With this ring…

“Love is patient. Love is kind…”

β€” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV  

Dear Dream,

My graduation should have been one of the happiest days of my life. I had to work hard and suffer many sleepless nights. But even then, it was still not enough. At one point, i was denied the privilege to graduate but within twenty-four hours God had made it possible.

So you can just imagine that with such great accomplishment, my loving family and friends would have traveled from near and far just to celebrate with me on that momentous occasion. That day also had marked the anniversary of a special friendship and i was hoping i would have heard the ring of wedding bells.

Instead on that day, my heavy eye lids fought long and hard to hold back the tears as i had just discovered that the relationship i had happily been apart of for four years was only a lie.

I was not the only woman.

… to be continued

  1. Wow! Four years is quite a long spell to enventually find out you were taken for a ride. Such treacherous fellow deserves NO woman at all. Still I bet you would take that four years ride over marrying such a man which by the looks of it would be much worse.
    Lift those lovely, suave and precious hands in praise you got away from him. πŸ™‚
    Now I beseech you to go on praying fervently until by devine purpose mr. blessed and handsome turns right up and sweeps you off those lovely and tender feet.:) It could be TONIGHT!! πŸ™‚

    • @englishfun7 thank you for reading and commenting on my blog. I really appreciate your thoughts and sense of humour. My experience could have been worse. I am more grateful that I can walk away and be free. I have been sleeping well at nights and I have peace of mind. Forgiveness is key and because of it, I able to move forward. Singleness is a blessing and I am not rushing the journey.

  2. You beautiful woman!! You did not deserve that. And he certainly did not deserve you. Your mighty father shielded you valiantly. Cry torrents of tears of gratitude for that! Your writing is beautiful.
