Paint the Sky

Since I was little boy, I always dream of going to the US maybe because I had a glimpse of it in movies and I have relatives there who I look up to. As years pass by, it became more clear to me that it’s not going to happen. Well, judging by the looks of our family’s situation. At a very young age, I need to work to send me to school. I always look at the sky and look for my fave stars and closed eyes “one day I will go there”. I don’t know how but yes I will be in the US.

The wish/ prayer was forgotten since I got too busy with work and stuff. I just pray and say yeah let’s just throw it there that one day I will go there. I’m contended with what God is giving me naman.

 

It  will be suntok sa buwan if I will pray for that too. I’m contented and I’m happy with what I have. I’m just writing to the air and tryna paint the sky.

 

But God has different plans. He had way better plans.

It was 2016 when God told me that your contentment is good but it doesn’t mean you’ll not boldly ask (Matthew 7:7) .

 

So I asked God for a wife and He gave me not a wife but a beautiful,smart,God-fearing, sungit (love you babe) and Uber thoughtful wife 🙂

 

Again, Lord I’m satisfied. I’m ok. I couldn’t ask for more. But wait there’s more.

I prayed for Northern Lights. Aurora Borealis. God said asked for the best. Ok, this is something that is Suntok sa buwan na naman. But God asked me “Jek, who owns the stars? And the moon? ” .. So you can suntok sa buwan non-stop its mine anyways.

My situation tells me that it’s not possible. But that’s not what my faith is telling me. The “Walk by faith not by sight” will be useless.

God is super, God is omniscient– The only limitation to your dreams is you.

 

So I claimed it. And here you go sharing our pictures in Chena Hot Springs Alaska. Plus the video of our Honeymoon Episode 3-Alaska!

 

 

Enjoy.

We had a quick rendezvous around the neighborhood and had a great time discovering gift shops and mini cafe shops.

Santa’s house in North Pole. The Photo wall behind us is made of ice! Trivia: it cost us $50 to get there via taxi and another $50 to go back to our hotel. There is no public transpo in Alaska- you have to call for a taxi

This supposed to be a park with benches and side walks. But when we visited it was all covered with snow.

The beautiful Auroras. That’s our tent–if you feel cold you can go inside and have free hot choco and hot noodles.
