Florence + the Machine - Last Christmas
When I was a kid, my Dad used to love either biking or driving every morning and afternoon. And I remember moments where he would drive around, me on the front seat, just to listen to Christmas songs. This was one of the songs I always asked him to play. I miss that. <3
Para san pa ang Noche Buena, kung di kakain ng samasama? :)
Eat with your family. Merry Christmas everyone :)
“Ate! Ate! Can I ask you a question?” Jimmy said while unwrapping the gifts he received this Christmas. “Sure honey. What is it?” I said as I brush the hair away from his face.
Jimmy, like the other kids, can’t just stay in one place. He run around and plays with his toys all the time. Being an only child, he loves seeing people around him. This time, it’s different. He doesn’t run around the house to irritate us with his mischievousness.
“Uhm… I just learned from school last week that Christmas is Papa Jesus’ birthday,” he said, still having a hard time opening his not so few gifts. “Hmm… well, if that is so, Ate, why are we the ones who ask for gifts? Isn’t that bad?”
I saw his innocent eyes getting all teary. “I think I’m a bad kid. I ask too much. Papa Jesus will hate me.”
His face made my heart melt. How could these words come out from such a little kid?
“Oh baby, don’t cry. Papa Jesus will not hate you. You know why?” I said as I put him on my lap. “He gives us the privilege to ask for gifts or things we want this Christmas because seeing us happy is the best gift He could ever receive on His birthday.”
He looked at me, gave me peck on my cheeks and wiped his tears. “I love you Ate! And from now on, I will not be sad every Christmas for Papa Jesus!”
“Good. He sees you and I know that He is very proud of you Jimmy.”
Hindi mo maiaalis ang balita sa telebisyon ng mga Pinoy. Kanina ay napanood ko sa 24oras ang balita tungkol sa mga nasunugan…
Reporter: Ano na ho ang balak niyo ngayong Pasko?
Ale: Wala. Wala na kaming handa. Magsisimba nalang. Magsisimba at magpapasalamat na walang nangyaring masama sa aming magpapamilya.
Ang lungkot. Ngayong Pasko pa sila tinamaan ng ganoong klaseng trahedya. Pero bakit ganon? Hindi pa rin sila nawalan ng pananampalataya sa Diyos. Ngayon ay ang kaarawan ng anak ng Diyos. Si Papa Jesus. Iniisip ko pa rin, bakit naman ganon pa ang nangyari sa kanila? Marami mang dahilan para sabihing hindi iyon makatwiran, naisip ko pa rin na baka ayun ang regalo nila.
Nangyari sa kanila iyon upang tumibay sila. Parang espada. Hindi ba sa proseso ng paggawa nito ay kelangan muna itong idaan sa nagliliyab na apoy? Baka ganon nga. Idinaan sila sa apoy, sa isang pagsubok, upang sa gayon ay tumibay sila. Hindi lang ang kanilang loob ngunit pati na rin ang kapit nila sa Diyos.
Nabuksan nila ang kanilang regalo. Ang katibayan. Marahil ay ibinigay ito upang sa mga susunod na pagsubok, isa na silang ganap na espada. Matibay.
Ikaw, anong regalo natanggap mo? :’D
A tiger mother lost her cubs from premature labour. Shortly after she became depressed and her health declined, and she was diagnosed with depression. So they wrapped up piglets in tiger cloth, and gave them to the tiger. The tiger now loves these pigs and treats them like her babies.
