"In this sweet, bye and bye,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore;
In this sweet, bye and bye,
We shall meet on that beautiful shore."
For the past few years, I have been serving for more than 15 funeral services, infant baptisms and even wedding masses in the church. There's always sadness and there's also always gladness. I used to see people cry, I used to see people laugh and I even see some will shout in joy. As for today, I served for a funeral service this morning but it was kinda different from those previous funeral services. I feel that the church today is filled with sadness and sorrows. Ok, I know that this is normal but i can't sense there is a mind of peacefulness. I nearly unable to control my emotions but i tell myself that "I should not fall into deep sadness" (as I used to tell myself everytime when I go for funeral services), only then I was able to hold my tears.
I still remember there was once I served for a funeral service on a New Year morning, it's really first of January. My father screwed me upside down on the phone when I told my mum that I was going back late at that time. He said that I shouldn't be going for these kind of ceremonies on a new year day as it will bring me bad luck, so on and so fore. But I insisted on serving for the funeral service as that is part of my duty. Secondly, I am not superstitious at all. Frankly speaking, I hate 风水as this is just a channel of earning big money by calling you to buy this and that. And thirdly is that I know that death is always unpredictable. This is really true! There was not even once I know when my grandmas were going off at that time. Absolutely! I don't mind anyone saying that I am too devoted into doing this kind of jobs in the church. Maybe I am some kind of weirdoooooo that do not really go thro' a normal teenager's life... Anyway, it is up to everyone to think about it, everyone has their own opinion. Most importantly is stand strong on your stand!
