Thank you for introducing “The Feast” to me!

Flashback Friday

Exactly a year ago, an unforgettable experience changes my life forever. I was at the airport Terminal 3 where I was waiting for my flight back to my hometown Iloilo when someone in a green shirt catches my eye. Well I guess I was not in the mood to meet someone nor even try to be friends with someone due to the fact that I just came from a break up. Well I had my last glance at her, pack my stuff and embark on the plane.

I was sitting comfortably in the seat no. 16B when I notice that girl in green shirt walking towards me. It turns out that she is my seatmate on a one hour flight. Well nothing happens either. It was really a luck or a good timing that a seafarer seats on the right. Right after takeoff, me and the seafarer on the right open up a conversation. Since I am working in the Shipping industry specifically in the manning agency, I did have a good conversation with seafarer. We are approaching our destination when suddenly the captain advises that there would be an expected turbulence as we are start to descent for landing.

It was at this time that the lady in green awakens and I immediately open a conversation with her. Well there wasn’t enough time to have a good talk since it’s only minutes prior landing and disembarkation. I just asked her if she happens to have a relative who is a seafarer for a probable recruit. Hahaha. What a great alibis. After which I did get her number then we disembark the plane.

Yes, we did have a nice conversation on text the day after we meet. She got home for their reunion and I went home to unwind and to relax. Three days after and I went back to Manila while she stays in Iloilo for another day.
Well we did get to have a dinner with her friends the day before my minor operation. And she had a breakfast with me after our FAME fun run.

She was regular attendees of the Feast which at that time, I think sometime last September; I had no idea what it was or what its all about. Admittedly my love tank was empty at that time, so I am clinging to those who has more or with a full love tank. The changes in my life happen when I started to attend the feast. At first my intention was to impress her or get her attention but it was later changed into wanting a personal change, receiving more blessings and even to the extent of being a blessing to other people. It changed me that I am regularly attending the feast even at times that I go there alone.

Sad thing though that our friendship doesn’t last long, begins to fade and slips away. I am always telling myself that she crosses my life for a reason, to dust me off, to point me to where the true happiness and love can be found. She also needs to cross other person’s lives so that they can be changed the way I am changed. A part of me is saying that I want her to stay but I would rather be, not a selfish human being, because I know she can touched and change many more lives. For now, I do not have any news about her, but I know she did become a blessing to many lives.

I did join a CG group last April, and as always, I am feeling blessed and happy attending our regular meetings.

Well, how can I forget “The Feast” and how it changed my life forever. God is really good on me. Amen.
