december 16...my lucky day!!!

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

it all started last 16th of december way back 2005...all the blessings happens to fall on this date every year for me...

december 16...is the first day of "simbang gabi"... people eagerly go to the church to attend the 9 mornings mass of "simbang gabi", although not all of them have the same intentions in completing the tradition, but most of them have the faith and believe that their wishes will be granted once the said 9 days of tirelessly waking up so early to attend the mass will be completed...praying to God and thanking Him with from the deepest of their heart and soul.


december 16, 2005-december 24, 2005 ...

i successfully (first ever) completed "simbang gabi" i attended..@ 4 o'clock in the morning for 9 straight days...

three months after, God given me the wish i am praying for...and i'm so blessed and thankful for giving me that "blessing"...and that makes me so happy until now...i can say that it can be last 'til i die...

since then, i always make it a point to attend "simbang gabi" every year...good thing, now at our church, we can attend "simbang gabi" starting every 15th of december 'til 23th of december at 830 in the evening...it is much easier for me 'coz of my busy work schedule...

i attended 2 out of 9 nights now...7 more nights to go...thanking God for all the gifts and blessings i received for the whole year...
