Hey Lovelies!!! It’s Love Story Wednesday. I am happy to finally share this Lifemi story with you, although I wish they let me do it way earlier though! 3 weeks ago while editing the true love story of Life and her beau, Femi ( one of the gentlemen who made my list of most eligible bachelors in RCCG) for their wedding website my mind flashed back to a few years ago when Life would write OLUWAFEMIJUEVERYBODY clouded with lots of lovestruck emojis as her BBM status message.
Back then I was a little amused by it coz I used to wonder what it meant, not until she gisted me back in 2014 about this beautiful love story that was still brewing at the time. I am so happy they found each other, this two are sure going to make a power couple and I really mean that.
Let’s read the couple’s account of how their love story unfolded
Life’s version of their Love story~ Lifemi 2017
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.
|Double applause for my damsel…You are perfect for me!|
I 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.
|These two hearts beat as one! Lifemi 2017|
I 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?
|Loving you is like food to my soul…Lifemi 2017|
|I am yours and you are mine|
|Take my hand and let’s walk into forever together…Lifemi 2017|
I 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.
|In your eyes, I see the future and oh! what a joy that I have you in it till eternity|
|You see that atlas behind us….we are going to be taking territories together for Jesus|
|True love is like a game of chess, I’m keeping my queen forever!|
So 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).
They 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.
|I want to be by your side through it all…Lifemi 2017|
|When you smile, I smile…Lifemi 2017|
|This right here is my whole life….My Love and My Life!|
On getting there, I realized I knew everyone there one way or the other. It’s a big body of Christ.
I 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 wow how are you? I didn’t know I will find you easily. More so I didn’t have your number.
|I have his heart…he has mine|
|This is how sweet our smiles would be forever|
|My Darling, Love is all I see when I look at you|
He introduced me to his colleagues as a friend from PSF (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.
We 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 leaving.
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 divine way.
|God gave me this beauty to have and to hold forever….|
|I’m more confident with you in my world, I have everything I need to be more!|
|It’s the little things you do that warm my heart…|
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.
We 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.
And 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 a relationship. So I declined. I noticed he wasn’t happy but then he said it was fine.
|Smile for me….|
|And when it’s all said and done, it’s gonna be you and I till the Lord comes for the saints|
Over the night I thought about it and the next morning I called him to accept his invitation. I could tell he was happy. I dressed up and we met at about 10 am.
………………………………… 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.
|Our love is deeply rooted in the love of the one whose love is never failing|
|All of me loves all of you!|
All 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 spirits.
He pulled me closer and placed my head on his shoulders and kept saying thank you, Jesus. Oluwa ese. Jesu ese.
I looked up and asked him if we can 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.
Oluwafemi, 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.
|My love, the thought of you and I forever feels like having a slice of heaven on earth…LIFEMI 2017|
|It’s my joy to have you walk this journey with me forever|
Femi’s Side of the Story ~ Lifemi 2017
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 Oluwatobiloba Aniyi.
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.
I remember vividly it was 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.
|Your smile brightens my day much more than the sun! Lifemi 2017|
|He’s my love, She’s my Life!|
I never knew camp baby like I usually call her would end up being 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 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 believer.
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 favour in the sight of God!!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 everyone.
How Femi proposed
Fast forward, everyone was allowed to give a speech at her birthday dinner earlier this year 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 I would want you to spend the rest of your life with me.
Then I asked the question that started our journey to forever. 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!|
