Best Friend, Dating, and Fall: "And We created you in pairs" Qur'an (78:8) I REALLY LOVE THIS STORY, SUCH A GREAT LESSON. My husband doesn't have a lot, neither of us do. We scrape and scrape to pay bills and put food in our bellies, but after almost 2 years of dating we decided that we couldn't wait anymore, so we didn't. I wasn't even thinking about rings, I just wanted to marry my best friend, but he wouldn't have it. He scraped up just enough money to buy me two matching rings from Pandora. Sterling silver and CZ to be exact. That's what sits on my ring finger, and I am so in love with them. . - While we were purchasing my rings however, another lady that was working there came over to help the lady selling them to us. She said, "Y'all can you believe that some men get these as engagement rings? How pathetic." When she said that I watched my now husband's face fall. He already felt like a failure, asking me again and again "Are you sure you'll be happy with these? Are you sure this is okay?" He was so upset at the idea of not making me happy enough and of me not wanting to marry him because my rings didn't cost enough money or weren't flashy enough. . - I said, "It isn't the ring that matters, it is the love that goes into buying one that is." We bought the rings and left. Y'all I would have gotten married to this man if it had been a 25Β’ gum ball machine ring. When did our nation fall so far to think the only way a man can truly love a woman is if he buys her $3,000+ jewelry and makes a public decree of his affection with said flashy ring? Sure they are nice, sure the sentiment is wonderful and I'm not trying to cut down any of your experiences, but when did it come to all that? Why do material possessions equate love?? . - My husband was so afraid of me not wanting him because he couldn't afford a piece of jewelry. He was afraid that the love I have for him would pale because he couldn't afford the wedding set I wanted. The world has made it this way and it is so sad. But here I am though, Court-House married, $130 ring set, the love of my life by my side and happier than I could ever imagine." β–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒβ–ƒ @abed.alii πŸ“

Africa, Children, and Crying: Deported for the 2nd time this week.... @chakabars It's so hard for Africans to travel Africa.. I'm so upset, I'm crying while I am writing this, all I want to do is see the children and make sure they are ok...I have been deported from DR Congo twice this week. I got my visa at the Congolese in Ethiopia, twice, because I was told it was ok to get it there. The government in Congo has just changed and they don't want westerners going there. So they are taking months to give out Visas in london. The goverment don't look after the impoverished children properly. They live in massive houses and never go down to the "poor" areas. When I first met the children in Ngaba they weren't being fed properly, there was nobody to pay their medical bills or school fees. I have been organising my life to make sure that they are good and I just want to move them out of terrible conditions that they live in. My heritage is Jamaican, but I wasn't raised there, I was raised in the UK, but I don't belong there, the only reason I am there is because of the slavery of my ancestors. I don't speak an African language so when I'm in Africa it's difficult to communicate. I feel like I'm an alien sometimes. When I met the children I felt like I belonged, they are orphans in their own country, I am an orphan of the planet. When my ancestors were stolen from Ghana or wherever, we didn't need a f*cking passport, now I need a passport to go back... And a Β£90 yellow fever which gives you a chicken Embryo injected with yellow fever. Yellow fever isn't even a problem, nor is Ebola. AIDS was put in to Africa by polio vaccines (Hilary koprowski) Some europeans created the borders for this reason, so they could divide and conquer us. They have built their whole society off the back of Africa, never apologised, don't share, still exploit Africa, they don't give back equally and we still experience racism. Many children in Africa are suffering, yes they are joyful because they are better humans than us. But the suffering is so much, no running water, no electricity, no sanitation, no food, no humanity, what can they do? more below πŸ‘‡πŸΎ
