My husband and I were both excited when we got the invitation to K By Cunanan’s Thanksgiving Dinner. It’s their annual event where they invite clients within the past year, as well as suppliers and friends in the wedding and events industry.

#FidelSonjiaForever: The Proposal

IMG_6083On May 31, 2014, Fidel asked me to marry him. What I thought would be a celebration for Fidel’s dad’s promotion turned out to be a different celebration. Here’s a video made by Parkway Video Production House (Thanks BD and Russell!) to document the whole thing–from him buying flowers, to asking a guy at a salon if he could cut in for a haircut, to him kneeling down on one knee, and my not so flattering “Yes!” Included, are also those people working out during the proposal! Hahahaha! Thank you also to Themes & Motifs for featuring Fidel’s proposal on your latest Inspirations for Weddings magazine issue. Thank you to our dear family and friends for making this such a memorable day for the both of us! To God be all the glory!

Here are a few things we’ve learned, so far, that matter not only now, but in every season of our lives.

Made to Depend

Made to Depend

Too often we hear the words, “God will never give you something you can’t handle.” I have believed that to be true until this Relevant Magazine article shifted my perspective on the matter. Here’s an excerpt from the author, Michael Hidalgo:

When we become aware that life will give us more than we can handle and come to grips with this, we find a promise: God is faithful to meet us in the mess and in the pain.

And when He does, we learn to recognize our constant need to depend on Him. This is why Peter instructs the Church to cast our fears, worries, suffering and pain on God. He reasons we can do this because God cares for us. When life deals us more than we can handle, we can rest in the reality that God can handle it.
