We just finished dinner in the mall and our son Ryan wanted to buy some cotton candy. One bag costs P25.00. I knew I didn’t have enough cash anymore so I rummaged through my wallet and bag and came up with one 20 peso bill and 4 peso coins. I was short by P1.00. I asked Paolo if he had any coins in his pocket but just like me, he was broke. πŸ˜€ My poor Ryan, he was so looking forward to enjoying his cotton candy. We proposed for him to sing in front of people and maybe someone will throw in a few coins. Or he could give the saleslady at the cotton candy stall his most pitiful, heart-rending look and maybe she would take pity on him and accept his P24.00. Of course, he didn’t agree to do any of these. I told Nathan to do one of his magic tricks and get one coin from my ear. Well, he tried, but he came up empty-handed. So finally, I said, “Ok let’s pray that somehow God will make a one-peso coin appear from nowhere.” That seemed like a ridiculous prayer, right?

I asked Paolo if he was playing a trick on me and put the coin there, but he really didn’t! God did literally make that coin appear from nowhere! How amazing is that!

  1. aww, this one is really cute! ang sweet ni God…He gave you 1 peso! galeng!

    btw, i saw you and pastor paolo a few weeks ago at the medical city as i was leaving. na-confine din po kasi anak ko. i wasn’t able to say hi coz you already walked past me. i saw you with a girl on a wheelchair. is it janina? what happened to her? my husband said hi to pastor paolo at the ER without even introducing himself. LOL. so please tell pastor that the man at the ER was my husband. hehe.

    1. hi honney! yes we were at medical city coz janina fractured her arm. she had to be confined too. what happened to your daughter? is she ok now?

  2. Thanks for blogging about these faith building stories. It inspires and builds our faith. Great job.

    Just think if God can give us 1 peso, he can also give us 1M if we asked really nicely. =)

    1. Jeremy, it’s funny coz i actually told Ryan that I should have asked for 1M pesos instead. He said, “Mom, I’m glad God didn’t give us 1M because how can we bring all those coins home?” πŸ˜€
