It's Our 25th (SILVER) Wedding Anniversary
On April 25, 1985, my wife and I were married. After 25 years of blissful marriage, we had four offsprings- 3 boys and 1 girl. Our eldest is already 24 years old and is working in a call center at Cubao, Metro Manila. Our second eldest is 20 years old and is also working in an insurance firm in Makati, Metro Manila. Our third and youngest son is entering 3rd year high school in June and our youngest and only girl is 8 years old and will enter grade 3 this June also. We would have wanted to hold a special renewal of vows and a grand celebration with family, relatives and friends. We would have been so overjoyed by this momentous event. But it would not be so. My wife is in the US working and my children and I are in the Philippines. Why do I feel so lonely and empty inside? Because my wife cannot come to the Philippines because her papers are not yet in order and if she does, she could no longer go back to the US to work again. But even though this has happened, I am still very happy and joyful for I know that my God has something better in store for all of us. I will be cooking spaghetti with carbonara sauce for my kids as we thank God for all the blessings we have so abundantly received from Him. It's a dual celebration because the 26th of April is the 24th birthday of my eldest son. In all these things, all I can say is "TO GOD BE THE GLORY NOW AND FOREVERMORE."
