    Not Missing the Time of Your Visitation (Part 2)

    During those days while I was learning faith for supplies was also the period when my wife-to-be was being wooed by another brother.Now, as at then, I hadn’t proposed but had arrived at this assurance that she was the one for me. We were friends, all was fine until the brother showed up. Now, the brother seemed to have all things going far better for him than I could boast of. First, he was pursuing his doctorate, worked at one of the best universities in Nigeria, was well-to-do, was a leader of great standing in the Christian community he fellowshipped at, and to crown it, he was from the same…

    Letters from Uncle JD

    Of Purity in Courtship and Marriage

    Dearly beloved, As I thought about what to write to you today,  the Lord brought two different matters to mind.  One may seem to apply more to sisters and the other to brothers but in pondering much on them, it will be obvious that both are applicable to males and females. Courtship holds vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities are sometimes overwhelming. Scriptures having told us that marriage is honourable in all and the bed undefiled, we know how important sexual purity is important for believers. There were days during my courtship with my wife when I was vulnerable. At times, terribly so. But there was a way Temi conducted herself that made…

    Mothers know it all, Happy Mother’s Day

    One time as toddler I had skin rashes, more like a break out. It was probably a reaction to something. Scared I ran to mummy, ‘Mummy see my skin’ After examining it, she said go have your bath with Tetmosol. I did. Amazed, I walked up to her days later… ‘Mummy, the rashes are gone.’ She smiled. ‘How did you know what I should use ?’ I asked. She said, ‘It is my job to know’ Mothers know a whole lot… The office of motherhood demands it. To all Mothers out there, for all you know, do for us and share with us. Thank you! Happy Mother’s Day

    Omolabake Episode 9

    Episode 9 “Thank you” Morinsola smiled at the guard who pulled the eatery`s door for her. She scanned the room and sighted the booth where Omolabake sat. Their eyes met. Labake smiled. Morinsola made her way over to the booth. A woman with a bag stopped her in her tracks. “Hello Madam” She looked up to see her Pastor`s wife. “Oh, Good afternoon ma.” After exchanging pleasantries, the woman left with her food packs. “Old friend?” Omolabake asked as Morinsola took her seat, taking a sip of her smoothie “Actually. She is my Pastor`s wife.” “Oh nice” Omolabake wasn’t much of a church person. “So how are you?” She abruptly…

    Trust

    Look at ’em birds They have nothing, yet they have everything they need.  No single worry on their mind… Clothed in glorious feathers. Fed in due time. It strikes me that when my Lord Jesus was to tell his disciples about Trust, these were his words… Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?  Pause and read even slowly… YOUR FATHER in Heaven cares for as little as these… Hey! how much more,  very own Child. Let this realization warm your heart as you Journey…

    Florence

     My Darling Florence, I’d start on this note: the meaning of Florence captured my heart as i a name for my fashion label… ‘House of Florence’ resonated with me so much but Bukola and Kehinde Obimodede didn’t seem to buy the idea. They probably felt it was a pity-party thingy. But no, it wasn’t! I love Florence so much because it means to Blossom, and Blossom you did! There is this quote of how we don’t die but we multiply and in four ways and more, I find this to be true as I look at my siblings and me. A rehearsal of today’s event especially being a Saturday comes…

Mikhail found herself relaxing into the soothing arms of the music. The programme came to a climax when Kenny K’ore got on stage.  Mikhail used her palm to…
