A Dozen Years of Marriage

 

It was on the same day today, exactly 12 years ago, when my then boyfriend and I march in a small and tight aisle in one of the courtroom at the Hall of Justice in Cagayan de Oro City to say “I do” and sign that document called marriage contract. Yes, it has been 12 years and oh man, I feel like being so old now. Lol.

I posted this picture this morning to mark our 12th wedding anniversary and it garnered over a hundred of likes and loves and tens of happy anniversary and cool greetings.

Being married to my husband is not a walk in the park that is for sure. We have had differences but they were never a hindrance to exercise our commitment and faithfulness to each other and to the God we serve. We celebrated our anniversary in the simplest style we know how as we are not into grand celebration at all.

Here’s hoping that our marriage is a testament of God’s ideal one here on earth as we live to be good examples to our children and to everybody else around us. God’s mercies are new every morning and He is the only one worth emulating.

We didn’t have a grand wedding 12 years ago but we strive to work on having a great marriage¬†every day and that is what matters the most.

 

Vintage Electric Guitar

 

Those Fender Vintage Telecasters or electric guitars are simply the coolest, don’t you think? After having moved here to Keene Texas almost two years ago, my family and I have been more exposed to the world of music because here at the university, music is such an integral part of our holistic environment.

Being in an Adventist community, it is undeniable that music is part of our everyday lives. When we go to church, members of all ages sing a song and sure we all do every praise and worship. Having said that, musical instrument is always a part of us and not just on special occasions.

As a matter of fact, our daughter who is taking piano lessons right now have once asked me if it is okay for her to learn how to play the bass¬†guitar. I don’t mind, but I told her for now, she has to focus on her current music lesson and the rest will just follow. I thought it would be cool to someday own a vintage electric guitar for our future music studio here at home.
