A Love Letter for Singles :)

I was a bit SHY (shy matalino, shy maganda, shy mayaman! wenk wenk wenk) at first to write a post on LOVE for BALENTAYMS, it just seems so painfully redundant to do so. And honestly, I think I need to hold back on the cheesiness that has corrupted this blog in the past few weeks. So if you are sick of all my mushy posts, please do me a favor and click the X button on your screen. Save yourselves, pleaaaase!!! Hehehe πŸ™‚ But after reading all your honest, heartfelt letters.. I simply had to write a post for all my wonderful readers who took the time to open up to me. So I opened a bag of chocolates to fuel the romance in me! Naks! I’m just as clueless as you guys, but I’ll try my best! So today, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to all the single ladies (and boys, too!). Valentines is always the day for couples to broadcast their lovey-doveyness (and yes, kasama kami dun! SORRY) and sadly, being SINGLE is not equally celebrated on this day. In my opinion, LOVE IS FOR ALL..whether you’re single, taken, or in a complicated relationship..you should be able to celebrate LOVE!
Just like most of you, there was a time when I was happily single and not too excited to mingle. Well-intentioned friends were setting me up with all their eligible bachelor buds, guys were sending me gifts and asking me out. Politely I declined all of their requests. Not because I was a Valentine scrooge or because I thought too highly of myself, it was just not the right time for me. Syempre sa simula, it was so flattering for me. It was like getting an “EXCELLENT” stamp from your teacher when all your other classmates had to settle for the “SATISFACTORY” stamp! For any single girl, this would be a dream scenario. To suddenly feel so in-demand and wanted..it’s such a big ego boost and completely understandable why some girls bask in the glory and attention.  From the outside, it looked like such an enviable position to be in..but truthfully, it wasn’t really a happy place. So, I chose to wait and not to date. It was a decision of self-preservation, to keep myself worthy of the person I would finally choose one day.  It didn’t feel right to be in a relationship “just because” and so I didn’t want to waste my time or any other person’s time as well. Most of the guys who asked me out were quality dudes, real fine gentlemen and I thought I would be doing them a disservice by dating them knowing that it would be headed nowhere. I wanted time to be with me, myself and I.. and most of all, I needed time to be with God. 
Being single, my dear friends, is a true gift. It is an opportunity to align your needs and desires, it’s a time to  define your self-worth, to understand what kind of person you are and the person you want to become, and it is also the perfect time to prep yourself for that person God has set aside for you! If in your singleness, you find fulfillment, security, and peace..then that’s a blessing. But if you find yourself filled with angst, hatred, and riddled with envy towards others..then obviously, being this kind of single is a curse. The same formula goes for those who are in relationships too. It’s always better to choose the first path. 
I remember sitting in a restaurant and listening to Bob Dylan’s To Make You Feel My Love one rainy evening. Instead of feeling sad that I had no one to sing that song to, I actually felt excited!!! My heart leaped knowing that there will be a man professing all these things to me one day! Someone will love me fiercely and bravely too. I claimed it, I asked for that from God. I didn’t care how long it would take..I knew a love like that was worth the wait. This song also reminded me of the kind of love God wants for you and me.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 
                                                                      1 Corinthians 13:4–8
This was the love that intrigued me! This was the kind of love that made me believe in the good that could come my way. After the feelings of hurt, betrayal, and abandonment from my past..I craved for all these promises in the Bible! I didn’t have to look for a boyfriend, I knew that this kind of love was already all around me..I saw it in PEOPLE each and every day. I saw it in my parents, my best friends, my little students, my coworkers, our household help! I was loved and I had an opportunity to give this kind of love back! One thing I appreciated most about my friends and family is that they never made me feel inadequate in my singleness. Instead of pushing me to settle down like any other girl my age, they supported my “waiting” and encouraged me to never settle for “pwede na”. Because of this, I never felt pressured to get hitched just because it was never really forced upon me. I was in such a loving and accepting environment. Swerte talaga ako.

In my blessed singleness, when I was happy and fulfilled on my own, this was the time I re-met my husband-to-be. The time that I was no longer looking for love, love somehow found me. We knew of each other since I was in the first grade. We went to the same small school, had the same circle of friends, hung out at the same canteen..but never ever got the chance to really become chummy-chummy. Just thinking of the many times we passed each other across the hallway, the thousands of flag ceremonies we stood about a meter apart, all those field trips to Nayong Pilipino, CCP, and Luneta on the same school bus..just two regular kids completely oblivious to the beautiful life we would be sharing together in the future. It’s almost as if God was playing with us, keeping us so close together for all those years, causing us to live parallel to each other even if we chose separate paths in life. The last time I saw Patrick was when I was a chubby 12 year old and he was a tiny, awkward 13 year old. In my mom’s own words “Ayyy..Patrick was the cutest and whitest boy! He was the most mabango kid in the whole ICA!” HAHAHA! After 15 years, we RE-MET each other at a friend’s birthday. I remember seeing him again for the first time and telling myself “How come I didn’t get the memo?!?! Since when did Patrick Filart become such a hottie?!?!” I was 50-50. HAPPY that I met a really wonderful guy and BUMMED that I met a really wonderful guy. I wanted to kick myself in the butt, “There goes your brilliant no dating plan, Ms Smarty Pants!”. But I just knew in my heart he was different because after a string of justifiable and convincing NO, NO, NOs to others..saying YES to Patrick seemed like the easiest thing to do! My heart was ready for him. It didn’t feel like a gamble, it felt like a wise investment. Our first date was on Valentine’s Day of 2011. Not only did I get re-acquainted with an old friend, I also got re-acquainted with God through Patrick. My love for Christ was rekindled thanks to Patrick’s influence and encouragement, and that to me is his greatest gift.
So to all my single friends, believe in the kind of love that God has destined for you. It doesn’t have to happen now or tomorrow..it will happen when you are ready for it. If your heart has been broken into a million pieces, God won’t just piece it back together..HE will actually reward you with a brand new heart! A fresh start to love again! πŸ™‚ So this early on, I urge you to pray for the person you will choose to give that new heart to. If you feel numb, jaded, and tired of love..then pray for God to give you that burning desire back. I apologize for ra-ra-ra-ring you all to LOVE, I sound like a loved-up crazy cheerleader! Hahaha! But just as my parents and friends prayed unceasingly for my happiness, never grew tired of giving me words of encouragement, and always managed to make me feel special and loved..I would like to do the same for all of you. I may not know you all personally, but I do wish each of you the joy of finding God’s love πŸ™‚

  2. this post made me cry :’) thanks patty for this, super timing talaga! god bless you and patrick! you deserve to be loved because you have a kind heart:) continue inspiring others! will wait for that perfect gift from God:)

  3. You are undeniably an inspiration. You weaved the words perfectly together. I love that you integrated Biblical principles in your quest for love and even when you found it:-) Thanks for the wonderful thoughts Teacher Patty!

  4. “If your heart has been broken into a million pieces, God won’t just piece it back together..HE will actually reward you with a brand new heart!” <<my favorite part *applause*

    Thank you for this feel-good post ^_^

  5. I cried while reading this. I’m in a situation where I think I’m settling and this is not the kind of relationship that I want nor deserve.

    I’ve experienced my first heartbreak early last year, was utterly depressed (I didn’t know how to deal with it at 20 boo me) for the whole year and before 2011 ended, I met someone new. Now I’m in a relationship with him and deep in my heart I know it’s not what God would want for me.

    I don’t know if I’m free from past hurt by now, but I don’t think I’ve forgiven the one who broke my heart yet. I don’t want to settle, I still don’t know what I should do with this current relationship because I’d like to be fair and give him a chance. I’m so confused. I’ll pray about it, but I hope you could also give me advice, Ms. Patty (Gawin ka raw bang Dra. Love? πŸ˜› as if hindi pa enough yung whole blog post na ito no? :P)

  6. well said Patty… 10 years ago I totally embraced my being single. I spent more time with my family, gave a great deal of importance to my me-time and really just focused on my goals, my dreams and how I can make them all a reality. I was really having a blast. like you, I didn’t feel bummed out that I didn’t had a Valentine’s date..it was more like I wasn’t ready to have one yet..not until I met Paul 9 years ago and I totally agree with you when you said “saying YES was the easiest thing to do”. I believe when it’s really meant to be it will go oh-so-smoothly. it has been 9 years since Paul and I started dating and we’ve been married for 2 years still I get so giddy and kilig over the littlest things like going out on impromptu lunch dates or the tiny surprises that he would do on special occasions. guess that’s what you’d call true love <3

  7. i dont know u personally, but my spirit’s moved as i read this post. I just came home from a movie date with friends (since i am single, i just watched THE VOW with my girl pals) ..after falling inlove with Leo and Paige’s love story in the movie, i came across this blog…then i find myself praying for God to bless me the way He blessed your lovelife πŸ™‚

  8. Your blog is really inspiring. I especially loved this line, “If your heart has been broken into a million pieces, God won’t just piece it back together..HE will actually reward you with a brand new heart! A fresh start to love again.” that it got me teary-eyed.

  9. You’re always an inspiration Patty! Yes, my heart’s been bruised & battered, I am in no position to welcome love right now. But I know in God’s perfect time, I will be able to love someone the way I wanted to be loved. You’re overwhelmed with love it radiates not only in your pictures but in your blogs as well. God bless you both! πŸ™‚

  10. you’re really one awesome blogger. i was inspired to enjoy my 25 years of singleness (yes, im an NBSB. It’s been really hard since almost all of my friends have their boyfriend/girlfriend, and I’m starting to feel really lonely and frustrated, that I wanted to have my own special someone. And then I keep asking myself if there is something wrong with me. But after reading your post (perfect timing for a post Valentine reflection), I realized that I should enjoy my status right now to do all I want and pursue my dreams, and start an intimate relationship with God. Someday I want to get married and start my own family. And like you said on your blog, I’ll also claim it. I know He’ll give me my deepest desire πŸ™‚

    Thanks Patty for these post :))

  11. Hi Patty!
    Thank you for your post, I always drop by your blog everyday checking for new posts ever since I was in college πŸ™‚ I love the song To Make You Feel My Love! Janet Devlin’s cover got me hooked on it (she’s a really sweet girl, try to watch her version on YT as well if you haven’t πŸ˜€ ). I really don’t know what to say but I just felt like I need to comment on this post.. Is it not a good thing to not ask God and pray for the One? All the while I just think that he’ll come when he comes and when God will decide for the right time so I really don’t pray for my soon to be the One. I’m not that eager to be in a relationship right now, I recently just got hurt.. and all I wanted now is to be happy, negative emotions be forgotten. It’s about time I start specifically praying for God for my The One even if he’ll arrive 323423 years from now as long as he is The One πŸ™‚

    Thanks again πŸ™‚

  12. Hi patty!! reading this post was like reading my own love story. also got reacquianted with a classmate from first grade to fourth yr HS , became a born again christian through him and now happily married for 14 years.

  13. a story giving truth to this:
    “Place your heart in the hands of God and He will place it in the hands of a man who He believes deserves it.”

  14. Just having my morning coffee reading your post then naiyak ako dito:

    “If your heart has been broken into a million pieces, God won’t just piece it back together..HE will actually reward you with a brand new heart!”

    Thanks Patty!

  15. you really made me cry ms. patty!!!you are an inspiration.I’m single but I am in no position to welcome love right now coz i’m afraid masaktan ako ulit.I know GOD is with me always and darating din un true love ko.:)>>>she<<<

  16. Thanks so much Patty. Im mending a broken heart for such a hasty decision that i made just to be in a relationship. This speaks to me personally.

  17. Now, I’m inspired to love again. I’ve been praying for “someone who will love me fiercely and bravely too”. I know God will lead me to him someday, when I’m ready for a “new heart”.

    Thank you so much Patty! *sniff*

  18. This is such an inspirational post. I was single for the longest time and felt the pressure from other people and from myself in finding the one. I felt like I was impatient for him to finally come. And then “he” came, well he was just there all along. I’ve known him for years and it was really in God’s time that everything will be in order, according to his plans. I’m in my happiest now and I can’t wait to start our lives together. Just keep the faith!

    Patty, you’re the new-age woman, smart,down to earth, knows how to have fun and God-fearing πŸ™‚

  19. Wow! I love this post, this motivates me more to bask in my singleness and be a better person. πŸ™‚ I agree with what you said “it’s a time to define your self-worth, to understand what kind of person you are and the person you want to become, and it is also the perfect time to prep yourself for that person God has set aside for you” πŸ™‚

  20. hi patty! knw wat, i am one of ur fan…eversince “breakfast” show pa. super like ur simplicity…now q lng nakita na my blogpost k pla. thnx to our head, Mam Nur for sharing ths to my facebook account. sobrang exited aq pg nkkita kta sa tv. heheh…ur like an idol…d best tong blog mu for singles! i am 25 yrs old now and NBSB, as wat dey say it….hahah…der r tyms i fil so alone, curious and dmtng sa point awa n sa sarili q. i have all those questions n parang babae ba a? am i born to be so alone..up to now, der r sleepless nyts..i have liked someone so much before, but nauwi lng sa broken pieces. cgro nga, i have shortcomings, i am not perfect, pro now dat i read ur blog…i came to think na mybe it will take a great man to accept the real me. kung sino man xa..iicpn q nlng na “mas masarap maghintay pg mganda ang inaantay”…der r stil some questions in my mind…pro, i am really hoping for the best answer in the near future….=)) tnx patty! ur d best!

  21. This post makes me question if what i have is real love, and I feel like I don’t. I feel like I deserve more, and to feel the way you feel whether you were single or not. Thanks.

  22. are you talking to me Patty???

    you made me tear up. this is really touching. what a way to assure me that yes, my prayer will soon be answered – that He gives me a guy that will “come” from Him – somebody who will make me a better person and I will as well make him a better person. I know God is just preparing both of us for that BIG meetup when we will know that we are who God wants to be together forever.

  23. Hi Miss Patty,
    aaw.. sobrang nakarelate ako dito.. ssoo mee.. ang pinagkaiba lang di pa dumdating ung destined ni God pra saken :))pero I keep on praying kasi I know dadating rin ung right and destined na guy ni God para saken.. :)) super thanks for the pots..

  24. love this! super kilig and very inspiring. iba tlga when God writes your love story. i can relate. may your life, also your life as wife to patrick, continue to encourage, inspire and bless many. πŸ™‚

  25. Well said, Patty. Thanks for posting this. πŸ™‚ It actually reminded me of a book (more like a pamphlet really, since it’s so short) that a friend recently shared with me called “Oh my God, I’m still single” by Rissa Singson-Kawpeng. Every single gal needs to read your post and this book!

  26. Hayyy..this is just what i needed to read..Thanks for posting this Patty.It’s very heartwarming to be reassured that love is still possible after experiencing pain and heartaches.I’ll be sleeping tonight feeling hopeful. πŸ™‚

  27. Ms.Patty this is such an inspiring post. I haven’t been in a relationship (and I’m 24) but just like you, my family didn’t make me feel inadequate.

    Thanks again and keep on blogging!
    You’re one of the inspiring bloggers I’ve known in the blogosphere..hehe πŸ˜€

  28. such a heart-warming post i could read this forever. It’s really true that God has prepared a beautiful and perfect love story for his children. I know that God is still busy writing my Love Story, so just keep on waitin’ charlzy!!! hehehe:)
    Thanks for this wonderful post teacher Patty keep on inspiring others!
    This post is enough to wake up each morning and start my day with a hopeful heart:)

  29. thank you patty for a very inspiring post.
    you are indeed in love with a pure heart.
    i also hope to find that one true love destined for me.

  30. Thank you Patty for this post. It’s like you’re speaking directly to me πŸ™‚ Can’t help but cry upon reading it….

  31. This is so inspiring Patty. I got teary eyed reading this over and over again. I am a single mom and this story really moved me. If only I took time and listened to my parents, things will be different. Although I never regret that I get to be rewarded by a wonderful gift from God. I pray for your togetherness and may your relationship continue to blossom and inspire many people. Thanks Patty.

  32. “If your heart has been broken into a million pieces, God won’t just piece it back together..HE will actually reward you with a brand new heart! A fresh start to love again! :)” I can attest to this Patty. This is exactly what happened some 3 years ago. I recall blogging about how the pain felt here: http://meemai.multiply.com/journal/item/67/After_the_dust_has_settled. And how amazing God’s plan unfolds for his beloved ones, because on that same day I blogged that, I met the most amazing man. Now, he’s my husband and we’re expecting our first baby (I’m giving birth in April!). Waiting on the Lord is never in vain. He definitely gives only the best. Your post is a lovely encouragement to many singles out there. And it made me reminisce how the Lord gave me my happy ending! πŸ™‚ God bless you and Patrick–I believe you will be used mightily by the Lord together. <3 Normi

  33. I am sure that this post has blessed others just as it has blessed me. This is just what I needed to (hear) read. Thank you πŸ™‚

  34. I felt like I was the one writing this blog coz It feels like its all exactly what my heart I about to say. Thanks for this post. πŸ™‚

  35. for someone like me with a Coke Zero lovelife for the past 3 years, this is an inspiration and a reminder not to rush being in a relationship. Cheers! Stay happy & in love! God bless πŸ˜€

    So maybe who knows,i might find my next and last girl here? Destiny eh? πŸ˜€

  36. you never fail to get me teary whenever i read your articles about love/relationship.

    i have a confession to make though… crush ko din si Patrick dati kaya nung makita ko pix nyo i said to myself…”awwww God answered my prayer, pat is not for me.. :(” hahaha…

    but i was happy to see u both. im one of the fans of Pat loves Pat fans club! πŸ™‚

  37. Wow! blockbuster!

    I guess we all have two things in common after reading this, the tears and the perfect timing!

    I think the better by-product of this post is the reminder (from the numerous comments) that I’m not alone in this.

    Still trying to put the fresh pain aside and be excited for God’s gift to me.

    I agree, God is sending/resending this message to us through you. Thank you for the time to relay the message. : ] Tell the Boss, salute! ayt! patiently waiting daughter here : ]

  38. I know someone who has the same perception like yours. and now his my boyfriend. Thank you for this blog. Nice to read talaga. God is love.

  39. This is really a nice, inspiring, and well-written article. Some things are worth waiting for. Thanks Patty!

  40. Hi Patty,

    I’ve been stalking your blog for years now… and this post really touched my heart. I’m getting married this year too and I was just really blessed with your story.

    Keep writing and blessing other people through your words.


  41. I was very moved while reading this, and I can’t help but to cry as I’m reading your post… Thank you, you’re such an inspiration! It is indeed that true love can wait…thanks again!

  42. Hello Patty,

    I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time now and found your post. I’ve been single for almost a year now and feeling the pressure of having a husband, baby, and all those feeling of having someone in your life. Your post on being happy with being single hit me. It made me realize I’m feeling sad and unhappy about my situation, my being single. I just hope I’ll be happy with my current status and be happy about it. And finally enjoy being single.

    Thanks and asking for your prayers.

  43. Hi Ms. Patty. This is my first time to read this blog of yours. I just saw it on FB and since I’m single, I got curios on reading it. I’m inspired with the story you had written. I’m starting to live a new life after 11 long years of being in a relationship with someone I thought to be with forever. I just love the idea of remembering that God have special plans for our lives. We may not know it now, but the key point is to wait – PATIENTLY. I believe that like you, one day I will be saying that ITS WORTH THE WAIT. πŸ™‚

  44. I hope you dont mind me posting this one on my blog. Dont worry, I will include a link back to your site. πŸ˜‰ I was moved and have the same idea/views when it comes to love right now. God will be busy giving me the right guy while am busy getting closer to Him.

  45. I was curious ‘coz of the title so I read it.. I didn’t expect to read the whole blog post because it’s too long. But I just cannot help myself and there I was, reading it nonstop. Thanks for the post.

    I was just wondering. Does the prayer that includes “Lord, give me a sign kung siya na, pero kung hindi siya, siya nalang please?” really work? hahaha!

    I know, that might not be included as “love”. But conditioning one’s self to be oh so patient for THE ONE seems to be a bit hard especially for those who are already in their 30’s or 40’s. I know a lot of women who are already in their middle adulthood stage but still wait for their THE ONE.

    I may sound skeptical. Well, yeah, I’m a bit skeptical when it comes to this kind of topic. But since you said that we should claim it, I’ll try again. I WILL CLAIM IT. Hopefully, it’d come true. (Sorry, NBSB here for 23 years and counting, hahaha)

  46. Hi Patty! Thank you for the beautiful post. I was moved by your words and encouraged too to believe that out there is a man God is making perfect for me. Thank you for reminding me that being single is God’s perfect way of transforming me into the woman worthy of this man’s love. πŸ™‚

  47. That was a really nice post. I really enjoyed reading it. But, not to sound like a bitter person, what if with all that waiting and patience that person does not come? Will you be happy staying happy forever??

  48. Hi Patty! I just wanna be.. like YOU! Your letter made me realize that waiting does not always end up in vain. That love will truly find it’s way to your heart when you least expect it. That everyone of us is really destined for someone. That you really have to love yourself first for others to love you back. Your words are very inspiring! Thank you for this piece!

  49. Beautiful and inspiring blog, Patty. I was NBSB for 27 years not because there were no boys interested in me but because it was my decision and of my priorities (justifying.. πŸ™‚ hehehe) But I met my wonderful husband 2 years ago and it was just so easy to say YES to him like what you’ve mentioned as well. I guess God will really give you the best love story you’ve ever dreamed of at the right time.

  50. this! it made me cry Patty… i know the one is out there.. God has better plans. just believe. πŸ™‚

  51. A must-read for singles indeed! Suddenly I feel happy πŸ™‚ I know I’ll be forever thanking God for writing my love story perfectly. In His time, not mine. Thanks for sharing!

  52. hi, this is the 2nd post that I’ve read from you…i was just reading a post that was shared by my friend and the link to this article was there…i am so thankful for what you shared…it was so beautiful…the other thing that really made me smile was this was posted on the day of my birthday (Feb 15)…hehehehe…happy coincidence for a happily single me ;0)

  53. amen to this patty! i also did the same thing almost 13 years ago. my family also encouraged me to pray for the right man to choose for keeps. i was an “NBSB” kind of girl back in college yet a few days of prayer later the guy i met at a band concert turned out to be my boyfriend of 10 years, my husband of 2 years (and definitely counting!) and the father of my beautiful 1-year old daughter. truly, the Lord has great plans in store for us, the right moment just adds to the element of suspense/surprise. πŸ™‚

    i’m loving the happy vibes you write about… praying for more inspiration to come to you dear! πŸ™‚

  54. Such a great encouragement patty! I had the same struggle, waiting for the right guy to come along and feeling impatient sometimes. Its true what you have said, that when your heart is set on God, and you set your heart to pursue that relationship with Him first, then He will give you your heart’s desire. I think I have met the guy for me, and the waiting will be so worth it. πŸ™‚ When God writes your love story, it’s sure to be perfect. :)thanks again for this. mde me tear up. haha. πŸ™‚

  55. I just broke up with my boyfriend and I am on the verge of giving up on love until I stumbled upon your post. Indeed God speaks to us in many ways and reading this is God’s way of telling me to stop for a while and give myself time to heal,to reexamine my life and follow His will for me….and it means to wait for the kind of love He destined for me. Thank you Patty πŸ™‚

  56. I always read and share. Read and share. Read and share! More Blessings and Safe Travels Ms. P.L. πŸ™‚

  57. sobra naka relate ako sa blog na to! ang ganda ms. patty sobra tagal ko na din nag hihintay for almost 19 years wla pa din.. na inspired ako sobra sa nabasa ko! maybe God is saving me for someone special :”>

  58. patty. i don’t know u personally.. but i always read your blog… u inspired me.. ilove this article of yours… i printed it and read it everyday… u gave me hope that there is someone for me. right now i am working on being ms right,in order for me to find mr right… God Bless… –

  59. Hi Ms.Patty or should I say Mrs.Filart? πŸ™‚ I was so blessed reading your blog, specially this one. I have read many stories and articles about waiting for “the right one”, but your personal lovelife testimony has a great impact. Thanks for making me realize that God is crafting a perfect lovestory for each and everyone of us. I know that when I’m ready and I have more of God in my life, my perfect soulmate will finally come. For now, I will enjoy everything that I have and will try to discover new things while waiting. May God bless you more and more!

  60. hi patty, i totally agree with you, this happened to me too! love found me when i was ready. so for you people who are looking for love, ask yourself, are you ready for love? =P
    god bless everyone!

  61. hi patty,
    a friend of mine shared this story to me knowing that I have to know your story as it transcribed to what I am working on with my new found freedom. I feel so aligned as I read your message that it gives so much positive energy with me. Thank you as it adds more excitement to my journey with God. Salamat po. (seh-lest)

  62. I read this blog entry a year ago wen I was stil in a relationship.i felt i was w/ d wrong guy. now I am single,i dropped by again and read ur post many times.my heart felt so empty.but after reading ds post I am inspired not to rush and just trust God for his plans.. thank u patty for ds post. πŸ™‚
