Mark & She Wedding

Finally, its the Mark and She wedding after more than a year of planning and rescheduling their wedding date to make sure that special visitors and friends will be able to join them in this celebration. 

But 3 days before the wedding, typhoon Glenda hit the southern Luzon and 90% of the affected area has no power. But the aftermath of the typhoon did not make any impact on their preparations :)

Early morning of July 19th, we drove going to Balai Taal in Tagaytay, this is their preparation and reception venue. We need to be early because Gabbie will one of the flower girls. 

Upon arriving in Balai Taal, it is drizzling and a bit foggy but we are stunned by the view of Taal Lake.  We picked up Edu and Aldrin in Starbucks Tagaytay before we go Calaruega Church for the wedding ceremony.

A Wife’s Prayer

Lord, help me to be a good wife. I fully realize that I don’t have what it takes to be one without Your help. Take my selfishness, impatience, and irritability and turn them into kindness, long-suffering, and the willingness to bear all things.

Take my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, rude assumptions, and self-protective stance, and make me patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, and self-controlled.

Take the hardness of my heart and break down the walls with Your battering ram of revelation. Give me a new heart and work in me Your love, peace, and joy (Galatians 5:22-23). I am not able to rise above who I am at this moment. Only you can transform me.
