of cash and in kinds. I am always grateful for his family’s generosity. We had an everyday movie marathon on television at home. He has a big capacity of hard disk that can save up to hundreds of movies from the internet. He downloaded it online and we all enjoyed watching the action, suspense, drama, adventure kinds of movies. Some movies are even up to date. There is no need to go to cinemas in the mall because I have many movies to watch here at home because my brother saved some to download on the computer.
Its once again a Monday morning and I report to the office earlier than the usual schedule that I have because I will be the one who will lead the convocation prayer. This is usually done first thing before the singing of the national anthem. I pray about peace, hope and peace. These are the essence of this holiday season. This is very important way of reminding everyone about the coming Christmas celebration. A great day to start this Monday offering to the Lord all the glory.
I am a very active member of my church assigned as a choir leader. I always see to it that the group is always prepared and ready to perform in every church activity or mass. I talked to our priest the other day and he instructed me to buy some new musical instruments for the church. The instruments that we are using now are no longer performing well when played. The musical sounds are not as good as before. I need to inquire a classic peavey pa speakers at musicians friend today. Instruments were previously ordered on this site because they sell good and quality instruments and delivered it free of charge.
The holiday season is always exciting and the most wonderful time of the year. Its Friday again and our division is having an exclusive party for us. We have it on the third floor in the social hall where it can accommodate us personnel including some guests. I am always ready especially during this event as I prepared ahead the blouse that I would be wearing for the Christmas party. Today I am wearing a a fashionable orange colored top blouse. It is made of polyester, a little see through where I can wear and inside sleeveless above the lingerie. I pair it with a soft, spandex, draw string, skinny nude pants together with some flats. Picture takings are here and there. Love this day!
My office mate gave me a bottle of volumizing shampoo last month as part of our holiday gift giving time. It is about 350 ml size of bottle made of imported quality. Good timing because I have no more shampoo in my bathroom and I have now a new one to use. My hair is quite choosy in terms of shampoo that I am using because it is color treated and sometimes prone to dryness and frizz. Now my hair looks shinny and manageable even if I use the shampoo daily. Thank you to my office mate who is generous to give my wish last holiday season.
My relatives went home for a vacation last holiday season. They stayed until the new year and we had so much time together to enjoy the reunion. I was requested to inquire about some vans for hire. There are lots of service vehicles that offer actually and I just have to schedule it in advance to reserved the time and day. Good thing I was able to hire one that is fit for the whole family. It is a spacious van that can occupy up to eighteen persons. The van was rented at five thousand five hundred for the whole day. It served us while visiting some malls, restaurants and even until going to the airport. I like riding in this kind of vehicle because it is very comfortable and safe. A nice of van service that we had here in the city.
Gospel: Mt 2:1–12- When Jesus was born in Bethlehem, in Judea, during the days of king Herod, wise men from the East arrived in Jerusalem. They asked, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw the rising of his star in the East and have come to honor him.” When Herod heard this he was greatly disturbed, and with him all Jerusalem. He immediately called a meeting of all high-ranking priests and teachers of the law, and asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In the town of Bethlehem in Judea,” they told him, “for this is what the prophet wrote: And you, Bethle-hem, in the land of Judah, you are by no means the least among the clans of Judah, for from you will come a lead¬er, one who is to shepherd my people Israel.” Then Herod secretly called the wise men and asked them the precise time the star appeared. He sent them to Bethlehem with these instructions, “Go and get accurate information about the child. As soon as you have found him, report to me, so that I, too, may go and honor him.” After the meeting with the king, they set out. The star that they had seen in the East went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. The wise men were over¬joyed on seeing the star again. They went into the house, and when they saw the child with Mary his mother, they knelt and worshiped him. They opened their bags and offered him their gifts of gold, incense and myrrh. In a dream they were warned not to go back to Herod, so they returned to their home country by another way.Life surprises us with its sudden intrusion of our comfort zone. Like Herod who was jolted from his complacency when his being the only king of the Jews was challenged by the birth of a new King, we too are brought news that challenges our own settled ways, routine and old mentalities. Then, we feel insecure; we get into action; we spend tremendous amount of energy just to secure what we have. We even trick others and ourselves into thinking that we are ready for the change that will happen ahead. We miss the opportunity to grow. The new year is here and as I remember the past year with positivity full of hopes that this another year be offered to God who is always in control of my life.
