For one, the bride is not even British and every other thing that came along with that seemed to be overlooked and embraced. Perhaps, someone fought or had to fight the good fight of faith to have something so different be so gloriously celebrated.
In blessed memory of Princess Diana, she was her own strong personality the Monarchy had to crack. Bringing her passion for people and fashion into an environment with high walls of protocol and panache, she broke free for the likes of Kate Middleton and Meghan Merkle to have a smooth transition to being their own persons while adopting the royal styles. … More The Royal Wedding: Groundbreaking History
One of many captivating moments was the infusion of the Afro pop world into the service. From the sermon to the choir rendition – lovely is an understatement. Bishop Curry delivered a meaningful and inspiring sermon in which he discussed the power of love. “Imagine if love is the way… When love is the way, we will let justice roll down in… We’d actually treat each other like we are actually family.” And family is what the world needs. It is how the home needs to perceive itself, not pulled apart by differences in culture, beliefs, age, skin color and other biases. … More The Royal Wedding: Between God & Man
Say you love me to my face
I’m needing more than your embrace
Just say you want me, that’s all it takes
Heart’s getting torn from your mistakes
‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you might
Babe, it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away … More “Say You Love Me”
“If you love me, keep my commandment”.
Isn’t that what we all wish true love would mean or do for us? To appreciate love and the sacrifices made. To know that even while we are away, love still remembers and celebrates what was once a burning desire in our hearts.
Jesus Christ said, “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” … More Empty Tomb

Have you ever wondered how sweet the mystery is that a fountain never runs dry?
Never gets old, wanting more of that jetting beauty,
The gush of waters, never tired, never diminished, unreserved.
If love were a fountain, gushing unreserved desire, how willing are you to accept it?
Seeing, knowing, assured, yet it gets old and we’ve place a tag on it.
The essence is lost only because true love is at no financial implication
Yet we let it slide so easily because it came so easily. … More Fountain of Love
“If the fish and the bird falls in love, where would they live?” he asks her. “I’ve heard this is the irony of true love, pathetic. But with true love, we will change the course of our destiny and be happy for as long as we both shall live”. … More The fish who loved a bird
“Come with me my love and our fates we will cheat. Come to this enchanted place where the sea and sky meet.”
Ariyike turns around with a smile. It has been almost a month since she’s hoped to run into him again. Since the last time she didn’t meet him where she left him. She thinks she recognizes that voice. And she is right. It is him; her ‘unconcealed desire’.
“She smiles”, he declares, holding his hand over his chest in that way that reveals how relieved he is that she welcomes him this time. … More The fish who loved a bird
Without a lover is his arms, what else is a man to do?
People often shroud their fears in words,
Relationship status may change, but our fears remain.
People often falter on the slippery slopes of relationship and we often lose ourselves
But let the one who is lost find his way back. … More The power of unrequited love
Come, let’s celebrate the sanctity of love
Here she comes, looking like a goddess
My love’s innocent beloved
She appears at my door like full moon
Come, let’s forget our differences and celebrate what binds us together
Your love has caused me pain
Like a dagger through my heart
But maybe that’s my destiny
To love a man who can never belong completely to either one of us
But we can at least hope together
While we celebrate the sanctity of the love we have. … More My Love’s Beloved
