1. Well done Ma,for your spiritual nurishment.
    A large door that leads to greater activity has been open to you.thanks a lot,God bless you more.

  2. Interesting! True love actually dwells on the strengths and not the weaknesses. This poem encapsulates just this.

  3. True love is unconditional and this poem said it all. I pray that God will help us show true love in our relationships. God bless you Aunty!!!

    • Yes, thats right, Joy!
      But the only unconditional and true love i know now is the love of my mother and Father.
      Thank you, Aunty Edith, for this beautiful poem.

  4. Good job ma..every morning, i ask my sef wat do i do?? Nd i jus remembered edith blog wich serves as d spiritual food to d soul..true love is loved, patience, understanding,and forgiving.

  5. Absolutely true. True love can only exist when respect and tolerance become the bedrock of a relationship.

    • Right, Martin! Some people don’t realize how important respect is in a relationship until it is too late. You have to insist on and prayerfully fight for it. Some one said, “Even if you’re putting sugar into my mouth, if there’s no respect, it will be like punishment to me.” (The sugar is meant to represent the height of sweetness. No matter how pleasurable everything else is, if there’s no respect, there’ll be no appreciation of them.)

    • Me? I’m still a learner oh! Lol! But you’re right, true love is selfless and forbearing. Bless you, Chinasa!

  6. Awesome! The poem being a love poem is completely romantic. It explores the love of a Husband (Richard) for his adorable Wife (Authy Edith) and the understanding, respect, sincerity, forgiving spirit, selflessness, consistency therein. The poet appreciates his willingness and desire to support and allow her opinions stand. As the poet highlights the consistency, permanence, altruism, of her husband’s love, she realizes with joy and Happiness that True Love is the engine behind all that.

  7. This love thing shaa… This one for me smiling!?Then i can imagine what the recipient’s reaction will be?.
    LESSON LEARNT: It’s one thing to contrive to hurt someone back, it’s another thing to carry out the hurting act itself.
    Well done ma!

    • Well, I think it’s safer not to plan it at all. The devil is very wicked. We may plan on supposition only to find ourselves carrying it out even if it’s just for the heck of it. But the results are never pleasant.

  8. Hmm….the kind of love that depicts God’s love for his church. Even when we go wrong, open arms still await us. I like this!

    • I like it morest……Chidinma ifugoya? Say ‘yes’ to my proposals if you want to be able to write a poem like this some day. loooool (I can look for trouble in Africa). You people better tell Aunty E. to block me kikikikikikikikiki lol…..seriously wish my computer has emoji

      • I like wetin I dey hear, only say u no dey serious. (Chudinma, no mind am.) Come borrow emoji from me. Lol!

  9. Nice poem, especially for this beautiful love season. The mutuality that exist in the union is reflected in the peom. Thanks to uncle Richard for demonstrating the real Christian fellow he is by loving his wife(Aunty Edith). No domineering spirit at all. Hmmmm, that lovely uncle.
    I love this poem and I wish for all these spices in my own future union #lol#. Nice one Aunty, thanks for using simple words for easy understanding.

    • Lol, spices! That’s a good one! I pray the Lord grants you more than you desire in Jesus’ name. And you’re superbly blessed, Chet!

  10. Can one really find true love? how can we find and maintain such? Aunty you av open the heart nd minds of many, helping them in their daily affairs, keep it up. True love is the ultimate transcendantal love which can only be found in God… He is the ultimate reality, the unmoved mover.

    • I agree, JC! The love of God is above all others and through His love, we learn to love Him and people in our lives. Bless you!

  11. love is something that should be appreciated by any living soul irrespective of culture and tradition. It goes with soul,spirit and mind of both parties involved, without prejudice and conditions. For ME, true love doesn’t consider obstacles and consequences. It is Holy affection. thanks Ma.

  12. Its indeed a good thing to be loved unconditionally. But ma u make some of us who r single jealous and wonder if our prince charming will find us. U said it all tank u ma.

  13. Tank u very much ma. But we the singles are waiting for our prince charming that will love us unconditionally like ur hubby. Pray for us too. Nothing gives joy than being in love with your soulmate.

    • Prayer is important, my dear, but you also need to be sensitive to know where God is leading you and be willing to obey Him. May the Lord give you a fulfilling marital relationship when the time comes in Jesus’ name.

  14. It is superbly delivered i must say. true love is not domineering. It is shared between the parties involved. That is exactly the kind of love Christ had for the church. it was purely unconditional. I pray God to give me the heart to love like he did. many thanks to Uncle Richard for this perfect example.

  15. True love sees only the good side of the loved. Just as the bible says “he that finds a wife, found a good thing and obtaineth favor from the lord” i wish that God will bless me with this kind of Richard’s wife when the time comes

  16. love is what maketh a family. where there is love in a family, they drink with one cup and always look forward to becoming great.Note all things walketh together to those that love Christ, also the constant love of God is better than life itself psalm 63;3.. all this is to emphasize what true love is,i pray thee ma that you should also love him more.thank u

  17. Love is patient, caring, kind nd felt most when it is a genuine one… My sweet mum and aunty this is a very nice piece and I pray that God would also give us true husbandssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

  18. love is something good if only we find the right person..
    the poem said it all love doesn’t retaliate but forgives.
    love gives one reasons to continue and not to breakup
    I pray God gives me the right person when the time comes..

  19. This poem is Romantic, inspiring. I love it. Why I wish this is coming directly from the one I ….. Anyway, all this same. I pray some day some time I ll still hear such from….

    • Thanks a great deal, Linda! Yes, His boundless love makes everything else fall in place for us, hallelujah! You are highly blessed in Jesus’ name.

  20. Relationship has its ups and downs, hard times and happy moments, love covers them all, it’s enviable! Wishing You an unfading married life and love in Jesus Name, Amen

  21. Nice one ma…. Was actually imagining if such true love can be found in this present tym.

  22. D love of God is so great and marvelous, i wish we all will embrace it at Dis time in our life. D LOVE OF God has been shed abroad in our hearts. Pls Dear Reader, are u among? I love dis post. It really depicts d kind of Love God has for His Church.

    • Thank you, Frankline, for that crucial question. It’s not enough that God loves us, we need to respond to His love. You are blessed!

  23. Finally, I’ve long waited for this confession . I love the poem, very simple, understanding in terms of the choice of words. I pray enerstly for your union to continue to blossom
     ? Sweet Home ✨
    Also, for I and my generation and more to come ,that we’ll wait and pray for our true life mates.
    And conclusively,for the grace to wait for our main groom ..Christ on his return. To be found faithful and not cheaters

  24. So many wonderful comments on this poem and I strongly agree with the comments made especially the one from Jennifer and also d reply you gave to Martin.. People don’t believe in true love but true love really exists and this poem has shown that. I love the way the poem was written.. The words used were clear to me. And I will want to drop this again
    # True love exists

  25. All thee alpha males, come and see the definition of true love o. All thee ‘nagging naggers’ take note also. Nice one ma! This poem makes me want to marry tomorrow, but this economic recession just gave me a reality check.

  26. True love,,,you can hardly find that in this generation. I pray God bless us the way He has blessed you so that we will be happy in our marriages too.

  27. Love means that you accept a person with all their failures and stupidities. Love in general is seeing perfection in imperfection itself.

  28. This is really nice..I believe that true love exist and the one God has destined for you will always find you..bless you ma.

  29. True luv is a gift frm God, true luv is nt jst in relationship bt also hw u treat ppl around u. show luv to the needy nd help does in need.

  30. It is indeed the way true love is to be expressed. Standing strong for each other, believing in each other’s dreams and working towards reaching that goal. Wonderful one Ma.

  31. Love like no other, hard to find but it warms the heart when found. Nice one, keep touching lives. God bless you

  32. see love “wa tin tin”…..my future hubby had better write a piece as good as this oooo

  33. “You pray about it when i hurt you
    You don’t contrive to hurt me back”……this line has said it all. Very interesting piece. Sure it portrays how Jesus loves not only the church but the whole world. May the love of Christ find us…Amen.
