Lisa Love Story


I love reading love stories but this time I will be the one writing my own love story for my readers. My hubby's name is George. Sounds popular? Of course it is, because he has the same name with the ex-president in the US. He even has the same middle initial (W) with president Bush. I fondly call him "Honey" but when I'm teasing him, I call him Georgie. He doesn't mind at all. My hubby is loving and has a big heart. He always say "I love you" to me everyday. He said if he forget to tell it, I can kick his butt. Never done that yet. He love me unconditionally and he do everything for me as long as he can.

My hubby and I had a whirlwind romance. We met in the internet at christian cafe in May 2002. I was the first who e-mailed him and I just wrote "Hi, how are you doin'?" I didn't thought that that simple "hi" will turn into something serious. He e-mailed me everyday and then called me very often. And then he told me to call him collect whenever I want to. I told him no, because a collect call will cost him too much in his phone bill. He said he doesn't care even he will spend a lot in his phone bill as long as he can hear my voice. I said to myself, hmmm, this guy is not stingy. Stingy guys turn me off you know. In June 2002 he proposed to me. So fast huh! I prayed to God and seek His will for me. I asked God if this guy is the one he wants me to have. I've been through a lot of heartaches before and I don't wanna experience it again. I felt peace in my heart after I prayed. July 2002 I answered George's proposal through e-mail. He was so happy, me too. August 2007, he went in the Philippines to meet me. Then he asked me to go to the US Embassy in Manila to get the legal capacity for marriage. I thought we will just meet each other, because we didn't talk about getting married before he came to see me. I didn't even have enough time to get to know him. But one thing I've learned, if that person is God's will in your life, even though you've just known him in a short period of time, it felt like you've known him all your life. God has sent me my soulmate at last!



We only had 10 days to prepare for the wedding. September 11, 2002, we got married in our church. Lots of people attended our wedding, especially in the reception. My hubby was surprised to see a lot of people coming in. He didn't really mind, he was just fascinated, they're not used to that in US you know. Only the people you invited will come. In the Philippines, invited or not they will come to eat, he-he-he!!! Four days after the wedding, hubby flew back to US and left me with a lonely heart. I missed him so much. December 1, 2002, hubby returned to the Philippines and spent Christmas and New Year with me. He stayed for 2 months and flew back to the US January 29, 2003. March 2003, he quit his job, packed his suitcase and he returned again to the Philippines for the 3rd time because he missed me so much. He stayed until my visa was processed. September 30, 2003 we both went in the US. After more than 5 years of staying in the US, we came back here in the Philippines last January 6, 2009 and started a ministry for the Lord. Thank you Lord for everything. Great is thy faithfulness O Lord!!!
