Children are one of the greatest blessings of family life. however, devoting our lives to them while neglecting our marriage and ourselves is asking for trouble tomorrow.
we are witnessing this first hand with both of our parents who are now empty nesters.
the love and companionship they are enjoying now is not one of circumstance or coincidence. it's one that results from intentionality and prioritization.
let’s make some steps today to shore up our love beyond the kids.
it was april 22 when i solemnly prayed at the st. mary's church. i was imagining that god and mama mary was in front of me. these are the words that i uttered:
"lord god, i'm getting scared. i'm already 29 and i still haven't found a good man. i'm afraid that i have been single for 3 years and i still haven't felt that love that i've been longing to feel. i could always hear the actresses being interviewed that they're happy with their lives as they've found the one and it's because they've prayed for it. my best friends are married and most friends my age are married as well and living a happy life. how about me? i think i'm a good person and i also deserve to be happy. you know what lord? sometimes i get really scared as i don't want to be an old maid and i wanna have kids. but whenever i think that you are still waiting for me to be ready to have a relationship i also feel relieved. lord god, i am putting everything in your hands, i know that you will give me the man who can give me the real happiness, the total happiness that i deserve and i'll always think that you are just busy preparing the best love story for me. i know that everything will happen in your time and i'll wait for that day to come. thank you so much for everything lord god. amen. 🙏🏼 and april 23.... i posted something on facebook and my high school batch mate commented on it. and that started our love story. ❤️ #answeredprayer#pray#truelovewaits#truelove#foreverlove#partnerincrime#matanikalbo#highschoolbatchmates#higschool#love#godislove#miraclehappens#righttime#happiness#dreamcometrue
