Before and After Sunday Church

Hi, everyone! Good day to y'all!

After a two or three-day spring-like, mild weather, we're now encountering cold weather again. Well, I hope there's no more snow on the way because we've got enough already for the past two months , I would say.

This weekend, my daughter Tintin came home because she's scheduled to play piano in this Christian church in neighboring city, here in Hampton Roads. As always, we're glad to see her home from D-ville where she's currently employed.

Yesterday, Tintin, my sis-in-law Rose, wife Freny and I visited our tax preparer in Virginia Beach. We submitted important papers/documents she needs in preparing for our tax returns for 2013. Afterwards, we decided to go to one of our favorite Filipino/Oriental restaurants, FeLynn's. There we bought rice cakes and other food to go.

Today, Sunday, Tintin, Freny, and I attended Mass at our parish, St. Paul's Catholic Church in Portsmouth. No, Freny and I  did not have any assignment or were not scheduled as Eucharistic ministers in today's Eucharistic celebration. Nevertheless, we're ready and available to fill in if one of our fellow Eucharistic minister (or ministers) doesn't show up. Rev. Fr. Gino, our parochial vicar, celebrated the Mass with us.

After the Communion, we left the church quietly because we don't want to be late for daughter Tintin's scheduled gig as a paid pianist in a Christian church in neighboring city, every other Sunday, unless otherwise indicated.

As always, we participated in the church worship service there. We prayed and sang with the rest of members of faith community there. Pastor Dan delivered a stirring sermon, talking about issues relating to exploitation of natural resources for their own benefits, damaging the environment.

After church, we had lunch at Taco Bell in Chesapeake. Then, we went home. After an hour, Tintin left 757 for D-ville. Btw, she called us a few minutes ago informing us she arrived there safe and sound. Thank God.

Well, to capture the moments we have had together, here are the photos for you all dear folks and friends, near or far...Thanks for watching and reading my blog. Do appreciate it.
