Light it Up- it's a wedding countdown!

·When I started this blog 9 years ago, I originally wanted it to become a money making blog. I was alone, depressed and bored when I came to New York. Somebody introduced me to blog for money and so I thought why not try it. I was told to keep on writing about random things and monetize the posts. I started earning but eventually random writings became my personal reflection about God's plan for me. I stopped receiving paid posts and decided to make this blog as my online journal of my personal journey as a Christian.

  Why Penlighted? Penlight symbolizes my love for healthcare and attending to sick people. Lighted pen symbolizes the ideas and reflections that came to light while I was writing.

  My personal goal is to become a reflection of God's love. To let my light shine before others so they may glorify God through my simple good deeds and through serving other people.

    Matthew 5:16 became my personal guide of how I wanted to live my life.

    I was amazed and grateful to see that this verse can be our gospel reading for our wedding. I take this as a verse that we can reflect upon our life mission. Marriage is not just a commitment that you make with each other but also a life purpose. Marriage will bind two lights to make it brighter and radiate stronger to reach more darker souls.

Matthew (5:13-16)

Jesus said to his disciples:
“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lamp stand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”

I pray through the intercession of the Blessed Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Jude, and Saint Therese...that we will have a successful wedding this Sunday.

I pray for protection through the help of St. Michael the Archangel...

I ask the intercession of St. Claire, that we may have an amazing warm weather this Sunday.


05 for GOD'S GRACE.

May 08, 2016 is also mother's day.
I can't wait to offer my flowers to Mama Mary on our day.

All glory and honor is Yours, Lord.

We're engaged!

I have always wondered why women cover their face or mouth with their hand during a proposal. I did it when I saw him on one bent knee when we were in Paris. I consciously fought my hand to go to my face but I had to because I was already bawling but I wanted to see him so instead of covering my eyes I just covered my mouth.


We saw this picture before we went to Paris and we joked about making sure that he will not tie his shoelace near the Eiffel Tower.

Shoelace! Is this a joke? Are you serious? But you're sick and we almost canceled this tour? You planned for this? When did you decide? OMG you're serious!

Those were my thoughts in the exact same order.

Ritchie booked a photography tour on August 19, 2015 for us to see the most common tourist sites of Paris to take pictures and have our pictures taken. It was the most reasonable thing to do because according to him, he knows how much I would love to have good pictures from Paris.

The night before the tour, he wasn't feeling really well so I suggested for us to cancel it. I wanted him to rest because I don't want him to be sick during the entire 3 weeks trip. He said that we can't cancel the tour anymore, so he just took a lot of medicines and drank a lot of tea.

The photography tour lasted for 3 hours and I was already complaining because we were walking around Paris for that long under the heat of the sun.  The photographer that he hired took a lot of pictures of us doing our own thing. It was like a dream come true! We have a paparazzi following us and taking our moments together. I have always wished that somebody will secretly take a snap of our sweetest moments together because I would really want to preserve them.

Like during those multiple times when he carried me because I was already tired of walking with my heels on. Those times when he would sing or dance to make me laugh. Those days when I get a headache or when my muscles are stiff so he will give me a massage. Those days when he will carry whatever I am carrying even if it is my shoulder bag. When he will give me kisses on my forehead just because... I am so thankful that we had a paparazzi that day! He insisted that we slow dance near the Louvre Museum while the 2 musicians were playing. I said no because it was embarassing but he dragged me. It's one of the sweetest moments in my life. =D

I can't wait for us to have a church wedding. I can't wait to marry this amazing person that God gave me to share my life with.

*Thank you bheng for giving me this experience. I love you!
