Good Friday

I miss Holy Week in the Philippines..Here in the US, Easter is just all about the bunny and the eggs..it’s not about Jesus. It makes me sad, and at the same time, I feel very guilty because since I’ve been here I haven’t really been the best Christian. I find it hard to make it to church every Sunday, because of Tim’s schedule. There are certain Sundays when he’s not home, and we only have one car.. not that I would have driven alone even if I could. Tim’s family isn’t Catholic so I am too shy to ask them to drive me to church.. I also haven’t really followed the fasting diet and I’ve pretty much been eating anything I want. Also, I don’t really think I gave anything up for lent. What is up with me? To make it worse, instead of really remembering the meaning of lent and contemplating on Jesus’ sacrifice, all I do each day is worry about my green card and go on facebook/wordpress/visajourney..

And today is just one of those days where I really miss my parents, because I always used to spend holy week with them. šŸ˜¦

Oh well.. let this be a lesson learned for everyone.. I’ve been selfish this whole season, just worrying about myself instead of looking at the bigger picture. We still have time to remember the spirit of Lent and Easter.

God never said that it would be easy. He only said that it would be worth it.
