I Still Believe In Your Brand
Sitting here, one day after my mgm's birthday - 17 January (or depending on where you are, in the last hours of my mgm's birthday), I can literally feel all the thoughts running around in my head like little children on a playground. They are thoughts of many things but mostly, they are thoughts of the miracle that is my marriage. Thoughts about the person that is my husband. My man. A man I have grown up with. A man with whom I have shared so much.. A man with whom I have stood to face the brutal onslaughts of life. A man with whom I have been blessed with three wonderful children. My mgm, my mighty good man. This is to you:
I am sitting here, thinking about you, about us, about all the 'ifs', the 'buts', the 'neverthelesses' and the 'in spite ofs'. There is no getting away from the facts. There is no ignoring the truths either. Some were born, destined to live and love and leave. Not us. We were born to live and love and love and love each other. Regardless.
Boy, have we won some victories my mighty good man. Yes, ours is a union that has matured over time, bearing bravely the scars of past hurt and pain. The bottles may have been broken once or twice or maybe even thrice but still, by the special grace of God, the wine is still sweet and it only keeps getting sweeter as it is poured out into new and improved bottles of fortified glass boasting depth and character. Yes, a wine brewed over close to twenty years must be an excellent one and as you know time is not the enemy of fine wine. So my love, my mgm, I toast our wine. As you celebrate your birthday my prayer for you goes like this:
In 2013 as you go into a new year, may God move you to a new level spiritually, physically, intellectually and financially and on this new level may God's grace, mercy , favour and peace be yours every second of the day. May God himself breath on all the works of your hands my mighty good and hardworking man. I know the desires of your heart. May God bring them to pass in ways you could never have thought possible. May God's himself give you significance in all things and may you never step outside of His will and purpose as you take yourself, our family and business to new heights in 2013 in Jesus name! Amen! (Come on love, say a better AMEN! Lol!).
There is more in my heart that I could say but I will keep those for my God who is always willing and able to do for me and mine. For now, my mgm, believe me when I say that I love you and I look forward to brewing our fine, mellow 'love' wine for many more years to come. Through eyes sparkling with tears, I raise my glass to you on your birthday. My mgm, olowo ori mi, ololufe mi owon, forever shall we be together by God's grace because the truth of the matter is that I still believe in your brand.
Happy Birthday my love. Happy Birthday!
From my heart
P. S. Oh, almost forgot, I do have a present for you. What is it? I have a new and improved wife for you in 2013. What? New wife ke? Have I gone mad? No, I have not gone mad. I have just made up my mind to chase God more desperately than I have ever done in my whole life this year. I have a sense of urgency about it. So help me PapaGod, I am taking up permanent residency in a new country. It's called Christ. I am going to live in Him and He is going to live in me. And THAT is what is going to give you a new wife. Just that it will still be moi. *smiling mischievously*.
