Two days after our wedding day, we toured our Indonesian friends (who came over just for our wedding!) to Corregidor. Kind of late, but I just wanted to share my favorite photo! We didn’t want to wear matching colors (we hate matching!) but I really wanted to wear my yellow shirt that day and he really wanted to wear his yellow polo shirt that day as well so… no compromise! Haha!
Can’t believe I’ve been a wife for a month already. My friends keep telling me it’s so hard to believe, and I must admit, sometimes, I find it hard to believe as well! But whenever people ask me how it has been so far, the first thing I blurt out is “it’s been so much fun!” and by God’s grace, that’s really how I feel (after all, the Bible does say that “…from the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks!”)
You might say, it’s only been a month so of course it’s been fun, but if you only knew! Haha! Nothing is perfect and we encounter (and continue to encounter) different challenges each day, but it’s such a comfort to know that at the end of it all, though we are fighting battles, we are fighting them together. We are on the same team and we report only to One, and that’s Jesus. :)
If I could leave all you beautiful girls with only one piece of (love) advice, it would be this; to let Him write your love story. Let Him write it without you manipulating the situation, without you hanging on to a past love, without you refusing and disobeying. When He says let go, let go. When He says wait, just wait. I know letting go is hard (especially for all you romantics, like me!) and I know waiting is even harder (especially for all you impatient girls, like me too!) but I promise you, truly, if God asks you to wait, He will make sure the wait will be worth it.
Trust me, you want a man who’s fighting battles not only for you but also for God. You want someone on the right side… on God’s side. Because we know when the King of Kings is on our side, who can ever be against us? :) (Romans 8:31)
