Tears sting my eyes as I write this. By the way, it has been so long I blogged but I’m back and better. Please follow this blog by email and you’d get my posts straight in your inbox.
Why do I want to cry?
My family just moved to Lekki, by divine instruction. So, if you are on the Island, I’m closer to you now than ever before. Feel free to book a personal session with Doctor Love. Back to the gist. So, with new location, comes plenty packing and unpacking.
My wife, lover of books (who insisted we make a beautiful bookshelf when we got married) was arranging our bookshelf. She actually still is arranging as I type. She is the neatest and most organized woman in the world. So, while arranging, she saw a jotter (my sister, Tomisin, and her husband’s wedding souvenir) and after a few minutes of looking through, she gave me.
I had to fight the tears because David and Esther are awake. I’m still fighting the tears. I saw the words my sweetheart, my love, wrote to me May 2008. That’s about eight (8) years ago. I saw RAW LOVE and DEVOTION. I saw the beginning!!!
I still love my wife with my life, same with her, but there was something refreshing and warming about seeing her express those words to me when our love was just growing. The words took me back years ago to the wee moments of our love relationship. And in that moment, love for my wife rose to a new level.
She’s presently carrying Samuel (backing him), talking to David, explaining the children’s program on Daystar to him as Esther listens on. We have been through a lot in five (5) years of marriage and I make bold to say, SHE IS THE BEST WIFE IN THE WORLD.
I have been so overwhelmed with growing the ministry, being a husband and father, being there for countless proteges across the world, that I have forgotten to be my wife’s BEST FRIEND, not just a friend. I am glad I read her letter again today. I am reminded of my primary responsibility. And I will live up to it.
So, for you reader, have you lost your fire (in your relationship, marriage, career, studies, business, ministry, walk with God etc), YOU NEED TO REMEMBER! Take a memory (or physical trip) to where it all started and take time to relive the moments. Get the passion back. Rekindle the fire. Go back to where it all started from…And if it makes you cry, just let the tears run…
As I conclude, I also want to ask you to do things in the present (write a letter, go on a date, post on your blog, take pictures…) Just capture this moment. You will need the memory in years to come.
