With Faith and Prayers

An excerpt from Chicken Soup for the Bride's Soul, Chapter 4.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick; but when dreams come true at last, there is life and joy. Proverbs 13:12
Snowy white gown, glass slippers and a prince charming are my ultimate fantasies. I’m no different with other little girls, when I dream, I dream of fairytale coming true. Now I’m so near my fairytale ending but challenges keep on popping up like an evil Step Mother. But I’ve had enough pessimism. I’m done with thinking of negative thoughts for the entire year!
Just to share some updates, J and I are slowly planning our wedding. Sometimes it’s a big headache but we’re good at running away from it. We’re good at doing something else than think of the wedding preparations! We wouldn’t have this setback if we would continue to just having a court wedding. Quick, plain and simple. Our original plan was a court wedding in the US for around 20 guests. Then after around two years, go back to the Philippines for a church wedding with more of our family and friends. But it seems like God is moving us in another direction and now everybody wants us to have a Catholic wedding first, especially J’s Dad. We, J and I, actually thought about it, but it seems like a waste of money if you do a church wedding in the US. But since J’s family has a lot of friends in the church, it seems like we might be able to do it with less or no cost at all! Let’s just say that everything is still under “negotiations.” But hopefully, fingers crossed, even toes crossed, we would be able to be wed under God’s blessings. We are now asking for all of you, to help us pray for this desire that we have. We are keeping our faith up and leaving everything in prayers. :)
