She was a natural leader, an alpha
People gravitate towards her naturally
She has a heart of gold, a very loving and caring disposition
She has a stellar career in Human Resources, an innate understanding of human nature and character
She was a psychiatrist by training, the best
She was a happy person, woman whose delight is in lifting burdens off many shoulders
On the surface she has life figured out
She got married at 27
She married a marine biologist who worked with a research institute conducting research works around the shores of an island in
South America
Her husband took a leave of absence from his job the very first year after they got married
The plan was to start a family immediately
Due to the nature of her husband’s job, they would only see for two to three months in a year once he resumed
She felt she would
need the pregnancy and baby to keep her company whenever her husband was not at home
They really worked hard for that one year, but she didn’t get pregnant
Towards the end of the year, they started using certain drugs to help them with conception but nothing worked
She was very
Her husband went back to work, promising her that he would find another job which does not require him being locked on a ship or look for another way to get off the ship to spend some time with her
She understood their situation, the job was not only her husband’s
Passion, it was also a well paying job
She told herself she was still a bit young and they had time
She had her job, career, family and friends to keep her happy
Two weeks after her husband last, he sent her a message that his uncle who lived the beach of an island in Lagos was
Owning him some money and had indicated that he was ready to pay
She was to go to the Uncle’s house the following Tuesday morning to collect the money for him
She had some work issues to deal with that day, so she called the uncle and asked if she could come around the following
The uncle said okay
On Saturday morning she set out for the uncle’s house by 9am
It was located in an area of Lagos she had never been to before
The uncle welcomed her warmly
The uncle had been abroad for many years and his ex-wife and children still lived abroad.
returned to Nigeria to enjoy the money he made while he was married which he kept in an offshore account that the ex-wife had no knowledge of
He said his ex-wife took everything from him, including the children and he was advised by his lawyers to leave the USA if he doesn’t want
To be prosecuted again once his ex-wife found out he had some assets he didn’t declare as at the time of the divorce
So he left the USA with his stash of over five million dollars and started a new life all alone
He lived in a mansion and everything about him stinks of money!
The uncle told her what she planned to do while her husband was away
She said she would have loved to return to school for his masters in the UK but for lack of funding
(She didn’t know why she said that. She had never even had that in mind in his life. Perhaps she was trying to
gain his approval or impress him!) He had a very intimidating personality.
She had planned to spend at most thirty minutes with him when she left home but she had nothing better to do and the uncle was wonderful company
Around 2pm they went on a boat ride together (He had a dock
On his property and many boats
It was a thrilling experience, something she had only seen in movies
They were still on the lagoon by 6pm
Talking and flirting harmlessly
Then his uncle kissed her
(It was not unexpected, she had just been thinking in her head how a kiss would have
felt in that boat
The experience of waves of pleasure within waves of pleasure
She kissed him back
Right there on the boat, they had sex
When they were done, she started to cry, his uncle didn’t see it as funny in anyway and somehow convinced her she was being manipulative. They
Had sex again and she ended up sharing his bed all night
She had planned to leave very early the next morning
She had switched off her phone from the moment his uncle convinced her to go on a boat cruise with him
She didn’t want her husband to call and things to get awkward
She didn’t dare switch it all throughout the night
What would she have said to her husband or any of their relatives and friends who might call
She had fallen off the radar and it was safer to remain dark until she returned to her life
She woke up late and one thing led to the
Other again
She eventually left his uncle’s house with the money her husband’s uncle was owing her husband
When she got home, she switched on her phone and the messages rushed in
She told her husband she was experiencing cramps and took some drugs which knocked her off for two
Her husband said he called some people who came home to check her and they didn’t meet her or see her car in the compound
She said she left her car at the office the previous day because of the symptoms she was feeling
Her husband let the matter rest
Two weeks later she
discovered she was pregnant
It was an uppercut?
What was she to do?
Her husband had been gone for a month and some days
She was happy and sad at the same time
Happy because it was the news she had been waiting for since she got married
Sad because it came out of a weekend of
She had not been able to look at herself in the mirror since the incidence
If she had been told that she would ever do what she did that weekend she would have cursed or swore that it was impossible
The event made her see herself for what she truly was, a cheat and a
She didn’t believe she was able save face by telling so many lies and getting away with it
But getting out of the pregnancy dilemma was too much for her
She thought about it for many days
Eventually she confided in a friend
The friend told her to tell her husband the good
There are many ladies who didn’t know they were pregnant until they were two to three months gone
The timing was close enough for her to be able to get away with it
It was the easiest way out
Even if her husband asks for a paternity test, she felt it could fly because she
had been impregnated by his uncle (He and his uncle really looked alike) but the more she thought about it, the more she felt herself sinking into dismay
She would either define the circumstances surrounding her life or her life would be determined by the circumstances.
She had
treated many marital issues as a psychiatrist
She had read many issues too
She was already planning to sit her husband down and tell him the truth when they meet so that she can wipe the slate clean
If she went with the easy option, a lot of days of sorrow would be ahead of her
In future
She reached out to the brother in Jeans and T-shirt on Twitter
What do I do?
I am confused
Please help me sir
Her message came in on June 19, 2019 by 2am
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt called her and they started trying to make sense of her situation after praying
After praying, she told him what she felt she should do was call her husband and tell him the truth
It would cause bad blood in the family and she would be in the middle of a huge storm
She said she was not mentally prepared for the shame and the toxicity that would come crashing
upon her head
So the option was how she would navigate her way out of the mess with as little damage as possible
They concluded that she should explain what had happened to her husband without naming the person involved
She should apologize and move out of the apartment she got
married into
Everybody would be hurt but it would be honorable that she judge herself and do what was right for everybody considering the circumstances
She agreed
She wrote her husband the mail the next morning
She told him she cheated on him and couldn't pretend it didn't happen
She told him she had moved out of the house and would consider herself separated from him for the next one year and then she will divorce him without any contest
She told him she was sorry she wasted two years of his life
She said she wished things had turned out better
She left
Her husband tried calling her several times
She didn't pick until three months later
She said she had been reading his messages and she knew he was badly hurt by her action
He said he wanted to see her
She told him she was pregnant
He said, "You have remarried already?"
She said
He kept quiet
He understood what had happened and let it be
She delivered the baby in 2017
She began to wait on the Lord for direction & restoration
The Brother in Jeans and T-shirt told her that the word says "God places the solitary in families"
She was convinced God will
settle her in her own home at the right time
in December 2019, she took her two-year-old to Ikeja City Mall during the Christmas season
Right by the escalator, she saw him
Her ex-husband, dressed in army camouflage shorts and sneakers
He saw her at the same time too
Then he saw
her son and his eyes widened
They really looked alike, even she sees the resemblance everyday
She greeted him
He immediately got on the escalator with her and her son
He said "We need to talk"
She nodded
They got tickets to watch a movie
They sat at the back
They talked while her
son ate popcorn and drank Pepsi
She told him the truth
She told him the boy belongs to his uncle
She apologized again
He said he would like to see her again
She gave him her address
He was at her house first thing the next morning
He said "I want to marry you again"
He had his
She listened to them and she was convinced it was a good match
She reached out to the Brother in Jeans and T-shirt to share the testimony
The Brother In Jeans and T-shirt met with them
They discussed at length
He had an issue with his sperm cell
It was discovered while he
was in Argentina
He had been worried about their inability to conceive while they were married and did a thorough test when he got back to his base
He was willing to adopt her son and build a family with her
She agreed and they got married the second time

PS: I got the news that
she is three weeks pregnant this morning. God has done it) Hallelujah.
She had begged me not to write about his sperm whatever issue, so I didn't want to but he called as I was writing that I should share everything to encourage someone out there
Glory be to God alone

Somebody wrote me a stinker a few days ago
The stinker felt like Michael Tyson's famous punches as I read it
Not for the words though, but for the blatant degree of ignorance, untruths, half-truths, assumptions, misrepresentation and falsehood held together by so much venom and
The writer had misunderstood an action I took and rather than ask for an explanation or seek clarity, the person decided to put pen to paper to tear me to pieces
I read the message many times and came to this conclusion
It was my fault
Teachers ought to conduct certain tests
for students before placing them in classes
I didn't do this
I took this person on his or her word that he or she had been in Christ for a while and as such, had matured
I was wrong
I apologized to this person and I had to go back to the Lord to see how I could help this person

You cannot be a Christian and a FEMINIST at the same time!
In everyday parlance, the word “ideology,” like its cousins “worldview” and “values,” is morally neutral. The assumption is that every person has an ideology and that it’s impossible not to have one.
But ideologies are actually uniquely modern phenomena, and historically,they have been highly value-laden. The 19th-century philosopher Destutt de Tracey invented the word “ideology” to describe the system of ideas he designed to transform France into a more rational, enlightened
society. By this definition, an ideology is not a neutral worldview, but rather, an active intellectual framework tied to particular social and political ends. As such, English political theorist Maurice Cranston writes that it “has been from its inception a word with a marked

So I had some ministrations in Lagos that will go on for three days
I left home early in the morning and lodged in a hotel
My wife was also in Lagos that day, working
At 11pm, I finished my final ministration for the day, I called my wife
She didn't pick
She also didn't return my
That was Friday night
ON Saturday morning, I called her again before leaving the hotel
She didn't pick
I knew something was wrong
I knew it was nothing very serious but it was serious enough for my wife not to want to tell me what it was
My wife is the definition of a woman
She cannot lie for a million golden crowns
So when something goes wrong and she feels it might upset me, she will keep quiet
I called the security guy and the children's minder
Both told me the children and my wife were fine
I took my mind off it
Whatever it was would come

My younger brother was the one who took it upon himself to shop for a wife for me
I had been in an eight years relationship from 1999 - 2007. A relationship in which I invested everything and sponsored the lady's tertiary education. I had assumed that if a man deflowered a lady
the lady would be with him forever
I didn't know where I got that idea
It was most likely from reading Wole Soyinka's The Lion and the Jewel too many times
I was a student at the time and I grossly inflated my school fees to my father who lived abroad to be able to meet the needs
of this lady and I
I graduated from Bowen University in 2008 to discover this lady had met another guy in UI and wanted nothing to do with me anymore
My heart broke in such a way that I felt the pain of the knife plunged into it from my back for many days
Loving the wrong person

It started as a simple conversation
I was contemplating the death and resurrection of Jesus
and engaging the Holy Spirit in a conversation
I said "Do you know that Jesus was the one that declared himself as the resurrection and the life? was if possible that if he didn't make
that declaration he wouldn't have resurrected as he did?
Am I supposed to start declaring that I am the resurrection and the life too?
Will that be appropriate seeing that I have not had the occasion to stand before a grave and declare "Lazarus, come forth" like Jesus did?
Holy Spirit said "Do you want to stand before a grave and declare "Lazarus, come forth" as Jesus did?
I said yes
He said "Okay"
I went back to my contemplations, I always internalize the words of Jesus
Sometimes I would personalize the words and say them out loud
All his words
