God’s Special Gift To Me By Kachi
For me, it was certainly not love at first sight. The first time I spoke to Chris was on the 2nd of October 2011 but I sincerely did not take notice of him only that i saw he was really black and I was wondering. But the thought died there same self-hour and I forgot about him. I mean who would not? I had loads of work on my desk.
Ok days passed, 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks and he didn’t see me in church again so he gave me a call. He actually went hunting for my number from the follow up team as he wanted to follow up “his new student” so he gave me a call on the 30th of October asking my whereabouts and I told him i had been attending some other church and had gone on weekend visits to see my family so i just attended church with my family. Well that call made the difference of a lifetime. We spoke for over 2 hours and i sincerely was not tired. We talked about different things and I was happy but no feelings still attached. My aunt kept calling me and the response for over 2 hours was “Aunty am coming, am on the phone”. As soon as I came out of my room she said this kind of call sef. I was like “it’s just one boy in church that wants to know where i have been for the past 3 weeks” and she SERIOUSLY cleared her throat….
Well, by the next Sunday I was in church and “my follow up student leader” was not. I went to join the technical unit that Sunday and little did I know that Chris belonged to the same technical unit. I found out the next Sunday and there was this wide grin on his face like “What are you doing here?” Well I returned a polite smile and the story starts from here. He never kept his eyes off me but I always just brushed that aside. Each time I entered the technical room he would whisper “You look nice”. Now as much as I was going to serve God, anytime he didn’t whisper those words as I was getting into the technical room which rarely ever happened, I looked at myself again to check if everything was in place (eyes closed).
Now on the 8th of December, he personally came to my department in Uni to invite me for his graduation dinner. When I met him outside of my department, he gave me a side hug and I sincerely felt shivers and really shy. Well I told him that I was not coming for his dinner. But he didn’t stop there, he persuaded, persisted and I gave the answer “I’d think about it”. Well I really did think about it and that one dinner culminated in subsequent dinners. It was on this same day he told me he really liked me and wanted something serious. I was like biko lets just be friends and he was just smiling. Chai, my bobo—- perfect game planner. I went for the dinner, he was smiling, he was happy and he thanked me numerous times for coming…..
Well, the road was rough for Chris, I really made it tough but he was persistent. Overly persistent. What he saw in 2011 I never saw until late 2012. But he kept at it. Sincerely when God is involved in something, He arranges things (Baby we know that yea….). Well just a quick confession, I looked forward to those little avenues to get angry with him cos the makeup always ended with McDonalds breakfast wrap. I couldn’t trade it for anything
Behind his darkness and blackness is a heart that is completely white. He is beautiful if I can use that to describe him. My matter, my confidant, my best friend, my bobo, words are few. You stand as a colossus by me and you make life so beautiful. You never judge me or fault me. You respect me and you speak kindly to me. You never feel it’s out of place to apologise to me and you honour me. You understand me completely and I never felt it was you but feelings are really not right some of the time. You consciously make it a responsibility to see to it that am happy. With all sense of humility, I thought I was intelligent until I met you. Your brain is blessed like I always say to you. What more could I ask for? Our love is unique, our love is special because sincerely love was made for us and only fairy tales come close enough. I am blessed with the best; you are the ying to my yang.
I always wanted someone who would be my priest, my prophet, my protector and my provider. Having understood that anyone and everyone could be my protector and provider but not every or anyone could be my priest or prophet. I am grateful to God that first you are a lover of God and you stand as a spiritual head in my life. Together we have built our faith and our friendship and I can boldly say that in Him we live, move and have our being.
I am convinced that the rest of our lives together would be beautiful, am convinced we are set for marital bliss and am convinced that God led me to you because He knew you would be taking over the demands of my life because He knows I couldn’t have gotten anything better. I sincerely love you and I am proud to be Mrs Christopher Jumbo.
Awww, we wish Kachi and Chris a blissful marital life as they tie the knot soonest.
