How my marriage helped me understand God’s love language

I love Love. Or atleast, the idea I had in my head before I got married. After I got married, I soon realised that I needed to get my head out of the clouds, erase all the expectations and purge myself of the ideas Hollywood had planted in my mind. It was time for work. Expressing Love Looking back at my friendships and romantic relationships over the years, I would call myself a fierce-heady-romantic lover. I used to think that the proof of my love for someone/something is writing about it, talking about it and telling the person about it. …

Fulani Herdsmen; Violence or the way of Love?

Fulani herdsmen

This is a really hard topic to write about as I have conflicting feelings. There’s so much to be said and I am going to go on either side of the spectrum   “… I told my people, any Fulani herdsmen you see around you. Kill him” I cringed when I heard a supposed “Man of God” make this statement boldly and initially I was very pissed off and while I still don’t agree with making that kind of statement because it fuels violence and further division that already exists in our nation, I understand why he is angry, I …

Is this really Love?

counter culture

Happy Monday People, How are you all doing? Hope your weekend went well? I am still trying to get back into the blogging groove and keeping up with alot of other blogger! *Phew* Today, we would be looking at Love and redefining it! Let’s dive! Over the years, I have learnt about love in different ways. I have heard Love being defined as God himself, Love being associated with giving and the other 1 Corinthians 13 4-13 definition of Love. There is only one thing that baffles me, the narrative before the popular parts of 1 Cor 13

I am sure every newly wed must have heard this annoying question the most in the shortest amount of time “How is married life” As much as I know that they may mean well and some people just really want to know to prepare themselves for the time, the question can get so annoying mostly because it’s all you have heard since you got married, I mean no one cares about “How are …

#BecomingMrsO: How did we meet?

    I am glad you asked. If you don’t know me very well you definitely wouldn’t know that I am a very skeptical person. It’s a part of me that I keep locked away for just the people that are ready for that part of me. I started going to a fellowship where they genuinely cared about people that came there, Imagine my level of skepticism. I mean, it is very hard these days to see anyone that really cares about you without wanting anything in return. After our 2-3 hours (depending on the level of gist) fellowship the …

I got Married!

Wow!! It’s been forever and I cannot lie, as much as I miss writing, at some point I felt no remorse about not blogging despite the reminders from people about my hiatus. Can I say I am back? Well…. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves but one step at a time. I blamed many things for my absence but my laziness and inability to adapt to change. This is my confession. I HATE wordpress and It has been difficult adapting to change which has generally not helped me to be very excited about posting anything. I really wish the back-end …
