Ololufe mi tooto, thank you for marrying me. My prayer always is; may you not regret marrying me at any point of your life in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Truth be told, your first YES in front of Adenike hostel on the night of August 1st, 2006 was not my effort, ‘na God o’. All your reasons for not wanting to start such relationship or with me were genuine. It was true, it was too early for you to start thinking of marriage and I was obviously too busy. I was not ready for such relationship then but knew I would eventually need it. I thought I could start such relationship, keep it aside till when I would need it.
When you did not say YES despite my persistence, I went back to God, told HIM in prayer that evening in Winners’ Chapel (Isale General), that I would not go back to you again if you do not say YES that night. Immediately after the evening service, I dropped my Bible in my hostel (Goshen, Under G), and straight to your hostel (Adunola, Adenike Area). As usual, I was raw and real that night, I knew any relationship built on pretense or lie will not last, and I was not looking for a girlfriend, but asked God for my wife. I can only remember two of your questions that night; ‘have you prayed about this?’ And ‘will you have time for me?’
With smile on my face I said yes, I had prayed about it. I could not answer the second question to your satisfaction, my answer was not a YES and not a NO because I knew what you meant and I thought you were asking for ‘too much’. You also talked about my active involvement in student unionism but I refused to promise you that I would quit. All the same, you gave me a positive answer, I was so sure it was God because if I was to be graded by you that night I did not deserve the YES. I went back to my hostel with joy, appreciating God, ‘indeed Oluwatoyin’. Love of My Life, thank you for that great decision.
My adorable wife, thanks for allowing you and I to be one forever under the shadow of God Almighty, you showed me the meaning of love not with your words but with your deeds. You are not only intelligent but reasonable. Your heart for God and the things of God makes me happy every time.
Eleyinjuege mi owon, in the precious name of Jesus Christ; the older our marriage the better it will become. We shall never have a better yesterday in our marriage. We shall continue to move from glory to GLORY. Our children and children’s children shall be mighty in our lifetime. Amen.
Ejiwumi mi, thank you for being my best friend, editor, tutor, sister, hygienic coach, business partner, cooking-instructor, motivator, consultant, prayer partner and ‘help meet’. I love you and will always love you, so help me God. Amen
Happy Wedding Anniversary to us, being together as husband and wife has been period of drastic positive growth for us. You are the greatest of God’s blessings to me. Together we will make the whole world better than we met it in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
