June. School holidays. Wedding seasons.
Been to a cousin's wedding mass last Friday. Although, I've been to so many wedding masses before, there will always be that feeling of - " Wow, she or he is getting married".
The very-almost-same feeling I experienced once I entered the church that Friday. It was a mixed feeling - happy, mesmerized, wonderful, great and so much more.
Life-Calling. This was one of the topic that caught me when the Father was giving his homily.
In life, there are three callings - Single, Single and Religious, Married. All these three callings are good.
These days, we tend to follow and expected to follow the norms around us.
At the age of 25++, you already have a stable job and you are engaged to be married. That's the norm.
But the truth is, not all of us have that very same kind life stage. That includes me. I don't have a stable job yet and even far from getting married.
So, at one point, being a youth, somehow somewhere there is a time that you feel so left out and you wanted the same life stage happening in your life. That is also the time where you end up making a rush and soon to be regretful decision in your life.
Just because your bff is getting married at the age of 25, doesn't mean that you have to get married on that very same age. Phew, blame the peer pressure I guess.
Well, as the Father was saying, all you need to do is pray for your life callings. Ask guidance from God. Define what you real life calling are and follow it.
I, for once never have thought of that. Praying for my life calling. I've always thought that I will soon get married, and have a family of my own. But this homily, open up my eyes and to be exact my heart. To pray to God on what my real life callings are.
Till then, take care.
