|LOVE… The only reason there’s so much happiness in this image…|
Dang, who’s ready for this week’s adorable True Love story!!!!
Come December 30, 2017, lovebirds, Life Akindoyin & Oluwafemi Oyewunmi will exchange the marital vows in the presence of family, friends and loved ones.
I’m so thrilled to be sharing our beautiful love story, it’s a long one but I’ll endeavour to make it as brief as I can.
|When you Love what you have.. You have everything you need.|
crossed paths with my Sweetheart for the first time during the RCCG
annual convention 2012 My friend (Ife Akeju) and I were assigned to
assist the leaders at the Junior church Auditorium at Redemption Camp.
He walked pass and didn’t even notice me but I saw him and felt this
calmness within me that lasted for minutes while I was seated.
|Be with the type of person that makes forever seem too short|
suddenly regained my composure and I quizzed myself? Life was that you?
Yeah I know I usually prove strong lady Lol. I said never. A guy is
supposed to be the one liking me and not the other way round. Who is
this guy sef?
He was so caught up in the activities and I
eventually didn’t get to see him that day again. The next day I saw him
and felt same thing and I told my friend that I wasn’t going there
anymore. She teased me saying Life has finally found Love o. I playfully
knocked her off but then she said seriously can we pray about him?
|I just want to make you happy… With a Lot of Love and a shitload of orgasms|
|For she had eyes…and chose me…|
|You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest and most beautiful person I have ever known and even that is an understatement….|
was taken aback, I said Pray ke? In how many days? This guy didn’t even
see me. Moreso he was even looking rough bcos of the environment so I
said no jare he is not “The One”.
On Saturday of the Convention, my friend and I moved to the gathering of the Pastors Seeds at the Youth Centre.
Please Note; we were not moving up and down looking for Men oh. We only attend programs.
|..I want the parts that you’ve tried to throw away. The parts that you were convinced no one could ever love….|
|It was always you…….|
|Life isn’t perfect, but it has its perfect moments…..|
back to my story, on getting to the Youth centre, I saw him but this
time around, we met through one of my Baby Sisters, Peace (Hehehe my
honourable CBM, now grown) and my adopted Brother, Tobi Aniyi (Lol).
both dragged Oluwafemi to me and said meet our dearest Sister.
Oluwafemi shook my hand and said Wow so pretty. You all smile alike in
your family. I smiled and said thank you.
They both winked and
left us. Still holding my hand, he said he functions with the Protocol
Dept and can he introduce me to his team?
In my mind I was like Chai he don see fine girl o. Lol.
|Two People in Love, alone, isolated from the whole world|
|Feels good to hear some say Take care, feels even better to hear someone say I’ll take care of you….|
|Maybe home is nothing but two arms holding you tight when you’re at your worst|
On getting there, I realized I knew everyone there one way or the other. It’s a big body of Christ.
went for my youth service October 2012 few days after my Convocation.
At the Orientation camp, during the Career talk, we had PWC
(Pricewaterhousecoopers) staff who were called on to speak with us. Lo
and behold, it was Oluwafemi.
I was so excited. The little me ran to go
and meet him and he was like wooow how are you? I didn’t know I will
find you easily. More so i didnt have your number.
|He calls me beautiful.. Like its my name…|
|For it was Love at First Sight, at Last Sight and at Ever and Ever Sight.|
|I have Looked at you in a Thousand ways.. And I have loved you in each|
He introduced me
to his colleagues as a friend from PF (Pastors Seeds Family) and
brought out a nylon of snacks. I was shy and I think I told him I was
fasting or something like that. Lol.
I eventually collected it but I didn’t eat it right away.
got talking and found out so many things about each other that day. I
got to know that he has 3 younger Sisters, so little wonder he cared for
me like his younger Sister. He even gave me some pocket money before
Then I started to pray. From our conversation, he was
really sounding like “HIM”. Born again, focused, caring amongst other
amazing traits. Of course I pray daily for my future, home, career and
everything so I just asked God to take over and make it work in his own
|Every girl has her best friend, boyfriend and true love. But you’re really lucky if you’re all the same person…..|
|Holding hands with you is like a promise that , if even for a
brief moment or a few hours, we don’t have to face the world alone…..
|Forever is just a start, forever is you and me!!!|
|Not a girl of a boy… But a Lady of a Man…|
Fast forward x 2.
So we kept communicating through various medium and we see frequently during our monthly Holy Ghost Service.
He started calling EVERYDAY and I never got tired of hearing him.
got closer, meeting my family and friends and vice versa. I never
stopped praying and the love was growing. It was like a father rubbing
my back calmly saying well done my daughter I’m with you. That was kind
of the Peace I had from the moment our friendship started unfolding.
then one day, hmmm one day, on his birthday actually, so at midnight
after wishing him and praying with him, he asked if I could celebrate
his day with him by taking me out. That was unforeseen. I haven’t gone
out before and I saw it as a “date” which I felt was for people in
relationship. So I declined. I noticed he wasn’t happy but then he said
it was fine.
|For me… There’s only You….|
|Where you go I will go, Where you stay I would stay, Your people shall be my people, and your God my God.|
Over the night i had a taught on it so i called him
to accept his invitation. I could tell he was happy. I dressed up and we
met around 10am.
………………………………… I want
to spend the rest of my life with you. I have never been in love as much
as this. I’m not rushing you. I just want you to know my mind. I see
where God is taking me to and I want to know if you will support me,
walk with me. I’m ready to love you and yours extremely. We can grow
together and i will also support you in everything. He said softly.
|Lucky is the man who is the first love of a Woman.. But Luckier is the woman who is the last love of a Man|
|Tell her why you love her Not how much you love her……|
was new to me and I replied, you are my very first and I really don’t
know how a relationship goes but I will definitely give my best. So help
me God. He kept saying thank you thank you thank you. He was in high
He pulled me closer and placed my head on his shoulders and kept saying thank you Jesus. Oluwa ese. Jesu ese.
looked up and told him can we be friends for now? He said no problem he
can wait for as long as I want until I’m ready. And that was how the
friendship started that led us to where we are today.
I bless God all the way and I have no regrets as to how it all turned out.
you are sweet. Love is genuine with you. Thank you for proving that
good men do exist. I know that together we will bring out the best in
each other. I will not lead you astray.
I’m always proud of you.
And you are the best of the best. You call me your safe place and that
gives me joy. Your Faith in God is second to none. I really love that.
My delight, my dream come true, I will follow and support you wherever
God calls you to.

We met at the place of service.
It was our
usual Annual August Convention that year, I was at duty post in Junior
Church auditorium coordinating the programme. We received news that
Mummy G.O has instructed all Pastor’s Seed Family to report in the
Junior Church to assist the teachers. PSF members were divided into
different teams and Life Akindoyin was part of the programme team. We
worked together with no special introduction or attachment. In fact, I
did not notice her as I was busy coordinating. On the Saturday of the
Convention, we all gathered at the Youth Centre for PSF meeting where
her sister (Peace Akindoyin) introduced me to her who I met through
We became good friends. We chatted about
ourselves and the family. We all separated after the Convention. I did
not bother getting her number, I only felt we can always catch up in
camp when we come for our monthly Holy Ghost service meetings.
remembered on the 21st October 2012, I received a friend
request on Facebook at 00:00 GMT I was working on my computer. I decided
to do a background check as usual. Then, I saw her charming face. I
added her of course and sent a direct message (slide into her DM). I
wrote you’re welcome here and she replied. The chat lasted for about 4
hours and the rest is history.
|It’s not being in love that makes me happy, it’s the person that I’m in love with that does….|
How we got here. By the Groom
never knew camp baby like I usually call her would end up as the love
of my life. My attention was on someone else until I decided to consult
God. I had my struggles but when I received the clear instruction on
her, everything changed.
She’s was consistent in our friendship, she
stood out of others even with her simple innocent smile. She’s adorable,
spiritual depth, appealing, enchanting, engaging, intelligent,
selfless, caring, and most importantly for me she’s best at nurturing my
vision. She’s my number one fan, encourager, developer, cultivator, and
We’ve had enjoyable and difficult times yet standing
strong together. People say love is blind but I can see clearly the
Godly virtues in her character, she was tested and trusted. I can go all
the way for her even with my last breath. She completes me. The future
can only get better and with JESUS as our foundation, the sky is only
the beginning of our joining.
I can’t keep calm!
I’m getting married to the woman that lights up my world!!
I have truly found favor in the sight of God!!!
|Some people make you laugh a little louder, smile a little brighter, and live a little better…..|
How we decided that we should be together forever!
It was her birthday and I asked if I could take her on a date for
dinner. She answered in the affirmative. I secretly invited her sisters
and few close friends to the dinner. She was so surprised to see
Fast forward, everyone was allowed to give a speech and
when it was my turn, I looked at her and said you’re the best thing that
happened to me after giving my life to Christ. You’re my best friend
and why don’t you spend the rest of your life with me.
Then I popped the question. Ohunerimitodaju please will you marry me? She was confused at first and ran away but slowly returned to me TO ACCEPT THE RING AND SAID A LOUD “YES!”
|Together, forever and a day more!|
