Gospel: Mk 13:33–37 – Be alert and watch, for you don’t know when the time will come. When a man goes abroad and leaves his home, he puts his servants in charge, giving to each one some responsibility; and he orders the doorkeeper to stay awake. So stay awake, for you don’t know when the Lord of the house will come, in the evening or at midnight, when the cock crows or before dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him catch you asleep.And what I say to you, I say to all: Stay awake!”Vigilance makes us ready for anything. We will not be caught surprised and unaware. This is the admonition of the Lord to all His followers. In this world there are many temptations to slacken or even relax our principles drawn from the gospel. So many philosophies of life compete with the teachings of the Lord. They are seductive, very tempting and pleasing to our senses. It is only with the greatest vigilance that we can tear ourselves away sometimes from their hypnotic spell. We have to keep our gaze firmly on the Lord who will come. Meanwhile, we prepare. May the Lord see us awake when He comes again in His glory. Today’s gospel is about being mindful of the society that we are living. There are many ideologies that would seem to be pleasing for us but it is not in accordance to the way God has taught us to do.

It comes with an extension pole handle for easy reaching and cleaning. This duster with handle is lightweight and easy to use.Cleans cobwebs, walls, ceilings, cornices, floors. Handle extends to 59 inches. Ideal for cleaning high corners and crown molding moldings. This is very useful when cleaning home during weekends.
I love wearing fashionable yet comfortable blouses especially during Fridays at work because it is a free day to wear civilian clothing in the office. Today is Friday and I am always excited to wear my favorite get up. I decide to wear jeans and a blue cotton stripe blouse. The blouse was newly given to me by my sister the other week. I like it because it is collared and the color can match any jeans that I would wear. The quality is very good and stylish. I can wear it even in casual days like malling or any outdoor activities.
I personally appreciate the presence of multimedia in today’s modern world. It is an information content processing device such as computerized or electronic devices. These are most commonly electronic media devices used to store and experience multimedia content. Examples for the multimedia are cellular phones, Twitter, Facebook, Skype. These are only examples and there are still many that are available in the market to be use for many certain purposes. I personally appreciate the Skype because I am able to communicate to love ones in other places in live and real time. To sum up, these multimedia devices make the lives of modern people today easy and fast.
It is almost the month end for the month of November and the days are getting busy especially in the office. I am occupied with lots of deadlines from different kinds of incoming communications in the human resource section. What I am doing is to prioritize things and take each report as complete and accurate as possible so that I would not take a repeat in process. The work is actually easy but the bulk of all transactions coming in everyday are more. I have to take my work as light as possible or else I would get stressed out and I do not like to feel it. Work as to what you can take for the day.
Most of my jeans are on smaller sizes ranging from twenty five, twenty six, twenty seven and twenty eight. Very small for my current waistline actually because most of the jeans that I have were bought many years back. One night my sister arrived and gave me a dark blue skinny jeans. The waistline is size thirty two. Just fit for me and it has an allowance of one inch that has a room if ever I will be getting weight. The quality of the jeans is very good because it is made of spandex material that can fit to any body size. It has a nice fitting on my butt and makes me feel sexy to wear it with my favorite top blouses of any color and design.
Gospel: Mt 25:31–46 – When the Son of Man comes in his glory with all his angels, he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be brought before him; and, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, so will he do with them, placing the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left. The king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, blessed of my Father! Take possession of the kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world. For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you welcomed me into your home. I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to see me.’Then the righteous will ask him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, and give you food; thirsty, and give you something to drink; or a stranger, and welcome you; or naked, and clothe you? When did we see you sick, or in prison, and go to see you?’ The king will answer, ‘Truly I say to you: just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did it to me.’Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Go, cursed people, out of my sight, into the eternal ﬁre, which has been prepared for the devil and his angels! For I was hungry, and you did not give me anything to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not welcome me into your house; I was naked, and you did not clothe me; I was sick, and in prison, and you did not visit me.’ They, too, will ask, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, thirsty, naked or a stranger, sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ The king will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you: just as you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me.’And these will go into eternal punishment; but the just, to eternal life.” The gospel speaks about the second coming of Jesus Christ as the glorious and majestic king of heaven and earth. This is the time to reflect on the readings that our existence in this planet can be the basis on how are we going to be judge when we will depart.
Sometimes it is fun to just go on window shopping on the mall. That is without any intentions to really buy some stuff. I went to the mall a month ago and while I did some strolling, I found a stall that sells some vintage necklaces. I am a user of such vintage necklace especially on Fridays where it is a civilian clothing day. I wear it with my favorite blouses – plain specifically like tops colored mint green, black, white or brown. The bronze necklace can be wear in any kind of color. It greatly matches well. Accessorizing my clothing adds some feminine looks and modern way of in style fashion of today.
My sister went to the grocery shop in the mall one weekday afternoon to buy a bottle of red wine for home use. I find red wine as one important drink to have at home. It is a type of wine that is made from dark colored grape varieties. There are a lot of uses of red wine at home. It can be taken as a drink, as a cooking ingredient or can be an alcohol mix for medicinal use. Red wine has good health benefits especially for the heart. Taking a little amount of it before sleeping keeps me sleep well at night. Most of the red wine being sold in the market here are imported products so the price ranges from four dollars up depending on the brand. I hope to buy some more especially that the holiday season is coming up.
It was a sunny afternoon yesterday at the office and me and my office mates were very busy because there were lots of deadlines especially in the seminars, employees’ attendance, training, reports, memorandum and other related reports with regards to human resource and management. My office mate went out for a while because her daughter came to visit her. She brought with her their new honda car colored gray. They bought it few months ago and it was registered under the name of my office mate. the car was specially bought for her family because of her father who is already in his senior years. It would be for their comfort and they can use it wherever they will go. I saw their new car and it looks nice and very modern. For sure it would be very much beneficial for the use of her family.
