consider this

The first text message I received this morning from a blogger friend.
Consider this: If you have food, clothes and a home, you are richer than 75% of the world; if you have some money in the bank, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy; if you woke up healthy this morning, you are more blessed than the one million who will not survive this week; if you have experienced peace and freedom, you are ahead of 500 million people in the world; if you can read this message, you are more blessed than over 2 billion people who cannot read at all! Won't you thank God for how blessed you are? Good morning!
I don't know if the data mentioned are accurate, but indeed, this is one of the reasons for me to smile and go to church every week , not only during holy week.

yun lang!

bull's eye ako dun ah. makasimba na rin nga every week. seriously, there is truth in that txt message and that we should be ever thankful for all our blessings.

hayz.. ako din nagsisimba kapag linggo. kaso minsan hindi at may magandang rason naman.

nagsimba ako kahapon kasama ina ko. nabadtrip ako ng sandali. ang daming tao... malamang kasi holy week nah. eh bat sila ganun, mahalagang okasyon lang sila nagsisimba... lalo na pag pasko.

simbang ligaw, simbang kaybigan, simbang pa-cute at simbang kain.. tsktsk... pero salamat narin at nagsimba sila.
