♥ 10 days and counting...

And it will be our WEDDING DAY! It’s kinda mixed emotions but most of the time we are getting excited as we think how close it is from now..

So far sa preparation namin, we’re 89.91% done.. Hehe! At first kami ni Rai both nangangapa kung ano ang gagawin. Ang alam lang namin talaga at sure kami noon is magpapasakal, este mapapakasal kami. Mahirap siya sa umpisa kasi siguro ganyan talaga pag first time.. Hehehe! siyempre di namin alam ano ang flow ng kasal.. Though I attended many wedding ceremony before, and I enjoyed them, pero iba pala talaga pag wedding mo na ang pagpaplanohan mo kasi lahat ng wedding I attended, parang wala akong maalala para maincorporate ko siya sa wedding flow namin. Ganun din si Rai, walang alam. Namanhikan sina Rai, December 31, 2007. At January 2008, Rai and I began to plan for the wedding.

And so before worrying about anything, before sitting in for planning, we both prayed, and ask for God’s guidance. Then after praying, we formed the plan. We decided not to get a wedding planner, coz we have more benefits than to have one.. We both agreed sino ang kukunin naming Officiating Minister, and we also agreed kung ano ang theme ng kasal. At first gusto namin sa Hotel nalang lahat, ceremony and reception. But when we approached our Officiating Minister he recommended to us a place, and we come up a theme of Christian Garden Wedding, coz will be having it in Harbor Lights Hotel, yap makikita mo ang dagat. When we visited the place, Rai and I both love it. Pareho kami ni Rai, nature lover kaya patok sa amin yun.. So after booking the place, we then proceed to some other concerns sa kasal. Of course the date has been agreed long before.. it will be on May 17, 2008. That day will be our 12th monthsary and at the same time, kasal namin. Corny ba? Hahaha! Yun ang pabirong comment ni Mama Lenny (Rai’s mom) sa kay Rai during sa pamanhikan.

So ayun, patuloy kami sa plano..at dahil kami lang ang involve sometimes masaya ang lakad namin, minsan naman nauuwi sa away. Hehe! But looking back those times, we both are thankful kasi through it, our love grows more stronger.. those times never failed to develop and strengthen our commitment, intimacy, and love for each other. And sometimes at the end of the day, we even wondered how everything we planned went so smoothly. We are happy and blessed that God used some people to help us especially on our needs. Mama Lenny bought us the wedding ring, Papa Romy (Rai’s dad) bought us the wedding cake, close friends designed our invitation, will sing and play the keyboard for us on our wedding day, ninang and ninong who counseled us, bought us the giveaways, and even gave us funds.. talagang sobra sobra ang blessings na binigay sa amin ni Lord to the extent na sa we will spend our honeymoon/vacation in Laguna. Yeey!

Our wedding will just show God’s love, blessings, goodness, faithfulness and even His perfect plan for Rai and Me.

Update is till here muna.. hehe! dahil super busy na rin kami ni Rai sa ngayon.. We will post our pics here even sa prenuptial pictorial namin, which we both enjoyed a lot.

♥ The Couple

    Rai Abary
    Quing Perpetua


    He was looking for God’s gift.
    She was waiting for God’s will.
    Both believe that true love waits.
    Both hoped.

    When boy meets girl, friendship started then. They shared thoughts, stories, and even problems they face everyday. The tiny bond of friendship blossoms deeper and deeper as each day passed by. He confided to her, she leaned on him. Both shared the same passion and that is to serve God and to walk intimately with God. He prayed for her. She prayed for him. An ordinary friend turned into more special - prayer partner.

    More talks, more laughs, more cries, more songs, more poems, more thoughts, more prayers, more time have been spent, that love began to grow and bind them.

    May 17, 2007, God, in His own perfect way and time, allowed us to enjoy the gift of love.

    Until now, God never fails to guide us. Like any ordinary relationship, we fight - get jealous, get mad, misunderstand and even hurt each other. As an individual, we need to adjust, take risks and sacrifices. "It is painful". Yet, true love is still worth it all. We know that everyday, we face challenges, and we need to fight, defend and protect the love that we have. It may tear us, cost our life, yet we do not fear because GOD is the center of our faith.
    God is our strong foundation, our beginning and our end.

    When God made Rai, He was thinking of Quing.
