Let me start with greeting all dads a happy father’s day once again! Over the past few weeks I have seen so many father’s day gifts suggestions online and I’ve planned a few surprises for Dane already but funny, I didn’t turn out as I wanted it to be, haha! But it was still a fun-filled father’s day. 🙂
Saturday evening, I was determined to sleep and wake up early so I can create a short video presentation for Dane for his 2nd father’s day. I readied my alarm at 4am so I can do my sort of “surprise”. So what happened was, I slept at 12 midnight! And not only that – alas, I did not hear my phone ring at all!!! That is so cool! My body never cooperated to my plans! lol. So I woke up at 6:00 am and that is very late already for a Sunday preparation to go to church for worship service, etc. I had no choice but to set aside that video and wait for another year to do it, haha (I couldn’t do it during weekdays because I’m quite occupied already). I just made a short photo greeting on Facebook and greeted Dane and all my friends, relatives and fathers (biological and spiritual), and off I readied for our Sunday School.
During our church worship service, we people recognized the fathers in our church. They were called to sit in front and we prayed for them. They played these really very nice video clips (I saw these already but I still cried when I saw again being played in the church), they’re really nice and it touched me, I really remembered my father. For those who haven’t seen it yet, here it is ( still cry no matter how many times I watch it!):
They also played another clip to remind us that God is the greatest father of all. I’m was very thankful that they played this right after the first clip, it’s such a great relief!

After worship service, we had a quick lunch and practice so we won’t be late for the Cluster 1 women’s fellowship. Cluster 1 women’s fellowship is a gathering for moms/wives together from the churches in Quezon City, Caloocan and Montalban, Rizal. The fellowship is done every 3 months. Last Sunday’s them was about “The Beauty of a Godly Woman of Faith” and our speaker shared about how God’s perfect creation was made imperfect because of the sin we’ve inherited from Adam and Eve but how we’re still made perfect through the death of Christ on the cross for all our sins. Women’s fellowships are simple but very fun and nice. It always feels great to see other mother’s (older and younger moms) get together.

Last Sunday, we had solo, duet and trio contests, it was nice seeing moms offer their songs to worship God. Me and my friends Melody and Melisa joined for the trio contest. We sang “It is well with my soul”, written by Horatio Spafford. This very nice song to remind us to stay calm in spite of every circumstances that life may bring. The only thing is, they thought were done singing so they clapped already and I burst out laughing really loud, we were unable to finish our song! haha! It was really funny for me, I can’t help but share the video here as well! hahaha!
Ang pinakaEPIC na trio sa buong buhay ko. Haha. Pasensya na mga niiing, nasira ko yung trio natin. Di ko na mapigilan, baka mautot ako e. Hahaha. Masaya ako sa naging outcome, napatawa natin sila, nanalo pa tau!

Lastly, we went home and had dinner together. I asked my sister, Beb to buy a cake for Dane and of course, since it’s father’s day, there was no more dedication cake in Red Ribbon!
Our father’s day was simple, tiresome and fun-filled! How did you celebrate the father’s day? I’d love to hear from you. 😉
