Only Selfless Love

When I met Bro. Vince 3 years back, he was teaching high school students here in General Santos City, and I thought he was doing his best as a teacher because teaching is a profession that requires yourself to be offered to your students. 

We became closer as friends, and as a group because of our blogs. We had times that as a group, me and my kids and hubby would have pizza with him and Sir Gilbert, and how I have missed those days when we had weekends over pizza and Coke. Many times we have had our share of laughter together because of different topics over lunch, through cracking king crab shells or just sharing problems and insights over coffee and batchoy.

But he is a brother, and he can't be ours all the time, he has to give himself to the Lord. As he professed his perpetual vows just today, my eyes swelled with tears, I was overwhelmed at how selfless he has offered his life to the Lord.
I understand that the Lord has been calling him, and now that he has professed his eternal love for the Lord, I can only admire his selflessness, his decision to take up his cross and follow HIM. 

Congratulations, Bro. Vince. I can only pray that you will be strong, and that you will cling to HIM inspite and despite your weaknesses.

Only selfless LOVE, that's what I thought about the giving of yourself.

Oh, and that's me with my new and short hair!

@The Itinerant: Wouldn't miss it for the world.

@jinky: Oo nga te, sayang wala ka doon.

@KG: Brother pa lang siya, hehehe.

@Annebella: Very inspiring friend, he is.

@docGelo: Oh indeed, I often wonder how some people can be so selfless in their service for others.
