Blessed Weekend

The weekend is here, it's Easter Weekend so we are not open tomorrow Friday (at work), my usual days off are Saturday and Sunday, so it's a 3 day weekend for me!!!

I know for many people around the world Easter is a very important religious celebration and even though I was raised Catholic I don't practice this religion as to go to church, but by all means I believe in God, he is the most important of everything I am and everything I have.

But like I said before, I was raised Catholic and during my life I been fortunate to interact with people that practice different religions or just have other believes/faiths, this helped me appreciate and respect them, even if they don't apply to my concepts of faith and spirituality.

Just the other day I hear somebody say  "going to church doesn't make you religious anymore than standing in a garage makes you car", a lot of people now a days go to church, act all good inside the temple and then is a COMPLETELY different story, what's the point of that? dunno...

So whatever your beliefs are, may those be genuine and that this few days are celebrated and enjoyed with the spirit of your believes guiding you to strike a better yourself but mostly to act better towards other living  beings...

In my case, I will try to be present in all, thankful for what I have, always being provided by God. Although my next choice will be... 

But before I starting enjoying my 3 days off, here's my one advice for the weekend...

Happy Easter!!!

I love this post!
Indeed, what a blessing it is to interact with people of different religions and faiths. It fosters a greater tolerance between nations and the fact we have our humanity in common, even if we're not of the same "belief". It's distressing to think how relligion has divided (still does) humanity.

May you enjoy Easter in what is a meaningful way to you, and as for the last point in your post - AMEN... I couldn't agree more!! Actaully just did it for a few days and couldn't believe how many people I met :)
