There Are Still Good Ones Out There!



My life is a testimony, the enemy has aimed for my life several times, but God has always pulled me out of darkness. No matter how many times I'm struck down, I rise again. Then God blessed me with the most amazing life mate. My husband is really one that defies the norm, I truly believe I'm the luckiest girl alive. This man loved me as a size 10 and also as a size 18 when I blew up in pregnancy, he never made me feel anything less than beautiful. At the end of all that pregnancy weight and hormones I lost my baby at birth and this man has cried with me, prayed with me and prays for me. He ached as I ached. When I told him I can't go thru it all again he told me children or no children it's me he married and me he loves. He fightes my battles and fights for us. He is a hardworker and a provider. I can't think of him and not be overwhelmed with intense love. He is not perfect but he tries he damn hardest. He always ask me what he can do to make me happy. Even when he is angry with me he doesn't hold a grudge. Maybe God has seen the ups and downs of my life and sent me his best because he is definitely my best. My Oyeyemi definitely defiles the norm. I love him to the moon and back.

The poster put this up as a comment but I had to make it a post. I'm not one of those that read a comment or post and says this brought tears to my eyes, but this literally brought tears to my eyes. Dear poster I am so happy for you. We need to hear more stories like this (yours and Tolulope Alabi's) to rebuild our faith in love and marriage. With all the negative stories we hear these days it's so easy for one to accept that there can be no good in marriage. I thank you for sending this in. May God continue to bless you and your home. 

Ps. I'm not doing this for just myself. I've got some single friends who already believe their marriages to be doomed and it's mainly as a result of the stories they read on blogs and stories they hear. There's one who starts most of her sentences with "I know my husband will cheat so...." Or "I know my marriage won't last so I'm just going to have my two kids and leave". I keep begging her to stop prophesying negatively.
       We really need these positive stories to rebuild our faith and hope in the institution of marriage.

    And while we pray for a good spouse,be a good person ur spouse out there is praying for...

  2. My people, I have been married for almost ten years and we have shared the most amazing times and also some back-breaking difficulties. It takes a lot of understanding and the grace of God to make it work.
    You see, most of us watch too many hollywood flicks on relationships, love and marriage and I can tell you from experience that it isnt a bed of roses.
    1. NEVER enter marriage with expectations
    2. Understanding that it is not difficulties that break marriages, it is lack of the will to resolve them that does that.
    3. Like it is said, pride goes before a fall. NEVER let your pride get in the way of saying 'I am sorry' even if you know you are right
    4. If you are wrong, say 'I'm sorry'; if you are right, shut your mouth!
    5. NEVER stop dating! No matter how difficult or stressed out you get, always make out time for yourselves. Afterall, that was what you were doing before you got married.
    6. Laugh with your spouse, not at him/her and NEVER lose your sense of humour.
    7. Treat him like a king if you want to be treated like a queen; treat her like a queen if you want to be treated like a king.
    8. Yes, you (the man) are the head of the home. ALWAYS make sure there is no pain in the neck. A neck pain is worse than a headache!!
    9. Children are a gift from God. Try (bcos it's not easy) not to let them make you lose sight of your spouse. Have you ever wondered why Adam & Eve didnt have children while they were in Eden?
    10. NEVER compare your marriage to anothers' because you dont know what is really going on in theirs. make your own mistakes and learn from them.

    I'm not a marriage counsellor but these have worked for me. There are no hard and fast rules about marriage. What works for one may not work for another so keep an open mind!

    1. This is great @Eazee E, but I think #3 and #4 are conflicting. I'd prefer "shut your mouth" when you're right as stated in #4. #9 is doing a crincum crancum in my brain though. Please explain this new *WONDER*. Lol

    2. Thanks Eazee E, great nuggets for both married and single

    3. I forgot 2 ver important ones:
      11. NEVER enter a marriage with an exit plan because you will never give it your best shot.
      12. ALWAYS buy gifts for one another, on and off season, whether there is something to celebrate or not!!

      Delete
    4. Lol...pls explain #9.

    5. Eazee E, thanks a lot. And BTW you've been missed, welcome back.

    6. ((((Big hugs))) to u T! Hve been really busy chasing the greenbacks!

      @ Sasha & memphis........no 9. The answer is an explanation i have given myself and when you believe it, it makes u see marriage in a whole new light. Adam and Eve didnt have children while they were in the garden because the most important people in a marriage are husband and wife. When both keep themselves happy, children or not, what do you think happens? Contrary to what most people think, LOVE is not the foundation of a good marriage. Before love will come friendship and companionship and compromise and understanding.
      Children are an extra gift! The most important gift in marriage is the gift of companionship.

  6. Aww Thelma thanks for making a post out of my little comment and thanks for ur prayers I really appreciate it. Please tell ur friend confession is possession, all those negative comments about her marriage are wrong wrong wrong. There is power on our lips and knees and that power should be used to build not tear down. I have also learnt a few things from Eazee E's comment, everyday is an opportunity to grow and learn more. Don't be afraid of marriage, the bible says perfect love cast out fear... that kind of love is what we should all work towards. It's a journey

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

One More Post...

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on).
