i love you because i am.♥

“I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;

I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help
Dimly seeing there,
And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good
And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.
You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.
You have done it
By being yourself.
Perhaps that is what
Being a friend means,
After all.”

today was very special day for me and A. for we both have a lot to thank the Lord Jesus Christ as He showered us with so many blessings! :)
first i already completed and submitted my requirements to my "future" medschool and A's thesis defense was approved! yey for the Lord! for He is good!

we celebrated by eating our favorite food in the world, pizza!☺ we dined in Pizza Hut located at the newly opened wing of Glorietta, our usual go-to place. 

-Caesar's Salad
-Chicken Tenders- these come with their special bbq sauce and fries
-3-Cheese Pizza
-a pitcher of House Blend Iced Tea

we really enjoyed the meal just because its pizza and each other's company.♥

another great thing that happened tonight was having a conversation with a very intellectual man whom we all consider as a father, for his insights were a compilation of very well pondered sense of reason and psyche. 

hearing him speak about his philosophy will just amaze you, fills you with wonder and awe. its just such a blessing to know him but more of such blessing hearing his catechism and lectures. 

he just told me a little while ago what saying i love you really supposed to mean. 


it can be summarized in the 1st paragraph of Ray Croft's quote. 
i am me when i am with you. i can be ME when i am with you.
a very beautiful though to reflect on. to evaluate oneself.
to think about how our relationships with other people are.

being affirmed or receiving affirmation from others is how to define your REAL being! you may say that nobody knows yourself but you alone however ask yourself if that is the true/real you? how do you know that your voice is real pleasant? or are you really that beautiful? 
you may know that you have a nice voice or pretty but is that the same way others think about you?

loving another person is simple as that you are being introduced to your real self. your TRUE self by that person you love. :') and you in turn is doing the same thing for him or for her.
touchingly beautiful!

these are just things that i had a very nice night to reflect upon on. just sharing these with you, dear visitors and readers!
