Finally, I'm done watching this film. While others have pointed out the lessons on love they had deduced from this blockbuster film, here are ten things I'd like to share as I pondered on the film's captivating story line and plot twist:

1. God really works in mysterious ways. Tonyo and Lea’s path converged in the most unlikely circumstances. Oftentimes, the gravity of the negative situations of our lives blinds us from seeing God’s interventions, but faith tells us that He is always at work in every detail. Two words: Trust Him. 

2. The people whom God often use in our lives as His instruments in transforming us usually come in packages we do not really expect. But He had it all planned out, from the very beginning, and His plans always incline toward what is best for us.

3. We do not need to wait to be beautiful or perfect before God can use us. We may not know it all the time but our brokenness and imperfections can also be an instrument to have a significant impact on others. We are at His perusal anytime, anywhere, anyhow. Brace yourself to be amazed at how God can use you as a blessing to others. 

4. God loves us more than enough to not leave us broken, and He gives us the right people who we need at the right time and under the right circumstances to bring us back to the right track – the destination God has set before us. God also loves us enough to embrace the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly parts of ourselves.

5. God always has a plan better than what we have for ourselves, even if sometimes God has to break our hearts, or make us experience a terrible loss, in order for us to learn lessons we need to learn. He wrecks our plans when He knows that our plans will wreck us.

6. You will always reap what you sow in this world. What goes around comes around. Sow cabbage and you will reap a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. (Sow kindness and goodness bitaw oy.)

7. God’s timing is best. (Beer garden, 8pm! Hahaha!)

8. God created this life to be beautiful- and what may not be beautiful to us has always been beautiful in the eyes of God. God transforms every negative situation of our lives into something more beautiful. We just need to see with eyes of faith to look at our sufferings in a different light in order for us to enjoy the real beauty of the life in front of us.  

9. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. (The Little Prince ang peg! Pero mas hagulhol ako sa The Little Prince na movie kaysa sa movie na to.) We do not need to see God to always know He is there in the same way that we cannot conclude things about people just because of what our eyes have seen.  

10. God places people in our lives just for a season, but not for a lifetime. When that person’s mission is done, or your mission in that person’s life is also over, it’s time to move forward to another stage in your life where God has planned to use you both as a blessing to others.

If you haven't seen the movie yet, it's probably time to head on to the cinema nearest you but be sure to bring a friend and tissues with you. Enjoy!
