often struggle in our life everyday whether we are at home, office, business,
and other communities. It has been our
part of life that we always face opposition from our family members, relatives,
friends, office mates, business associates, and other community members. In addition, the struggle within ourselves is
even worst than any other struggles, especially when we are exposed to more
temptations whether at work, business, and other communities also. The choices, preferences, principles, and
priorities we have in our life can determine if we are faithful or not to
Gospel values that Jesus has taught us.
It is always a challenge on our part to do our discipleship every day
because we all, sometime or in the future, will face the inevitable
consequences of our choices, decisions, and priorities. Division, strife, and animosity within the
family household and other communities are the realities of life that challenge
us how we should resolve them at whatever cost it may cause us. Though we are not all perfect, the way we
live our lives is the way to preach the Gospel.

Though it hurts her daughter, her own daughter wasn’t able to do
anything to contradict her husband’s decision.

in her own house when he left for abroad.
"I will sing of your salvation. In you, O Lord, I take refuge; let me never be put to shame. In your justice rescue me and deliver me; incline your ear to me, and save me. Be my rock of refuge, a stronghold to give me safety, for you are rock and my fortress. O my God, rescue me from the hand of the wicked. For you are my hope, O Lord, my trust, O God from my youth. On you I depend my birth; from my mother's womb, you are my strength. My mouth shall declare your justice, day by day your salvation. O God, you have taught me from my youth, and till the present I proclaim your wondrous deeds."
