His Side of the story....
The Man Who finds a wife finds a Treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord. - Proverbs 18:22 (NLT)
It was New year’s Eve 2009 and I had gone out to support one of my friends who had an event space called Redeye Lounge, As I walked in the place it didn’t take long at all for me to notice Jessica as she had recognized a girl that was in our entourage and had exchanged pleasantries with her. I gave it a few minutes and walked over to her and said to her – you Know you are “MY WIFE”? Literally that was the first thing that came to my mind; we ended up hanging out and dancing together most of the night and at the end of the night exchanged contact information.
In the next year to come I was more reserved and didn’t party as much as Jessica, I was more of an easy going person and Jessica was heavy in the entertainment Scene and party planning, My two close friends Tony Odeghe and Ahmed Aminu Kadiri even nick named her “hip-hop Hurray”. We would hang out and it was casual and over time just remained friends and eventually lost contact with each other.
In 2012 at a New Year’s Eve service at Christ Embassy church in Dallas, I ran into Jessica and we exchanged greetings and had small talk, as it turns out over the next few visits to Christ Embassy, I discovered Jessica had given her life to Christ and was different from the “hip-hop hurray” girl I had met, she had matured into her own. This time I didn’t make any moves to approach her we would just occasionaly exchange greetings. On the Baby dedication Sunday of Tony Odgehe’s daughter Jessica comes up to me after Church and asks for my phone number, in the next few days we went out on a date and continued dating after that.
As we started dating Jessica wanted to change a few things about me and I let her know she would have to accept me as I am as well as God’s Plan for my life and her life as God has designed and not our design.
We took some time apart from dating, I missed Jessica and on a faithful night during that break I was home and Jessica called. It was late, she comes over and I see her and the look in her eyes when she saw me as well after a break of about 6 weeks and at that very moment I knew I was going to ask Jessica to be my wife for real this time.
In 2013 we made it official, we started dating and taking steps to grow in the relationship with one another, even did pre-martial counseling before any idea of proposing and on September 25th , 2015 – I took the next step, I proposed to Jessica asking her to spend the rest of her life with me and be MY WIFE – SHE SAID YES …..
