“Our New Year’s Eve House Blessing in the Philippines” is a remarkable literary achievement since it’s the first time in months I’ve published two posts in the space of three days. With two birthday parties, Christmas and the aforementioned blessing, I’ve actually been somewhat busy. Regular readers of “Philippines Plus” know that I excel at doing nothing. But that hasn’t been the case as of late.
[smartads]San Joaquin, Iloilo. Sunday morning. 9:15 am. The wedding of John Vincent Sealmoy and Analyn Gange was due to start at 10:00 am. This was the first wedding in which my asawa and I would be a sponsor, and I did not know what to expect. Since the church, St. Joachim Parish, was 90 minutes from Iloilo City which is another 45 minutes from our home in Guimaras, we were not able to attend any rehearsals. I would just follow my wife's lead. A wise man always does.
