From Our Readers: There's a Man God Created for Me

And this is for him.

I have been waiting for you all my life. Sometimes I can't stop thinking about you. I think about that moment when our worlds finally meet. I hope you are as excited as I am because that day will be one of the happiest and most blessed moments of my life.

I simply wonder how you are today and how you've been these past years. Do you eat your meals on time? Do you get enough rest despite of your busy schedule? Has your heart been broken like mine? Please do not worry because I will patiently wait for you. I am not in a rush—although this waiting period really tests my patience. I do not want to make you feel like you owe me time when all I understand is that you have to set your priorities straight, even if I am not one of them as of now.


You told me you are going to focus on your career first before anything else. That is a bright and wise idea. Like you, I also want to build work on my hopes and dreams. I hope when we both have stable careers, God will finally direct your steps towards me.

I hope when we both have stable careers, God will finally direct your steps towards me.

I want you know that you are included in my prayers. I have been asking God to give you to me because I hold on to what is written in Matthew 7:7-8: "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened."

I strongly believe in God, miracles, love, you, and the idea of us being one. You will always be my favorite man in this world—a kind, loving, hardworking, godly, talented man who uses his talents to glorify God is all I need as a lifetime partner. You are all I need in this world. You do not know how amazing and lovable you are to me every time you use your voice to give honor to God.


I know that I am not the best woman you are going to meet but I will make sure that I will give you every thing you need and want. I will be the woman your heart has been longing for. I will be the woman who will complete you. I will be the one to give you the love you deserve.

I love you always. I can't wait to tell you that you mean the world to me. I can't wait to hug you.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
