25 YEARS LATER
I sat my handsome Diamond down to tell him his Birth Story….and guess what my son said..
“Wow, this will make a good movie” he said laughing
“Movie? Is that all you are going to say? I asked
“Yes!, or what were you expecting me to say Mum?
Emerald spoke instead… Emerald was already married with three kids, She named one of them Gold…. We were at her place in Dallas as Diamond just graduated as the best graduating student of his university., a Medical student. The dream I had for Gold…
“Mum, I told you this story telling was not necessary” Emerald said laughing “ But you said you wanted to clear your conscience, Well you have seen it now that your son doesn’t see it as anything, he even wants to make a movie out of it” Emerald said laughing
“Wait Big Sis, What was Mum expecting me do ? Like start crying and looking for a woman I don’t know… Mum, you are my mother…I don’t need to know whoever this Margaret is….She was just privileged to carry me in her womb, she is not my mother…” Diamond said walking to the Fridge to get himself a drink…
Diamond was a complete replica of Gold in character, he never took life too seriously… he had too much love, there were times I wondered if God put the Spirit of Gold into Diamond…My son Diamond had just graduated as a Medical student the day before and I felt it was necessary to tell him the truth about his birth, but here he was taking the matter so lightly….
“Mum, have you ever heard of surrogate mothers. This Magaret must have been my spiritual Surrogate mother.. God used her as a gate to bring me to the earth.. she was just a GATE…nothing more, but you ….Mum… You are the sweetest , loveliest, most beautiful mother of mine…Mama give me a peck and a smile….Mum, remember, I hate worries,I live everyday like my last…” Diamond said as he sat down to eat his pop corn and juice
Emerald and I looked at each other very shocked…
“ What? “ Diamond asked when he saw the surprises on our faces
”You just spoke like Gold” I shouted…
He laughed heartily and he said “ And I have always told you, God didn’t want you to miss Gold too much, so he still put a little Gold in your Diamond, You know how beautiful that combination is “ By this time, Diamond was already by my side giving me a peck when his father walked in…
“ Hey MISTER, How many times have I told to leave my wife’s cheek for me alone?” Henry said jokingly with a fake frown
“ The jealous man is back” Henry started chasing Diamond around Emerald’s living room and that sight was just beautiful. I looked around me and I thanked my God with all of my heart because he gave me strength to obey him, We had relocated to Houston Texas some years back, the same town God sent me from to go get back my husband…
Just like the dream Gold and I had, we had gone back to get our Missing Henry….The dream of over 25 years has manifested in a positive way …
No matter how bad your marriage has turned out, If you can Locate God, he can turn the worse case around in your favor… I was able to continue my ministry but with DISCRETION….My story has become my message, Like Isokene said, I went through my professional course to be a Professor in teaching others about Marriage, My name is BETTY and God has made my Life BETTER than it used to be, but I am still expecting His BEST, sing this song with me….”
“Who is like unto Thee
O Lord among the gods?
Who is like unto Thee
Glorious in holiness
Fearful in praises
Who is like unto Thee?
Who is like unto Thee”
God turned around my captivity and my life looks like a dream…Life is complex, but in all its complexities, it can not be smarter than the Very ONE who created it… Take your complex life back to God, your creator and let him Fix it….He fixed mine….I am a living Testimony…..If you have gone far away from him and you want to return back to him, Say this Short
“Dear Heavenly Father, I come before you this day with an open heart, Forgive me of my sins and have mercy on me. I accept Christ as my lord and Saviour. Repair my life and Home in Jesus name I pray….”
