Last week we started our weekend with our pamanhikan.We kind of followed the essential parts of the pamanhikan tradition. Lendl and his family brought in everything from cutlery to food, especially my favourite Filipino food, kare-kare! We had it at my aunt/uncle’s house to also include them and my lolo and accommodate more people. As I said in our vlog, we’ve been engaged for a year and have already started planning our wedding. We still talked about our plans during the pamanhikan, but we didn’t film those conversations to keep our wedding a surprise for our guests.
In our vlogs, you see that we mostly hang out and eat with people. Our fellowship with others begins with a simple sharing of meal or eating together—we bond over food. It’s not so much about the quality of the food, but the quality of our conversations. What do you talk about with your friends? Are you encouraging them? Is it merely gossip about someone else? Always encourage, always lift people up to the Lord!
It’s also important to remember that although these earthly food, earthly things can make it seem like we are full and up to the brim, Jesus Christ is the only one who can satisfy the hunger of our souls. Food is bread; bread is Jesus; therefore, Jesus is life (John 14:6).
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst…” —John 6:35
Maybe you can come hang out and eat with us!
