This day in history from:

Cemetery Run, second day

Just got back from the second day of our weekend-long cemetery run.

This time, it was our turn to visit my paternal aunt and her husband, my maternal grandparents, the husband of my maternal aunt, and that dear friend.

The visit to my maternal relatives was ordinary fare. It's another chance for my mother to get together with her sisters, which is not a rare occasion.

But this is the first time I would visit my dear friend on this day of remembrance. I took Bea with me because she's my friend's goddaughter. Unfortunately their family's mausoleum was locked and we just got a glimpse of her.

Fortunately, we were not alone. We met her cousin there, with her family. But since the doors were locked, we did not stay for long.

Bea and I left early because she has an overnight birthday party at a nearby hotel. My sister scolded me for allowing her to attend but I let her attend, anyway. It's still her vacation time.

That also gave me a good reason to leave early and beat the traffic slowly building up at the cemetery. It appears that people prefer to flock the place starting late afternoon to the evening because of this unusually hot weather we are having at this time of year.

Anyway, I'm back home now, blogging and resting for the busy week ahead. Unlike my kids, I don't have a semestral break. It will also be another crucial week ahead so I better end this entry. Oh, it's also a crucial week for the world also, because of the 2008 US Presidential Elections.

Again, have a safe and meaningful weekend.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
