“An Open Letter for Popoy & Basha”


A Second Chance


Hello everyone! I hope all is doing great upon reading this update of my blog. I guess most of you have watched this movie and you had your own tissue on your hands while watching this. The classic tandem of John Lloyd Cruz & Bea Alonzo who plays Popoy & Basha in this movie. I watched this movie together with my husband Melvin, last week and after watching this, here are some of the lessons, or the things that we observed in that movie


“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12

There  we’re quite heart breaking and yes it’s where the #HugotLines originated, but as we closely watched and observed things, my husband told me one time, ” Ang bigat naman nyan” .. and that’s so true, there’s so much heaviness and we’re just reminded that in marriage, you can choose to fight and be angry towards each other or you can either choose to talk things out in a very calm and gentle way. “Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:2-3

  1. If I we’re given a chance to talk to them both, I will tell them that, in marriage you can either be a building block or a stumbling block for your spouse. Choose to fight for love because you choose to love your spouse just the way how Christ love you.
  2. Trust & Open Communication – It’s two of the most vital parts in marriage that we need not to neglect on. As you can see in the movie, Popoy & Basha we’re so in love and they we’re so pre-occupied with their goal of having their own dream house right? It’s okay to have a dream house or a dream car or etc. but it should not be the one who will dictate the joy of your marriage. Getting what you dream of is really an exciting part of marriage but we must always remember that having your spouse is more than a dream come true and yes building your dreams together is awesome and it’s your goal as husband and wife to never let go of each other and your faith in God that no matter what happens, you are still thankful and joyful if you have or not have that dream.
  3. Hope and Joy – We just observed that in that movie, even if it’s kinda heavy, you can see hope in the eyes of Popoy & Basha and still there’s this pure joy that they have even if they went through a lot of trials — they have a hope for a good, pleasing and perfect plans for their marriage. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares The Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
    And that’s true for marriage, it’s not a walk in the park or a bed of roses 24/7 but marriage is a beautiful season that you will grow, learn new things, realize how immature you are, or see how imperfect you are. You have to choose to stick together because you believe and you know that the person you marry, is more than a knight in shining armor, or your beautiful princess, but that person you marry is the person you choose to love, serve, forgive, accept, hold hands to, dream big dreams and yes grow old together with in this whole lifetime.  And that is love, more than the butterflies in the stomach, it’s the courage to love.

Marriage is a beautiful gift from God. It’s not base on Popoy or Basha movie, just like what they say ” Your love story is what you make it… your love story is unique from any other”  So trust God in your own love story, be brave enough to love, love, love!

“A Second Chance” Movie is really a mature and yet a showcase of the acting talent of the two leading actor and actress here in the Philippines. Truly a movie that can challenge each one of you to be brave enough to love and have a stronger faith not into your dreams but to God who owns all our dreams 🙂

Be excited and encouraged the the writer of your love story is God Himself. Trust Him all the more.

Until next time 🙂
