Friends and friends of friends were all getting married and it’s flooding my facebook. Each picture has a story to tell and each story is God-authored like mine. Three of those I witnessed recently are my friends and I am just so privileged to be able to experience how each of those love stories were sealed before God.
First in the list is the wedding of my high school best friend, Tina de Vera who officially became Mrs. Xavier Babista on July 12th. Tears welled up in my eyes as I looked at Tina walking down the aisle. She’s the most beautiful of all and I am just so happy that after a long wait she finally ended up with a man whose heart first belong to God. Xave’s vow was truthful and funny. I just love how he delivered it with all sincerity.
Second is our dear friend, Alex Compton who stood as Kris’s best man during our wedding. He tied the knot with his beautiful bride Michelle who was a picture of simplicity and modesty. He was nearly in tears when he said his vow “ I see you, I know you and I love you”. It brought tears to my eyes as to every one else as well. Alex’ wait has ended as he waited faithfully for God’s promise.
Third is my good friend LJ Moreno who became Mrs. Jimmy Alapag on August 19th. I saw how she loved and how her heart was broken. And then I witnessed how she stood up and found her security in God’s presence. I am proud of how she remained unshaken by the challenges she went through. I am just so happy that she ended up marrying the man who God intended for her.
Wedding is always a wonderful event. It is always to me a story of faithfulness and a remarkable end to a long wait. There may not be always a perfect wedding, but always a perfect couple.
And as for me, August 17th 2007 marked my own wonderful event when I married Kris who has since became my life. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness and for blessing us tremendously for the past three years and the years to come.
