my youngest son`s wedding day....

tag-lish ito ha?  just to express myself more.... ( I supposed to give this to them as a mother`s message on his wedding reception  pero hindi natuloy dahil wala akong boses.  Hindi ako pinatawad ni mr. cough and cold!)

Today, May 7, 2016 ay ikakasal na ang bunso ko..... dumating na din ang araw na ito na pinakahihintay at pinaghandaan nya at ni Jeanne... isa pang milestone sa buhay nya na aking nasaksihan bilang kanyang ina...  hindi ko ipagpapalit ang tuwa at saya na nababasa ko sa kanyang mga mata.... he`s marrying the woman he love.  it`s been a long wait,  separating themselves, ilang taon na iningatan ang sarili para sa isa`t isa and finally heto na nga ang araw na yun,  its all worth it.....

As usual I am in a stage of mix emotion!  graduate na kami! napakasal na namin silang tatlo!  God has been good.  they are amazing, great  kids and I believed with the help of the Lord my husband and I have raised them well.  I know they would build  for themselves ideal families,  first and foremost because they love the Lord and they would lead their children in the fear and knowledge of God..  I am happy for offering them all to the Lord.

but hope you understand......may lungkot din na nararamdaman :(   every parent can relate with me, I guess so.    kahit gaano man sila lumaki.  successful man sa buhay o hindi.  maging sila man ang presidente ng isang bansa, pinakamayaman sa mundo,  gaano man ka famous o popular,  sa paningin natin sila yung musmos na batang nagmamay-ari sa mundo ng isang ina.... I will always treasure those  times when I held them in my arms loving them,  caring for them,   those times when I felt they needed me more than anybody else in the world,  and I am the most important person in their life, hehe, drama naman........ hindi maiwasang emote, emote!

its letting go for here comes this woman that would take my place in caring for my "little one",  somebody to love him in a way that's more deeper and intense than a mothers love can give.... I know this moment in my children`s life would come,  women who would tenderly love them and they would love in return...  with this I am glad!

My wish for you of course is happiness and blessings na nagbibigay saya... Lalo na mga anak na darating sa buhay ninyo.  They are blessing beyond  measure!

Payo ko, always keep the fires of love burning,  respect and trust for each other... If these virtues are present in your married life these will help you surpass the ups and downs that comes your way....Most importantly,  Keep the Lord in the center of your relationship...Ipagpatuloy ninyo ang pagpapagamit at pagmamahal sa Gawain ng Panginoon. .Always let Him be the Lord and King,  you will never go wrong mga anak!

Verniel & Jeanne always remember na andito lang kami ni dad, reaching out whenever you need us.  In every twist and turn that you take, our prayers, support and love will be following you....

Lastly,  we happily welcome you Jeanne Marie into our you both!!

my 2nd son, charis` wedding day

May 27, 2013.......

It has warmed our hearts to see your love bloom and mature into the beautiful commitment we witnessed during your wedding day.  Chong, you have made us proud with the beautiful person you have become inside and out, especially living the way God wants you to live.  There is joy in our hearts knowing that we are not losing a son but gaining a daughter.   Welcome to the family Paulynne Grace.   We wish you both a life together filled with love and happiness!

As we all know marriage is all about commitment and trust.  Making it last often takes a lot of work. But with God being in the center of your relationship the love you two shared is worth the effort.  Enjoy your married life.  Have fun!  Make the Lord Jesus Christ the heart of that union, the Light in your home.... You will never go wrong!

We love you and always will,
Dad & mom

anniversary month!

Our church anniversary celebration went well but different from how we celebrated the others in the past.. We enjoyed the fellowship with our church families, sharing the foods that each of us brought....It was an all day affair. The games which were well participated by everyone were most fun and memorable, we wished the day won`t end.

We missed the presence of dave & jhoy who were at that time are already in Ohio.. we`re looking forward for more church anniversaries to come and new souls added to HCJC...

HCJC, our family in the kingdom of God...

this is for you "pangga" (heart`s day)

This week the world celebrated what they call "valentines day". Almost everyone I met in the streets seemed to be in a hurry, carrying either a bunch of beautiful flower arrangements tied in colorful ribbons of pink and red, or bags full of goodies, stuff toys and chocolates too! I know for sure those they would fondly offer to someone special who causes their heart to beat faster, ehehe!. It is a matter of the heart they said, kaya nga heart`s day, :-)

But thinking about matters of the heart, i can`t help thinking and have something to say about my wonderful husband. And when I do, heart`s day is everyday for me though it`s not always days full of happiness and laughter, not bed of roses for both of us. Like all other couples, we have our "moments", loving, sometimes miserable moments too, but the love I feel for him the day i met him has never left my heart and i know it will remain there forever. I call him "dad" for he is such an amazing, responsible father to our children, and "pangga" for being loving, passionate and caring husband to me. You put smiles on my face dad, bringing out the "best" in me....yet bearing and understanding my "worst.. I love you!

I dedicate this song to you. The words are what i am trying to tell you for so long...

(Through the years)

I can`t remember when you weren`t there
when i didn`t care for anyone but you
I swear we`ve been through everything there is,
can`t imagine anything we`ve missed
can`t imagine anything the two of us can`t do..

through the years you`ve never let me down, you turned my life around
the sweetest days i`ve found, i`ve found with you
through the years i`ve never been afraid i`ve loved the life we`ve made
and i`m so glad i`ve stayed right here with you
through the years..

i can`t remember what i used to do
who i trusted whom, i listened to before
i swear you taught me everything i know
can`t imagine someone so, but through the years
it seem to me i need you more and more
through the years through all the good and bad,
i knew how much we had, i`ve always been so glad
to be with you, through the years its better everyday
you`ve kissed my tears away, as long as its okay
i`ll stay with you through the years..

through the years when everything went wrong
together we were strong
i know that i belonged right here with you
through the years i never had a doubt
we`d always work things out, i`ve learned what loves about
by loving you through the years..

changes ( for the better)

After the most memorable reunion of pattsclan in Bohol, the family flown and gathered in Laguna (my siblings rented a big house, nearly a mansion..:D) and there celebrated new year`s eve together, although some members of the clan were not able to join us but those of us who were present, did have fabulous and joyful moments. Such wonderful feeling of togetherness. I felt as though the world is also celebrating the festivity with us even how simple it all was. There was lightness of spirit among us as we all together welcome the year 2012. While the night drifted away unto the new year we made our piece of noises, being our own crazy selves, but the best part, accepting and loving one another - we had our moments of fun.

But like all others it has to end.. I woke up from a nap one afternoon feeling heavy with sadness and can`t help it but to permit myself to cry to my heart`s content like a little girl looking for her dear mother who has abandoned her. It was "change". I am so caught unaware.

Nakakalungkot lang...biglang nag-uwian lahat..isa-isang umuwi with their family to their respective homes far away. ( years na naman bago magkita-kita).. It was also during this time that my son, dave left for the States to fulfill God`s calling to minister in a church in Ohio.. I realized he would be gone for a long time and maybe would decide to make that place his permanent home... I just felt so empty in my nest, and was it pain that rested in my heart?

This part of parenthood has finally arrived for me. I want to reach out and continue holding on to these people i love so dearly. Keeping them near all the time, but i know i can`t do that now...I would have to let go and let this changing world to lead us and taking the reigns of time. That`s what life is all about. To part from loveones is difficult and painful but we have our lives to live now, hard to admit, our own separate ways. This is part of how the world and this life we have will submit to change. My consolation is God will not let changes hold us for the worst but for the better. This is His promise to those who continue to trust and love Him.

I am constantly reminded that through all the changes in life, God remains unchanged. He never changes and His promises remains forever true! I will continue to rest in His Word for I know through thick and thin He`s always with me..

Isaiah 46:6 "Even to your old age and grey hairs I am He; I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you!

Thank you Lord!
