He Has Spoken. Don’t Mess Up.

One of the kids in my acrylic painting class about two or three summers ago, painted a beautiful picture of a sunset. He was so happy and proud of it that he stood and announced to the whole class, “No one messes up with my painting, or else, I will be very sad.” None of the other kids messed up with it and he was very happy.

I can’t help but think the same about God’s beautiful and perfect design of marriage and how the highest court of the United States of America had deliberately messed it up. God must be very sad right now. And I weep at this thought. 
We live in a fallen world that continues to despise the name of the Lord and His Word and nothing is more painful in the heart than this. One day the trumpet will sound for His coming and He will put an end to all of these. For the meantime, let us continue to hope and pray for God’s sovereignty to reign in this world, and may God bless America.
“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” – Isaiah 55:11

Two Special Men to Celebrate on One Special Day

What a great day today to celebrate two occasions that are very important to me personally. Celebrating my father, who has a great sense of humor, for Father’s day, and the 9th year of being married to a wonderful and funny husband! These two men bring so much laughter and love in my life. 
So thank you, Gino, for pursuing me every day all through these years. The woman that I have grown to who I am today as a result of your love and leadership in our home, is something I will never trade for anything in this world. I love and respect you because you build our marriage on the solid-rock foundation of our Lord Jesus Christ. And for that, I am forever grateful. Happy Anniversary G. I love you every day.
My father is an over protective and a very strict man that he set curfews for me even when I was already 21. So when my husband asked my father that he wanted to marry me, I was nervous that my father will make it difficult to give us his blessings. Gino rehearsed his speech more than 3 times but none of it came out when he sat face to face with my father. He confessed he was nervous too and went straight to the point instead, “I want to marry your daughter, is that okay with you?” Up to this day, it makes me laugh when I remember how my father answered that question with a question too, “Are you sure?”, to which my husband confidently replied with, “Yes Sir, I am!” Obviously, he did not know what he was getting into. 🙂 So on this Father’s Day, I want to thank my Pa for graciously letting me go to marry the man my Ma and I have prayed for. He did not make it difficult as I thought he would because he knew me. He raised me and therefore, he trusted me. Happy Father’s Pa. I miss you and I am sending you my love across the miles.
