Paolo and I were seated separately at the wedding we attended yesterday because he was one of the principal sponsors. But while the Pastor was preaching his sermon, I got this text from him. Paolo is the sweetest husband!

do we pass the test?

Yesterday, some of you might have read on my Facebook status that I have written “So many things went wrong today, but still, God is good.” Top of the list was Ryan accidentally spilled water on their laptop. We immediately brought it to a Powermac service center, and found out that to have everything repaired will cost us more than P60,000! How ridiculous is that! But that’s not my point today 😉 Things like these will test our character, our values and our priorities. Here is my husband’s insightful blog about the whole incident.

what a dad!

My husband, Paolo, didn’t grow up with a dad. He met his dad when he was already 16. I had no idea what kind of father he would be to our kids. In fact, I was worried he wouldn’t know how to be a good father. I thank God for bringing men into my husband’s life who showed him how to be a father. And I am proud of how Paolo learned so quickly and was so eager to put everything into practice. Being a father is more than providing. It is being involved in every area of your kids’ lives, training them and discipling them in the ways of God. Paolo has been a father in every sense of the word.

5F’s of marriage

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in Marriage

Paolo and I came from the wedding of Gabe Gabriel and Diane Sipin, where we stood as principal sponsors. Yes, we were one of the ninongs and ninongs, and this wasn’t our first. The wedding was very touching and very sincere. Pastor Carlos, the officiating minister, shared to us the 5 F’s of a strong marriage. They were: FOUNDATIONS FAITHFULNESS FORGIVENESS FRUITFULNESS FUN It’s always good to be reminded of these things again and again. A great marriage doesn’t just happen. You make it happen, with God’s help. Here are some of our “pre-nup” pictures. Feeling newly-weds. Hehe… (thanks to our friend Jaja Suarez)

paolo surprises us

Posted on Posted in Family

We surprised Paolo on his birthday today. Unfortunately, we were the ones who got surprised because he showed up 30 min earlier than expected. Oh well… I thank God for everyone who celebrated this special day with him. Special thanks to Sheryl and Marge who helped me organize it.
