Today, I’ve been married for nine years. Through those nine years, I’ve had four different jobs, four different addresses, three kids, one operation; I can go on forever.

But despite those changes, there are a couple of things that I know have remained the same. First, I know that my love for her is there and is stronger than what it was before. Second, I still feel a sense of emptiness when she is not in the same room. Third, I still tell her how much I love her on a daily basis because I just can’t not say it and lastly she has been the reason why home is.

One other thing that I’ve observed in these past nine years, is that God has never ceased to amaze me with this marriage. How He’s blessed, challenged and nurtured our relationship with each other through thick and thicker.

It is my wish that as we go through the next nine years, that I be more like Christ.

I wish to be a better husband, I wish I could show my wife what it really means for me to love just as how Christ intends it.

For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her (Ephesians 5:25 NLT)

I wish to be a better father to my beautiful kids. I want to let them know how precious they are to me and teach them the significance and value of life. Even more so when they live a life that is pleasing before God. Teach them how to love above all.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)

Thank you Marchesa Jane Fabila for loving me and sacrificing it even more for our our kids even at the cost of forsaking your career. I am blessed because of you. Thank you for being a mom, wife, friend and lover.

I love you. Happy 9th anniversary mahal.
