Lovely Abella and Benj Manalo have finally moved into their dream home.
On Sunday, October 10, 2021, the celebrity couple held a house blessing that was attended by their closest family members and friends.
The following day, Lovely and Benj uploaded photos from their mini gathering on their respective Instagram accounts.
In their posts, the couple noted that all their guests underwent COVID-19 testing before they attended the intimate gathering.
Lovely and Benj were also grateful for achieving another milestone in their life.
In her post, Lovely wrote, “Lord, Salamat sa napakagandang blessing sa aming mag-asawa, nagpapatunay na kung may tiyaga may nilaga, nagpapatunay na lumaban tayo sa buhay, ginamit namin ng tama at maayos ang talentong binigay samin ni Lord [emoji]”
She also paid tribute to her husband and noted how teamwork made their dream possible.
She said, “Sa aking asawa, salamat at lagi kang nakaalalay sa akin, salamat at team work tayo sa lahat ng bagay, di po namin hinahayaang ayaw ng isa dapat laging meet half way kami..
“@benj makakaasa ka babe na sa lahat ng pagsubok lalo nating pagtibayan dahil marami pa tayong mararanasan.”
The Kapuso dancer-comedienne also thanked all their friends and family for their support.
She said, “Salamat sa mga taong dumalo, sa pamilya namin na naniwala sa amin, na naginspire sa amin na kaya namin magkaroon ng ganitong bahay, salamat sa pamilya namin na kahit kelan hindi humusga samin, lalo kaming binigyan ng lakas ng loob na kayanin lahat ng pagsubok.
“Sa aming mga kaibigan, salamat at mas lalo namin kayong nakilala sa panahon ng pandemya, kayo p nagsasabi na tama na pero sinusukli lang namin kung pano kayo naging mabuti samin, walang judgement, at ramdam namin na totoong masaya kayo para sa amin.”
Towards the end of her post, Lovely left a message to their Instagram followers who look up to them.
Lovely wrote, “Sa lahat ng naiinspire namin, salamat at bumabnagon na kayong muli, bumagsak din kami pero di kami nagpatinag sa problema, lalo niyong pgsumikapan kung nagsisimula na kayo.
“Wag kayong mawalan ng lkas ng loob, simulan ninyo sa tiwala kay LORD at tiwala sa inyong mga sarili.
“Kung di man lahat nagtitiwala sa inyo promise meron p ring mga taong magtitiwala sa inyo [emoji]”
For his part, Benj still could not believe that they have moved into their dream home.
He wrote in the caption of his post, “Still can’t believe it. Praise God for this wonderful blessing. Thank you Lord for using our family to share blessings to our loveones, family, friends and people around us.
“Some things I couldn’t explain, but all i Know, God is moving, The Lord is here, He will protect us from everything, provide for us.”
Benj also feels extremely blessed to have Lovely as his wife.
“I’m so blessed to have a partner, wife, a mother my bestfriend that could jive with me and make me a better person every day.
“Alam mo un mommy @lovelyabella_ team work makes the dream work. I love you so much [emojis]”
To end his post, Benj left his Instagram followers with some words of inspiration, and thanked their friends and family members who celebrated their latest milestone with them.
He wrote, “If you ask for Provision, the Lord will give you OPPORTUNITIES to earn, if you ask for Solution to your problems, He will give you SITUATION TO GAIN WISDOM.
“Sa lahat ng Family and friends who joined us yesterday thank you so much. You know who you are [emojis] may the Lord continue to guide us everyday [emojis] “
