Dear Ugo,

I am beyond sorry for your loss. Words can’t express how deeply sorry I am. Receiving your letter was both shocking and exciting, but the message within really broke my heart. 
I know he was a really good guy from the way you described him and I know you loved him very much. I wish I was there to comfort you, but I know Holy Spirit is the greatest comforter and He’ll do that for me.

I can remember when you broke up with me, I felt like I’d never get over you, but I did. Time heals all wounds Ugo, give yourself time to heal. 

I know that God is in control even though it doesn’t seem so and this is the best time to go to him because he loves you and he cares about you. Go to God the same way you wrote your last letter to me, go to Him like a long lost friend and lover and tell him all about your grief. We can never know why Bolupe died. God’s ways are unsearchable, you know how he says in Isaiah 55 that his ways aren’t our ways and his thoughts aren’t like ours. All I know is that He can mend your broken heart and fix you back up, He’ll even make you better than you were before if you make Him the love of your life. Hold unto God’s promises for you in the Bible and I am certain that everything is going to work out for your good.

At least you have a consolation that Bolupe is with Jesus in Heaven, he’s probably rejoicing and singing with the angels serving God for ever and ever. I see no reason why you should let his death hold you back from serving God when that is what he now does 24/7. What do you think Bolupe will want you to do at this point? 

Love,
Aina

Isaiah 55:8-9 KJV

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord . [9] For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Not everything in life will go in the way that we originally planned. There’s someone up there who controls everything that goes on down here and He has said that His ways are higher than ours. Stop trying to make things work when they don’t want to work, God sees everything and he’s in absolute control. Sit back, relax and let him take the wheel. His plans for you are always better than those you have for yourself.

1/2 YEAR POST

“You’ve changed” she said to him. 

“It was bound to happen eventually” he replied with a shrug. 

“No, as in, seriously, you’ve changed”

He gave a nervous laugh “What can I say? It’s the Lord’s doing”

“Don’t do that!” she exclaimed slapping his shoulder. 

“What?” he asked playfully with a smile. 

“Nna! You sent Ini away” 

Nna’s smile faded and he sighed turning away from his twin sister. 

“Call him and tell him you were joking”

Nna’s expression hardened “I will do no such thing” he said shaking his head. 

“Ini has been your friend since forever”

“Ini hasn’t always been a good friend” Nna reminded her. 

“Nobody is perfect” 

“Don’t you understand?”

“I don’t! Make me understand! What did Aunty Obiageli do to you in her house that will make you tell your childhood friend never to associate with you again” 

“Aunty Obiageli didn’t do anything to me, I chose to be like this”

“Why?” Nne asked her brother. He was like a complete stranger, she didn’t understand her twin again. 

“I got to realise while staying with Aunty Oby, that the way I’ve been living my life” he shook his head “Nne I’ve not been living right and I want that to change, I got to realise in Aunty Oby’s house that Jesus can help me change, he is the change I need”

“No problem, change Ini too now!” Nne exclaimed. 

“You don’t think I’ve tried? You think it was easy for me to tell my best friend that I’m done with him? Nne, Ini doesn’t want to change and it won’t be possible for me to change and still be friends with him!”

“So you’re done with him and your guys, just like that?”

“You can’t follow God and still follow the crowd” Nna pressed his lips in a firm line and turned towards the house, he’d left the tap running in the kitchen.

I’m baaaack! Who missed me? True cheese; you can’t follow God and still follow the crowd, I learnt from experience. It doesn’t have to be as drastic as Nna’s, but you will have to cut off friends who dull your fire for God if you truly want to walk with and work for God. 

Anyways, welcome to July everyone! Hope you had a ball in June. 
So I’m on Summer break. Yay! And I sincerely don’t know how my posting schedule is going to be. I’m getting tired of EXP #1 and I’m going to be focusing on re-arranging and completing it before the end of the month.

I would love to post everyday if I could, but I’m not always connected to the internet. But don’t worry too much, my next post will be on Monday.

Praise. 

It hurts me so much that I was so blinded by my self righteousness, that my judgemental nature didn’t allow me to get to know you early enough. 

When I finally got to know you we had limited time, none of us knew. I fell in love with you and your naughty beautiful self, although such words never came out of my mouth, what came out instead were numerous threats to cause you physical harm, of course you always knew I didn’t mean you any harm. 

But it’s too late for us now, you’ve gone and all I can do is to try to hold onto what could have been and memories of our time together.

Oh God! It’s Monday tomorrow!!! 

Have a nice week ahead!

FOR TYPHUN

Falling in love with you is one of the easiest things I’ve ever had the pleasure of doing. 

I remember when I first saw you, I only knew about you from my conversations with your brother because… well you’re his brother. Your brother had told me you were coming over and I was so excited, we were friends from afar off in a way, so I was thrilled you were coming around. I didn’t get to be properly introduced to you like I would have wanted and we were so weird and awkward at first to the extent that it became our thing. 

I just admire you, for so many reasons I can’t put down here, I remember watching you walk one day and imagine I was in all those movies where the girl is in a dark alley and scared for her life and I thought you’re just the kind of person I’d like to meet under such circumstances. Do I sound crazy? I don’t even know where that came from BTW.

You’re like this really cool big brother figure and I just love your company, I always have new jewellery when I leave, if not that then I probably bullied something edible out of you, hence your nickname for me: The taker.
