We went for a burial,came back and hubby had to travelled again for outing service. I was the only one at home in that big house. 😢
After the days work, I decided to hang around so that I won’t feel lonely. But you know this thing has a mind of its own night refused to fall quick quick so I had to go home. Lot of thoughts and vain imaginations crept into my head..the corpse I saw at the burial, skghdj, wyrksbxm. Oh Lord in heaven!! My head began to swell…Satan, not again..It’s burial that I went for, I didn’t kill anybody nah😢. 😢. But, tbvh, the very song that came out of my mouth was “Odighi onye ozo na elu uwa, odighi onye ozo….” 😁 😁
When It was as if the song wasn’t working, I began to blame myself for not inviting my younger brother over. Atleast, that one knows how to ease tension with his laughter. But my saving grace was that there was light,I switched on the telly and tuned to Startimes Music and was shaking my butts rhythmically (allow me to become child of the world for today, thankio. 😂 ) amidst doing “unnecessary chores’, still, night refused to come. Hey God, which kain wahala be this nah? 😢.
It was at this point that I knelt down in the sitting room and asked God not to allow PHCN take the light. I reminded Him how I can’t even start a generator to save my life. I told Him if He does this I’d come back to testify.
Not long,night fell. The standing fan in passage adjacent my girl’s room started looking like a man standing with big head. (Abeg, don’t come and make my prayers of non-effect). Fiam, I switched on all the lights in the house: bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms, dinning, passage every every...in my mind I was like,” Waste baby, waste…the energy can waste but spare me the hypertension ” 😂.
Did I even remember food? Normally, I lose appetite when nobody is at home to eat with me. But don’t worry, I later ate.
When it was time to sleep, Me, sleep on that bed? Lie lie!!! I carried the foam and duvet to the sitting room… I was literally forcing myself not to sleep so I won’t wake up rather too early. You know nah, with all the tiredness I slept off. Guess when I woke up? 12:41pm. 😢😢 . I started watching movies till 4:52am yet sleep refused to come. Las las I woke up 7:50am.
Bottomline: I came to church late, walked majestically in the church auditorium beaming with all smiles that I can contain. Why?? They didn’t know all that happened to me last night.
Men and brethren, I’ve come to return all the glory to God, who kept me through the night and didn’t allow PHCN to take the light because it was so unusual of them these days to give light from afternoon till morning of the next day.
Don’t coman say I be fear fear because I will “kabash” for you.🙄.
