Thank you for all the love, mami Terry and mami Nida. Ang saya mag-time travel back to the days when Jikjik was so busy being the most unruly bunso in the world, and I being the 'pacifier baby' 👶 and to take a sneak preview of motherhood by hearing some wonderful advice from you.
May God honor everything that you have sacrificed out of mother's love, and bless you with eternal joy in your hearts. We love you!
Thank you, @loquisphofficial for opening your place where we can create good memories together and celebrate love. We surely had a wonderful time tonight! Happy mom's day too to Ninang Connie, the awesome mamshie of the Loquinarios.
Because a marriage between two people is a marriage between two families 💑 We are grateful to the Lord for having been deeply loved by our parents & families from the time we were born, to this time when we are about to enter into marriage, and eventually build our own family. We love you. ❤ Thank you for watering a million seeds of love within us. We've learned to love because you first loved us. Praises, glory, and thanksgiving to our Lord, our ultimate source of love!
What does Jesus' #resurrection mean to me?
Growing up in #Sunday school, and in an #evangelical community, I've been taught a lot of things about his resurrection--it means that #Jesus is alive, he did not remain dead after being crucified on the #cross; that his sacrifice was indeed accepted, justified by the Father; that he conquered death which is the penalty of our sins; that he ascended into heaven, seated at the right hand of God the Father and will come again to judge the living and the dead; that it is an assurance or claim for all #Christians that we are not worshiping a dead king; and many more. These have been widely taught among Christians so much so that the resurrection became a truth to which we must all agree, we must all accept. It is also the kind of truth that dictates how we should look at the future.
As I walk through my faith journey, I realized that Jesus' resurrection could mean a lot more to one's life than what we've been taught in Sunday school, or in #EasterSunday sermons. I have learned that his resurrection means immortalizing his life in me in the here and now, believing and practicing his teachings, perpetually seeking his views and ways around things or issues, hoping that his causes contain the answers in restoring our relationship with God and with one another, and believing that all these would impact our lives and this world eternally. Perhaps, it's one way of saying that a person, even after dying, lives on forever.
This way, I can say that Jesus has resurrected, that he is a risen lord in my heart, and that his life, his selfless and inclusive #love manifested through his death on the cross are enough to guide me in my life here on earth, enough to answer some of my questions, enough to keep me hoping and loving.
This stance helps me to be grounded, to center my #faith on what Jesus did, taught, and lived for throughout his life here on earth. And this would not cause me to be shaken or affected if ever in the days to come, this world would debunk the great story of resurrection and say that Jesus has not risen from the dead--just as how we discovered that the earth is round and not flat.
