Flashbacks....

Prov 9 vs 6: Leave your simple ways behind, and begin to live; learn to use good judgment." (NLT)

When I was much younger, I created a list of things I wanted in my future husband. Looking back, its so funny that I decided to share. This list is in no particular order....


Writing

1) Must be Nigerian
2)Must be 6ft or taller
3)Preferably the last born of his parents
4) Must be an equal balance between Naija and American ( Not so ajebutter that if we both went to 9ja, we would end up kidnapped and sold into slavery...but also not so razz that I couldn't take him anywhere)
5)Must have Masters or higher...
6)Must not talk more than I do
7)Must be masculine yet soft and sensitive
8)Must love all types of music
9)MUST!!! have nice hands
10)Must be a great dresser.

.....You can stop laughing now!

Looking back at this list, even though I applaud myself for being disciplined enough to know what I wanted...or thought I wanted...I can't help but laugh at my naivete. I notice that I did not write anything about love...God...ethics...family or even maturity; things I would later crave in a man as I lived and got more mature.


Thankful that God is not the answerer of foolish prayers..lol

haha...look similar to my lis...sometime prayers are not answered or delayed because we pray amiss james 4:3...but yeah definitely as we grow priorities begin to change

Lol. Love the list. Funny thing is I wrote an article recently about the same thing on Eroinspirations.

God certainly doesn't answer some prayers. :-)

Lol.The Nigerian-American part is so Hilarious!
I'm sure you have more than your heart desired. God knows how to do His thing. We best leave Him to it.
Cheers!
