It was long ago when I used to work on day shift and cuddle my boys at night. So, before we go to bed, they asked me to read our story book. Kuya opened the story book and pick a story. And Kuya would request me to start the story “Once upon a time…”, and giggled as I started to read our story book, book title “Bible stories”, children version. Oh, kids, or shall I be specific, boys, who would have thought they’d come out like this?

One of the Stories Told

I want to go melodramatic today and start with a lyrics of the song that goes:

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son”

Whala! Unfortunately, I have nothing more to say. Honestly? Yes, the verse already says it all!

You see, we all fall in love. Or say we loved all our lives, our selves, family, friends, relatives and even explored to love someone who may mean the world to us, -our behalf and children. In today’s world, well, so much has been said and done.

We romanticize love, we explore and implore to know the best and worst of the object of our affection. Even tried to accept the very flaws and come to live with it in time. However, it all ends up on how much you know about the person that you are willing to accept the flaws embedded on this being? Then on the slightest act of betrayal, just about in any form: trust, loyalty, fidelity, it all swiped out clean like nothing had even happened between you two. This is just how our society has become, broken marriages through separation, divorce and annulment. On television, we see couples of broke up after 10-20yrs tigeth3, only to find out the husband was dazzled by a young lady and totally captivated his heart and break up with his wife, vice versa. I mean, for all the troubles they went through all those years, the strength of their love would have been able to… but unfortunately, it isn’t so. On the slightest test of faith in love, succumbs to temptation and embrace it. How folly? Well, even to this age I can’t say because there are still years to for me to overcome, while I already conquered almost a decade now (yey! Truly single) but there are still years to look forward! Others, yes, not may not end up broken marriages but ends up with a broken bone or two?! Or, ending up having several wives or husbands, like Filipino seafarer’s tag “every port, report” (having wives on every port, so they report every time they dock). Then I will be called “JUDGMENTAL” when I’m just really merely stating facts based on true stories of people I know who cried their hearts out. One friend I see through, accompanying her on her court hearings “begging” for financial support while committing adultery, -bearing a bastard.

The Greatest Love Story Ever Told

Why wouldn’t it be so? Me? I wouldn’t easily give up my son for the anything else, worst my follies. God even planned it, orchestrated it all for it to happen. Even witness His son has to endure all the humiliation, trouble when He could just let a lightning struck at the very act of insolence or disrespect. But no, He did not. And to think Jesus is the LORD. While us, the slightest sacrifice we had to endure for our loved one, fret and whine our hearts out to God asking “why me?”, wow, the drama we all acted on! And still have the guts to blame it all to God when it was all on us because “WE CHOOSE” – so called FREE WILL, we chose what we have become, it wasn’t God’s choice to begin with!

Our LOVE to GOD’s LOVE? Oh no! I think I already made a clear description, needless to point it out again! Between HELL and SALVATION, everything is already there except our DECISION. To make HELL an ETERNAL ABODE or HEAVEN! I mean God already reached out, we have to make an effort on reaching out too! Its not a unilateral relationship, we must do our part and that’s for us to decide where we wanna go! Everything is already laid, choose:  ETERNAL LOVE OR ETERNAL DAMNATION.

I didn’t wake on the wrong side of the bed this time, the title kept on flashing on my head since weekend. And the only way its gone tonight is writing it. Thank u for dropping by, God bless!

You are indeed right to that po.. I am really amazed that you have sharing such stories to your kiddos. It is really good for them to know at an early age. Knowing God's love and above all, knowing what He had sacrificed for us to be saved.☺️

Good day and God bless you..😇

My mom says love is temporary. Only love for our offspring and for god can be permanent. I think it's true. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It was a good read.
