16 Nov Soila & Peter: September 9th 2017
Since I went to Dubai in 2009 I was focused only on work and living my life. I didn’t see myself getting married especially in a foreign country like Dubai where most ladies are believed to love money and men are considered players, getting married was never a thing in my menu until one day on September 2014 I visited the House of grace and restoration Dubai church where Soila serves as an usher. The moment I entered the door she welcomed me with a smile filled with genuineness, love and warmth, the most beautiful smile that expressed how humble and how happy she was. That curve instantly created an attachment that would otherwise have been impossible. It’s one smile that I consider beautiful. She had a comely figure which was stem-thin curvilinear waist but that didn’t surprise me as much as the saffron tint to her complexion. I smiled back and was ushered to a corner seat away from her! The service was brief though I was uneasy it ended just fine. I was going to work later but I had one mission to look for “that usher” and have a glance of her, too bad she was nowhere to be found, I told myself maybe she had another calling in church and was busy accomplishing it but no! She wasn’t showing up, my time to report to work was due and I had to drive for like 20 minutes. I didn’t know anyone hence I couldn’t dare ask anyone about her, probably she had more crushes that would see me as a potential hazard so I kept it to myself. The week was long and I kept asking myself who she was, where she was, what she was doing and who was with her, I even felt some stupid jealousy of a human who didn’t even remember my existent. Thank God Friday arrived and it was time to go to church. That day I got to church on time even before her. I wasn’t ushered in but I calmly sat in the last row where my chance to see her would be high but just then we were told to move to the front rows. I managed to move back later and sat at the back rows and had a great moment of even greeting her and got her name, I went on social and searched her and took my time stalking her. Time went on and I just played my game “under the waters”. I acted as a normal “church brother” as they always call us and didn’t want to show her my feelings and attractions towards her. On November she went for vacation to Kenya, I was so worried that she might meet some guy who will not hesitate to vibe her and there she is gone. Thank God she came back on December and seemed single and free. I didn’t want to waste my time so one day I asked her where she lived and she calmly told me but it was a city far from the church. I was concerned how she gets to church and she explained how she commutes. It was a long way and it’s a real sacrifice. I saw a committed lady who can do the same to our relationship, I requested her if I can be picking her and dropping her after church but she didn’t want to disturb me. I started working on our friendship first which was easy since we were both so natural on it. We became good friends and our dating started so naturally. I remember our first date was supposed to be on 14th Feb 2016 but due to work we pushed it to 20th Feb 2016, we talked for hours and our likes and dislikes were more the same. The first statement “I love you” came from me on the same day, 20th February 2016 and she was shy. Since then the statement is a must say per day. We started meeting more often as boyfriend girlfriend until we planned to go home together and meet her parent on December 2016 and officiate things. I had a chance to give pay “Iseret” (the first payment you give to a maasai family to show that you are interested with their daughter). I also officially proposed to her on 15th December 2016 and now she was my fiancée. We planned for dowry and did it when still in Dubai, planned our wedding when still here. There were so many challenges especially us meeting, I remember I used to visit her thrice per week and I would sleep for maximum four hours. We worked on it and every free time we had we were working on our relationship, praying, training or just someplace together. It’s all by Gods grace that it has worked. Something we would not think as possible.
Not until I felt your sunshine,
Did I realize that I had been in the shade.
Not until I saw all your colors,
Did I realize that mine had faded.
Not until I heard your dreams,
Did I realize that I was still sleeping.
And not until I experienced my life with you,
Did I realize that I was barely Breathing.”
