The Ship of my Life :)




Hello there! Today I missed my seafarer husband, the ship of my life. I would like to introduce my husband.  He is too far from us right now but he is always in my heart!
My lovely husband
My love and dearly husband is Mr. Lemuel Sanchez.  He is 28 years old. I met him during our Things to Come Mission Workers Annual Conference 2008 in Ozamis City. Ozamis City is one of the nicest provinces in Mindanao.
 I love the environment, the fresh air, fresh vegetables, fresh fish, fruits and some of beaches there!

My husband loves sports too like me. He really loves basketball! He'd be weak without basketball, that's how addicted he is! And his favorite color is blue and you know what that's my favorite color also...hehe! He was a working student also.. I started to have a crush on him because of his ability in basketball. oh yeah! that's right. But before that, I prayed to God that I hope God will give me a Christian boyfriend that would also be my lifetime partner :) I was too young that time when I prayed and asked God for a lifetime partner hahahah!

But anyways God answered my prayer quickly! haha Yes! very quick! hehe! but he didn't become my husband hehe. It was another guy, a basketball player also from davao. Because my husband has a gf that time. But we're friends na, we were texting and were friends and binigyan niya ako ng picture nya at binigyan ko din sya,wala lang just remembrance... Until we broke up my ex.boyfriend. 

It was in 2010 when my husband  went here in Manila for his OJT. Nakakatawa pa kasi when I had a boyfriend, naputol ang communication namin. Then noong nagbreak kami ng ex bf ku after mga 5 months bigla syang nagtext sa akin kasi nandito daw xa sa manila at naghahanap sya ng masimbahan. Then, nagreply ako at nagsimba sila with his 2 classmates. Sunday morning nagkita kami sa litex, and pangalawa naming pagkikita. Until we became friends and close friends because nag eenjoy sya sa ministry sa youth sa churh namin kasama ang mga pinsan nya na mga seafarers din. 

Hanggang niligawan nya ako at sinagot ko sya noong October 5, 2010. Hindi naging madali ang relasyon namin noon kasi ayaw ng pamilya nya sa akin kasi ako ay Praise and Worship (to those who don't know, it's a way of worship sa church. It's been a long-time debate sa church namin - to worship either traditionally or worship with complete accompaniment and drums). Ang kanyang pamilya ay conservative and solemn ang way of worship. Pero pinaglaban nya ako sa kanyang pamilya hanggang natanggap ako :) (aw, love conquers all! ♥)

During our prenup
Our relationship became stronger and an inspiration. My seafarer husband is like a ship for me of course because of the status of his work. Many storms and winds that came (and will come) in his journey there but he has a captain that's always there for him to protect him and guide him and that is God. And I'm always here as his anchor to love him, hold him, to pray him,  to comfort him and encourage him, if there is a sea that surrounds him, our home will always be the safe dry land he can come back to anytime.
    
So shout out to all single ladies and gents out there! Always pray for your love life/ lifetime partner. Don't harsh to have a bf/husband, wait for the right time. Let God work on it and God will give you the best.


"If my life was a ship, you would be the anchor that holds me in place and the sails which take me on a beautiful journey, i love you". 
-Lemuel Sanchez (He posted it on his Facebook last July 6, 2015)

  1. You're both lucky to have each other.. God should always be at the center of your relationship because when both of you fail to do what makes each other happy, God will hold your hands and will bring you together. :) God bless you and your beautiful family. :)

  4. When we make our marriage our highest priority, no enemies, will or imagined, can come between us - unknown. Keep the love alive! <3

  6. Ang cute ng story nyo! Bakit naman ayaw nila sa praise and worship? Kung sabagay, my family is conservative too. I'm the only Born Again Christian (for now).

  10. That's a very sound advice, Melissa :) Singles should really pray for their future spouse so that they will not be misled or deceived by their feelings and emotions.

  16. Well at least it was a worthy issue to tackle - worship. At the end of the day, it's really not about the method but who we're worshiping. As A.W. Tozer said, "Wrong worship is not a matter of the wrong method, but of the wrong god."

    Glad it all worked out for you. After all, you share the same faith in the living God.

  20. it must be really difficult to be away from your husband for long periods of time, but the time apart is a necessary sacrifice for your family's future. and it is true, absence does make the heart grow fonder!
