Oh Yes, Anniversary #26

On this day, 26 years ago, my GEM & I exchanged our vows in front of God, the congregation, family, friends and the community, too ... This is one of the happiest milestones in our life's ... During these 26 blissful years, my hubby & I have totally enjoyed each others company in more ways than one ...

Thank you Heavenly Matchmaker for telling me in Church 27 1/2 ago to turn around because you had a long awaited gift for me ... I'm so glad I did, because NOW & ALWAYS I'm blessed with a loving husband, a positive roll model for our 4 Diamonds sons and the man that makes my hearts beat 100 mph every time I see him or hear his sweet, strong and Dominican voice ... #HaveMercy, Ladies & gentlemen, WAIT on the Lord and you'll see how BLESSED married life is ... #SweetJesusLove,

Concur with Us?

God has placed in my husband's and my heart to lift up a prayer for all those women and men that are being physically, mentally and financially abused by the woman or man that one day said these words to them  "I Love You" and "I Do" ... Whether those words were pronounced in a Church, at City Hall or during an intimate backyard ceremony, that still doesn't give them the right to hit you  ... 
Furthermore, those live in boyfriends or girlfriends that don't believe in the word commitment or help pay any bills; but dare to put their hands on you because they can't handle certain issues in a mature manner, truly need help! For their definition of love is misguided and if you don't open your eyes, one day a coroner will be called to your home. One quick question, if you have children with this person that obtains pleasure in beating you, what will happen to those sweet babies that are viewing "ALL" of this? Set aside your desires and think about them? Perhaps, what we're saying sounds harsh; but we've seen it numerous times and it ALWAYS ends in a tragic way. Ponder this, there are 2 people in a relationship and one of them don't wish or know how to comprehend the concept of dealing with anger, confusion and/or low self esteem in a calmer fashion  ...
In conclusion, you deserve better, therefore please STOP making excuses for that individual or blaming yourself for the way she or he is treating you and seek help for yourself, and maybe the abuser will do the same. On account of this is what the bible says regarding this particular situation ...
Colossians 3:19 (NIV) - Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

Please, don't forget to pray?

2 Blissful Events

Today, at the Advincola home, 2 wonderful events are being celebrated. The love of my life, the man that Jesus Christ allowed me to set my eyes on for the 1st. at Church is celebrating his "Birthday" ... I'm going to be honest, every year my GEM looks, sounds and cooks better and better ... When it comes to surprising our 4 Diamond sons or me with something tremendous, my Dominican Danish is always the man with a foolproof ... #HaLLeLuJaH, However, today our 4 loving sons left their Papi speechless; because they purchased a Monoprice(Route 66) Guitar for their father & me ... #Hehehe, I say the guitar is for both of us; because when my Honey Bun gets into his "Serenading Romantic Moods" then I'm the only that truly benefits from it ... #HaveMercy,

In addition, my GEM & I are Praising God, LOUD, proud and with a dinner that's going to cold our tummies with lots of sweet love; because 26 years ago today my hubby & I were wed at City Hall ... That's right, 26 years of trails, tribulations(not with each other) but with a people that don't believe in the true definition of the institute of the word "Marriage". In our book and heart, the word marriage means "TiL Death due You Part ... Thank you Gracious God because you knew that I didn't know the true meaning of a heartfelt chuckle until you introduced me to the man I call today my GEM, husband, soul-mate, father of our 4 handsome sons and a unique Christian man that glorifies your name where ever he goes ... I Love this Dominican Man, our 4 sons call Island Boy ... This is us 26 years ago ... #HaLLeLuJaH,

Our Coffee Break

No matter how hot it is, my GEM & I must partake of our customary coffee break ... Because that's where we take the time out of our busy day to look deep into each others eyes, whisper sweet some thing's in each of our hears and wrap it all up with a loving nudge, a romantic wink and a message like this ...  "Same time tomorrow Baby " ...

Thank you Gracious God for placing in my life a husband that knows how to turn the simplest things into a memorable event ...
