Blessed Sunday #4: A little distracted
I have a confession to make.
I got a little distracted during the service a while ago. I tried to keep my focus on what Pastor Paolo’s teaching us about God and Government, but deep inside the movie fan in me kept screaming wildly. And why not?! Piolo Pascual was sitting behind us! And not only that, he was with Mark Bautista, Christian Bautista, Erik Santos, Jeffrey Hidalgo and other non-showbiz people. Then a few minutes later, KC Concepcion arrived and sat next to us. And just when I was trying to REALLY focus on that day’s message, Ruffa Gutierrez walked in and sat one row apart from us where her friend Miriam Quiambao was waiting. What a star-studded Sunday we had, eh? I felt like my heart was going to burst out of my chest! LOL.
I tried to keep my sanity intact and succeeded on hiding my excitement — that is if you’re taking it from other people’s perspective.
But who am I fooling?
I might have fooled the people around me but I could never fool myself, could I? After all, it’s not everyday that you get to sit next to a hoard of celebrity.Â I knew I got a little distracted. And for a second I almost forgot why I was in church in the first place: to worship God and to thank Him for all the blessings he’s given me. We’ve been regularly attending Sunday services at Victory Fort for quite a while now and I am used to seeing one or two celebrities after the service, which is perfectly fine. But to actually be surrounded by quite a number of celebrities during the service is another story. Talk about major distraction! LOL.
Oh well…if this has been a test, then I must have failed miserably. God, forgive me!
