FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW…

We were on a trip out of town. We travelled in three vehicles. Out of all the drivers, I was the only one who knew the place that we were heading to. No matter how much the other drivers sped, they would have to slow down and wait for me to take the lead. They do not know the particular […]

RUNNING THROUGH DARK PLACES

While growing, I hated running picking things up for Dad, Mum or siblings late in the night from their rooms. Once Daddy says, “Temi, bring my radio from the room”, fear grips my heart. It became worse when someone close died and I would imagine that the ghost can appear to me while alone. If you are plagued with the […]

THE TRAP TO AVOID

As we left the meeting, a dear protégé of mine said to me, “Sir, it takes pastoral grace to do what you did and still minister the truth to those young ones”. I was to teach a large crowd of teenagers but they were distracted and noisy. I said to him, “Sir when I saw how distracted and noisy they […]

THINGS A FATHER MUST NEVER FORGET (4)

My dad gets to play pranks on us at times. One afternoon, he called and requested that he needed to see me. I went to meet up with him in his office. He gave that look that showed he had something important to say. He then said, “My son, I have a child outside” (meaning another woman has a baby […]

THINGS A FATHER MUST NEVER FORGET (3)

My lovely wife was carrying our first baby. I travelled for about 48 hours out of town. When I returned, Irewamiri said, “Can you imagine your daughter?” (a reference to the baby in the womb) I was inquisitive. She said “She had not been kicking for the past 48 hours. I tried all I could. I talked to her. I […]

THINGS A FATHER MUST NEVER FORGET (2)

I got to the office pretty early that morning. I spotted a man at a drinking parlour close by drinking early that morning. I would have walked away but I saw him with a boy that could not be more than three years old. I confronted the man. I asked him why he would want to introduce his son to […]

THINGS A FATHER MUST NOT FORGET

Each day I made it a point of duty to say words of blessing over my household both in private and after our devotions. The day Danielle knelt in front of me without being told made me know the weight of what I have been doing. Dear Father, make it a point of duty to bless your spouse and your […]

“IKU PO MI NU” (Death Vomitted Me)

As we drove home I asked Irewamiri, “Did you pick the lesson as he shared the testimony?” She said, “Yes I did”. There is a lesson I kept sharing for a while, “You do not fight thoughts with thoughts. You cancel and erase thoughts with words”. Someone dear to me was stuck in traffic and thoughts came to him that, […]

HOLIDAYS WERE NOT HOLIDAYS

During childhood, our holidays had a standard routine. On most days, we would resume reading at the guest room in our neighbour’s hospital by 8 am and we would not leave until 12 noon. There were sums in New General Mathematics Textbooks that must be solved before the holiday was over. We could only play after we had observed our […]
