The Absence

2 Chronicles 32:30-31

He succeeded in everything he undertook. But when envoys were sent by the rulers of Babylon to ask him about the miraculous sign that had occurred in the land, God left him to test him and to know everything that was in his heart.

 
Hezekiah had great honor all his life. He was faithful in serving God and no matter the tests to his faith, he stood out, clung to the Lord and depended on Him for all his life. Although there was a time that he became proud that his heart grew numb of the goodness shown to him, Hezekiah repented before God and led the people of Judah to the right path. But there was a time when God did not manifest His presence to Hezekiah. It was the time when envoys and rulers of Babylon asked him about the good things done to his kingdom by the Lord. The Scripture says that God tested Him to see what was in his heart.
 
Have you experienced that point in your life that after all the success and overflowing warmth of love God has given you, you will suddenly feel that you’re on your own? Well, that is the time that God tests you. That is the time to test yourself as well. When you do not feel God beside you, when you feel devoid of the power as a child of God, do you still stand up for God? Do you still believe in Him? Do you remain His ambassador, messenger to the world even when you do not feel His presence at all? God wants to know what’s inside your heart when He subtracts all the power you experience from God. This is the test if you really love your God.
 
Whenever you feel that God seems too distant, do not think that He has abandoned you. He just wants to see if you still fight for Him despite His absence. Do you still trust Him? Do you remain faithful? Will you still tell about His goodness in these times? Well, you better do, because God loves you whether you feel Him or not.

Paul and April

He first noticed her in elementary. Her simplicity and ‘awkwardness’ attracted him most. Despite relationships here and there, Paul confessed, April never left his thoughts. In his mind, she is that interesting girl whose beauty cannot be hidden in simple sleeves. Fifteen years after, he found a way to reconnect with her. Their three-year long distance relationship has proven his undying love for her.

As Paul would say, ‘She’s the only girl who made me a faithful man. I knew this is something great and I must not let her go.’

Dave and Ana

Cheers to these wonderful people. Though it’s been said that nobody’s perfect, we would attest that this couple and their respective families are not just pretty faces but they too have such kind hearts we have never seen before.

To greater and happier times ahead, DaveAna, the Da Costa and the Fatalla families.

Dave and Ana

Heaven is a place in Antipolo 🙂

I can say that this is yet my best experience as a photographer for 2013. The engagement session was shot in a mansion with its own forest, and the couple is not like any other – they are lawyers! And the best part is, they are way too cool to be in the legal profession. Dave and Anna are simply adorable. Behind the nerdy glasses is a couple who giggle like kids and play board games like 9 year olds. What’s even cooler is that they paint the nitty-gritty details of the little characters in their boardgame 🙂
