|My husband (Rommel) and I|
The book of Ecclesiastes 9:9 (Message version) tells us, “Relish life with the spouse you love each and everyday of your precarious life. Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange for the hard work of staying alive. Make the most of each one!” This was one of the verses in this morning’s Sunday message. It blessed me so much to hear such heart warming words for a vivacious family life.
My heart agreed with every anointed words from the messenger of God about a wonderful family God founded. He desires a husband and a wife to share together with each other the wonderful gift of love from God and that He wanted this kind of love to be manifested upon the lives of every married couple.

Each day is precious! God made each day a miraculous and gracious day for everyone! Everyday is an opportunity God-given and a chance for each one of us to be a precious instrument to share the good news of God’s kingdom. In particular, the Lord is not only using singles for this certain task but also available married couple. The Lord is desirous for a husband and a wife to be an image that manifest for a model of intact relationship founded with love that will carry on the responsibility of molding spiritual values to their siblings.
But first thing first is that both the husband and the wife must have an in tune relationship with each other . . . time for each other . . . patience and understanding with each other’s weaknesses and flaws! For each weakness, a husband should be a strength for her to stand still and for the flaws, a husband should be with the wife to understand with patience and be her counselor at all times. It should be a vis a vis program of responsibility and accountability for each other.

While there is still time . . . show the best service for each one. Have an intimate talk with each other and spend sometime sharing moments of care and love with each other and with the siblings. Our days are numbered. We don’t wait till it would be too late to do such precious citation for each one. Let us enjoy precious time together. Offer sweet words and talk things over with a calm spirit. One can never paint a blissful day by using just one color . . . It’s should always be a multi-color combination to form a rainbow!
I wish for my family to be together. And because of this, I would be joining with my husband soon, and of course with the kids in a far land where he had been working since 2001. It took me sometime to decide whether or not to join him there. But I thought that we are not growing younger though . . . He also wish to see my younger son growing with him. He hadn’t been able to see our older girl grew and follow on with her during her very critical years until now that she’s 16 and soon to graduate from high school. My husband felt a little disappointed with not being a full father to her daughter.

Though we talked online often times but it matters when you are physically present and fell the emotional attachment of advising, talking to them, bonding with them and sharing moments together during family time. Listening to them when they’re sharing some good news from school or in times when they’re not feeling good (health wise) . . . in times when they are hospitalized.
It pays to enjoy the presence of your husband and wife along with the kids and share with each other with everything for the day and to take time to bond together. Whenever we fail in dealing with our partner the first time . . . with our negative attitudes, with misunderstanding, with unmeet responsibility and priority, and some things that trigger anger, doubt and conflict, we have to rekindle the good times together.
How are we going to do this? We need to have a personal evaluation on how we can improve our performances and attitudes in those things and situation in life. We can reschedule or do the things we failed the first time and attend to it wiser than the last time we did it. In the book of Lamentations 3:40 (Message version) it says, “Let’s take a good look at the way we’re living and reorder our lives under God.”
