Dear Future Husband


Hey Big Head,

How are you doing?

I hope you’ve had a good day and I hope that when you open this letter, you smile, thank God and think of me.

So, down to business.

I’m trying to figure out the right word that can describe my feelings when I think about you. When I find the word, I’ll tell you.

I know I’m excited but I know I’m also confident. This confidence is because when I think of you, my heart swells in delight of the gift made for me.

God’s gift to me.

I don’t have much to ask but this is my desire,

Let’s serve God together.

Let’s live in His love and light together.

Amour et Lumière Toujours!

Babe, I want you to love God fearlessly, love Him recklessly, love Him more than you love me because only then would you love me like my Father in Heaven has always loved me.

You can’t come close to God’s love for me.

I can’t come close to God’s love for you.

But as long as we’re radiating God’s love.

The Home we’ll build would be right.

It would be perfect.

It’ll be God’s.

Ah yes, that word that describes what I feel? Blessed.

Boy, I can’t wait to meet you.

And I’m tired of writing letters

It don do.

Come and carry your wife.



Now and Forever

Tomi Adesina
