Oh my poor daddy! He was spotted innocently rocking this night shirt in the villa the period of his mum's funeral....

Who Am I Preaching To???

Halleluyah somebori!!! Welcome to church today!  J
I figure this is something I would be doing often on my blog; share testimonies of people around me to strengthen someone’s faith.

This one happened to my cousin’s very close friend. The lady had been married for a while with an 8yr old only child and was never able to conceive again. Two years ago, my cousin had gone on vacation with her and her daughter, and while they were holidaying, the little girl got ill.  They came back to Nigeria and the unfortunate happened, she died. It was a very huge blow on not just the family but everyone around. I couldn’t even begin to imagine how the mum was able to sleep and wake up. Yet she held on. Long and short is the woman just gave birth to a baby girl some weeks ago after trying for close to 9yrs!  Now I know some people will say all kinds of things but I have chosen to believe that the ways of God are not our ways, period! This woman prayed, trusted and God heard! Heavenly lotto…E fit be you o! 

Second testimony is mine.  Errr yesterday out of boredom I was looking for something to read, and then I stumbled on a journal I had kept since 2008. My older sister had bought it and given to me and my female cousins, those of us who were still single. The journal basically is meant for writing notes to your future husband while you wait for him. It’s supposed to be a gift to your husband and you pour out your heart to him in the journal daily. It’s titled “Wait for Me” by Rebecca St. James.  Last night I read some of the things I wrote some years ago and tears just flowed.  I couldn’t believe those days were gone and I had indeed walked into my answered prayers.  So I called my hubby in and we read it together,  he just kept staring at me.   
Below are some stuffs I wrote in there:

January 31, 2008

Sweetheart, I trust in God’s perfect timing because I know it always turns out for good. Guess what? Today I browsed through a couple of ring sites trying to find out what we’d love best. I thought of white gold rings with diamond stones. It made me remember you and think so much of you. To be honest, I haven’t done that in quite a while, been busy trying to fix things in my life. I truly do not have so much to say today but I do love you, I guess that’s more important. 
Love,  Nonye.

February 6, 2009

I wish you could have seen the way I’ve been crying all evening, especially after reading what I wrote to you on February 14, 2008. It’s about a week to another valentine and I have not yet met you. I honestly cant say I understand it anymore. On another side, I’ve been through a lot in the last 4 weeks and am only managing to stay strong. I feel terribly lonely and I don’t know what to do but to sit down and hope that someday this whole wait would be over

May 21, 2010

Hmmm cant believe its been a year since I last wrote. I don’t feel lonely anymore for obvious reasons. So am goin to start by saying ND: so its been you all this time? All those notes in the past two years were you? Very amazing! It feels different writing now that I know who I’m writing to. Today we almost ended our relationship after 7months! How could we have even thought about it? Would it really have been possible to get on without you? We are almost 8 months in this walk and would hit 30 yrs together stronger, and understanding each other better. I look forward to our small and unique wedding later in the year, and most especially reading this journal with you and sharing the laughs!.

The message here is that no matter how long it takes, just like God said in Habakkuk 2:3 “The vision may tarry but wait for it, it shall surely come”.
