So tonight we celebrated 65 years of life for my father. I wish Kuya RC, Ate BG, and X were with us. I also wish Kuya Glen could be here, but God has him and his family in the Philippines for his purposes at this time. I’m really thankful to God for my father for a lot of different reasons. Let me list a few.
- He has stayed married to my mom and loving and caring for her.
- He has led our family.
- He has provided our needs.
- He has protected us.
- He has taught us Christ.
- He has been an example of love for Christ and devotion to Christ’s church.
- He has supported me, encouraged me, strengthened me, shown compassion to me, and guided me these past 27 years.
Here’s mom and dad.
Here’s my father and my son.
Dad and Niko (my brother Dennis’ son). He’s 16 years old and a junior in high school.
Here’s a blurry family picture. (from right to left: Tita Angela, Niko, Ate Nina, Danika, Kuya Dennis, Elijah, Dad, Mom, Frances, me, Jenny, and Yek).
I’m really thankful for my family and count it an honor and privilege to know them, be served by them, serve them, and serve alongside of them. I pray that God continues to grow our family in Christ-centeredness, and I pray that we will make a lot of memories that we will celebrate in eternity. To God alone be glory.
