Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and his wife Angeli are celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary!
In an Instagram post last Wednesday, August 7, the singer sweetly recalled how their strong faith helped them surpass life’s challenges through the years.
“It was 35 years ago that we made that commitment to be husband and wife. She was 25 and I was 19. Yes, I know our story is good enough to be made into a movie, but I’m here to say that this wouldn’t have lasted this long without the grace and mercy of the almighty God to see us through it,” he said.
“We’ve been through the most challenging of times and thankfully we’ve come out of them only as people who wanted to become better and not bitter. No, she isn’t perfect but I’m far more imperfect than she is and yet she loves me just the same and I’m truly thankful for this,” he continued.
He also gave an advice to couples who are currently struggling to overcome life’s challenges.
“None of this however, developed overnight but over time. To all couples out there who’ve struggled through the years of being together, please know that we too have struggled. In fact we still do at times but I believe it’s part of the dynamics of any relationship and it also brings us to realize the need of having God in the center of our union.”
“Yesterday was our 35th anniversary. I give all glory and praise to Jesus because it’s Him who put us together, and it is He who will keep us together. I love you @angelipv 💚💚💚,” Gary ended.
Gary, who has been battling Type 1 diabetes since his younger years, needed to undergo a coronary artery bypass surgery last year, after suffering from a heart disease.
He was also diagnosed with cancer and underwent another surgery to remove the mass on his right kidney.
Early last month, the veteran singer revealed that he is already cancer-free.
Gary is a regular performer in “ASAP Natin ‘To,” and recently served as a judge in “World of Dance Philippines.”
