Please Don't Just Say "Happy Wedding Anniversary"

I'm so stoked! I was at just the perfect church service this morning! Pastor B was just on point! She spoke my heart! Yes, there might be "rubble" in my life; divine promises yet to be fulfilled but still, I'm alive, my health is back and my MGM and I are celebrating 23 years of marriage! Glory be to God! People, we must learn to focus on where God's final destination for us. Not on the 'Keke maruwas' of life trying to jam our motocar and derail us! 

Anyway, you will agree that 23 Years of Marriage is not beans and My MGM and I know this all by ourselves. That's why today is such a testimony to God's faithfulness over our lives. Twenty-three years! Our personal 'BHenz' brand' is still going strong! I myself am amazed that we still stand. No, really. I mean if I told you it's been all sweetness and light, would you believe me? Please don't be carried away by all the stuff you see on social media. Do you know how easy it is to type 'lol' while you are crying inside lying sick on your bed? Anyway, let me leave that matter. 

All I can say is this: Hand over heart, I have lived a wonderful 23 years with my MGM and I look forward to twenty-three more with him and only him by God's grace. And yes we have been blessed with three truly wonderful children and in a flash I would take a bullet for any four of them BUT if you have known me for a while, you will also know there have been times I would have gladly pulled an "Oscar Pistorios" number on my husband! Lol!  And I know same goes for him. 

I have so many favourite photos of BHENZ but these are my top 7 today!
Truth is, no matter the quantum of love you go in to marriage with, that love will be tested and trials will come. But I do believe our love continues to be refined in the process and that we will always overcome these trials. Not by our might but because of God!  The One who has watched over us all these years! Today, that's why we are grateful. That's why we are so thankful. 

So,  I would just like to ask you to help us appreciate God!  Please don't just wish us "Happy Wedding Anniversary".  Close your eyes, lift your hands and say "Lord, I thank you for keeping MGM and Salt's marriage. Thank you for their home and family! Blessed be your name!"

And then spend another moment raising up all the marriages you know. Including yours. Let God be the centre in those homes. Let His wisdom prevail. Let His agape love reign. And let His say be final. In Jesus Christ's name. Amen. 

Thank you if you prayed. Now come, join my MGM and I! Let's sing Imela unto our Lord, the God of Love who is Love!! And whose love has kept our marriage till this day!


When I think upon your goodness;
And Your faithfulness each day
I'm convinced it's not because I am worthy -
to receive the kind of love that You give.
But I'm grateful for your mercy,
and I'm grateful for your grace
And because of how You've poured out Yourself,
I have come to sing this song out in praise

Imela, Imela (Thank You! Thank You!)
Okaka, Onyekeruwa (Great and Might creator of the world)
Imela, Imela, (Thank You! Thank You!)
Eze m Oh (My King)


  1. May God continue to bless your marriage!

  2. May God continue to bless your marriage!
