About A Box of Doughnuts and a Prayer

On this same date last year, as I was serving as a coordinator for Sir Ariel (and as a house guest for Academic Services, I received this surprise; a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts from somebody who remained unnamed.






A year has passed and the only thing left for me is this:the little note from that gift with my name and department on it. Upon hearing about the unexpected surprise, my mom was suspecting it came from my ex since the nearest branch and only branch of Krispy Kreme was in Serendra in Taguig. The thing is on that same day just after lunch, my ex came to the office but of course I didn't interrogate him about the thing. See the penmanship and be the judge.



On the other hand, while reading my books, I found this wonderful couples prayer:


A Prayer for Couples
by Marianne Williamson

Dear God,
Please make our relationship a great and holy adventure.
May our joining be a sacred space.
May the two of us find rest here, a haven for our souls.
Remove from us any temptation to judge one another or to direct one another.
We surrender to You our conflicts and our burdens.
We know You are our Answer and our rock.
Help us not forget..
Bring us together in heart and mind as well as body.
Remove from us the temptation to criticize or be cruel.
May we not be tempted by fantasies and projections, but guide us in the ways of holiness.
Save us from darkness.
May this relationship be a burst of light.
May it be a fount of love and wisdom for us, for our family, for our community, for our World.
May this bond be a channel for Your love and healing, a vehicle of Your grace and power.
As lessons come and challenges grow, let us not be tempted to forsake each other.
Let us always remember that in each other we have the most beautiful woman, the most beautiful man, the strongest one, the sacred one in whose arms we have repaired.
May we remain young in this relationship.
May we grow wise in this relationship.
Bring us what You desire for us, and show us how You would have us be.
Thank you, dear God,
You who are the cement between us.
Thank you for this love.
Amen.
