Introducing Mr and Mrs Mncube

A couple of years ago I remember lying on my bed at night, surrendering my everything to God. I was in so much emotional pain, I was miserable, I was in tears. I said the most deepest prayer I probably have ever made in my life. I still consider that conversation with God on that day the most deepest, powerful and closest I’ve been to God. I prayed about a lot of things, I am a praying woman generally, i’m not afraid of kneeling down.

I don’t want to reveal too much details about what the actual prayer was about but it included the man I need. What you need to know is that I have met him, and he is everything and more that I prayed for. How everything together just jelled. We didn’t have to force matters everything just fell into place and how we make each other feel, those close to us know it.

This reminded me about my favorite quote: What’s yours, will never pass you by!!! I now understood why my previous relationship didn’t work. There is a huge difference between my current and my past. Believe me if you’re not meant to be with a certain person, no matter how much you try to be with them it’ll never be. I remember telling munchkins (this is my husband pet name at home) that I prayed for him before I met him. I prayed to God that he prepares me first before I meet my other half. That God gets me right first so that when my Future comes along I’ll be able to recognize him and oh boy. I did!! It may not have been on the first glance but in a short period of time I realized yep this is him.

To my suprise we were sitting talking about life in general and he randomly out of the blue said I want to marry you one day! I want to have children with you! I want to build a home and a family with you! I was in total shock because I was at a point in my life where marriage and kids were a complete off idea. I told him I don’t know when I’ll want to be married or when I want to have my first child and that I wasn’t sure if I wanted kids or not. He looked at me calmly and said if you don’t want children it is fine. But I do want to marry you. This was probably in six months of us in a relationship. I was very shocked!!!!! Yah this man had intentions and was very clear on what they were.

Nonetheless months went by and his actions showed me how worthy of a man he is to fulfill the dreams he has of us in future. My heart warmed up to the marriage idea and having children. It then became our favorite topic to discuss plans of how we want our future to be and how we started planning for it together. This was before he proposed or even sent his uncles for lobola to my family we were already behaving like Mr & Mrs.

He later on told me that he once also prayed for a woman like me to God before he met me. He prayed for a best friend, companion, a wife and a mother to his children, And looking into my eyes he said he believes he has found his missing rib. I don’t think writing this would describe the beautiful feeling I had in my soul and heart at that moment. Looking into him and feeling those words fill me inside an empty space I didn’t know I even had.

I wouldn’t say our relationship is perfect. We fight like other people and wont talk to each other for a while until we’ve calmed down. But when we get along you’d swear we didn’t have a fight earlier on. We love each other like siblings. If I didn’t know I’d say I love him like a brother I never had. I’ve had to shape this man to be my husband just as he has shaped me to be his wife. We’ve both been learning everyday that we live we try to make our marriage better day by day.

Through the power of our prayers a few years back we are today Mr & Mrs Mncube. I’m a wife to my best friend. I’m his missing rib. My other half!!!

I know people ask about how he proposed!!! He he he. Someday I’ll write a special piece of how he actually caught me off guard one faithful evening and brought me to happy tears on his one knee with the bling bling on his hand. Funny !! he made me choose a ring design months earlier and oh well he had to wait for it to be made! He went as far as doing the trick while im sleeping to measure my finger and make sure the ring will fit, Until the special day came!!! off guard he called me by my full name 🙈🙈 Nokulunga Portia Mahlangu!!! Yuuuuuuuu my heart pumped so hard! my eyes filled with tears! i lost my voice! the rest is history!……

Our tradition is sooooo fascinating!!!! Taking a wife is quiet a process! Before we even get to lobola negotiations the culture we both had to perform to inform ancestors about welcoming a new member into our families. Those who have done It know how beautiful our tradition is.

Today I am Thulebona Mncube wife Mzilankatha!!!! I have a home to build, umyeni to take care of. Future to prepare for our children. Over all I have a life to celebrate and live. God to praise and always remember that we have and we are what we are because of the powers of the most high. If you know God! You’ll know how important maintaining that relationship is! Everything just follows. I’m not writing this to show off …. But someone somewhere will learn from this post and understand that we become what we say about ourselves. Therefore it is very important to speak life when you speak about yourself. I am the living proof.

With that! Enjoy love! And celebrate everyday God gives you with everyone around you.

From me to you. Let love live in your hearts and in your homes.

From the man in my life

I have neglected this baby of mine for too long now. life has been simply amazing. God continues to shower us with his abundant love. we are blessed.

For the past few week my Mister has been a really God sent angel. He has continued to show me love and great support day in day out. I recently got promoted at work to a senior position this added more responsibilities on my hand….. and little time to do everything. Yes i have an assistant now – who tries to make my days a walk in the park lol. but my biggest assistant is the man in my life, who wakes me up every morning and says god night ever night.

Anyway what brings me to writing this post is just the amazing love this man shows me everyday. Thulebona recently wrote a very very deep touching letter to me – he sent it towards the end of my day and i had had a not so great day, after reading it i couldn’t talk but was left with tears just how much another human being can love a soul like this.

unedited here it is:

 

The day you came into my life will be cherished always.
An angel sent from heaven above for my lonely heart to hold.
My heart is no longer lonely, but instead
filled with the wonder of a love like I’ve never known.

When you first held me, it was magical!
A touch no other but my soul mate could provide.
Truly the passion needed no words.

Your kiss on my lips is something I long for each day.
With a single kiss the intensity of your love so incredibly clear!

Your eyes melt me with emotion so intense it is beyond belief.
A caring and unconditional love that shines from them
that makes me shiver with excitement for our life to come.

Each day your smile fills my heart with a joy like no other.
Oh but to have you in my life is truly a blessing!

On the day we wed…
I promise to you yet again my unconditional love and devotion.
For I will cherish each day that God gives me with you,
our own little piece of heaven on earth.

I will love you always

2012 Memories

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh *Screams* SO WE EVENTUALLY ENTERED INTO MY SECOND FAVOURITE MONTH!!!!!! Ke Dezemba kids *woop*woop*

Years gone by! Each year one gets in with faith that it will be their year.

Lord you have showed me how loyal you are. How amazing you are. How much yes you can give to a person, I’ve never thought in life a person can experience so much happiness day after day after day after day not just to me alone, but to my loved once too – you’ve given pause to a few of our prayers and it is ok because we know what you have for us is bigger that our own ideas. 2012 haai maan what a beauty you are. I’m so happy! I’ve grown so much…. Through the years that I’ve lived, I’ve hurt, I’ve cried, I’ve failed, I’ve been disappointed! I’ve conquered this year I honestly did rip the seeds i saw with my years experience of living. What I mean about living is (experiencing) Geez if I knew this was the plan you had for my life then I would have not cried on my failures I would have not doubted my abilities, I would have not questioned you.

You are indeed a God! You’re my God. Everyday I wake up to know I am yours. I serve you, I have not been to church in a while again but I’ve learned it really is what’s in my heart that matters. My conversations with you make more sense than they did previously. I’m able to talk and be able to listen to you! Where as previously I’d just talk at you and expect answers immediately. I have grown so much patients. I am so calm I am Sooooooooo Happy Lord. This year is one flippen year where everything fell into place. I guess my growth: spiritually and mentally made me realise to be thankful for my life. I can only live it and no one else will but me. Father you showed me how great I am how I needed to get out of my comfort zone and see the world! I am free from all the anger, hate, sadness I’ve carried with me all this time. I now do things I only thought the next person can do but me and I am doing it effortlessly.

You helped me identify the people I want to stay in my life forever! I have fought for friendship, family and as soon as I surrendered my battles to you I saw how not worth it those fights were. I am at the point in my life where I live to please me, those that aren’t happy can beat it and Man oh man they did beat it. I still have my off days where I miss them, but I know I am really better off without them. I feel – no wait I am having the time of my life. I may not have everything I prayed for this year, I want to go back to my favourite quote to (Never run faster than my guardian angel can fly) I’m traveling God speed. So when it is my time to receive my prayers I know I’ll be ready for it so prepare me Lord.

I am grateful you let me became miserable, down, because I now know the importance of staying grounded, humble, and being able to encourage the next person going through difficulty. I am a living testimony of your word that we all belong to you! And we are here because of you.

Lord I am thankful for my parents that encourage me everyday to be the best I can be, thank you for opening their hearts and home to receive Thulebona and treat him as their own. Thank you for my work and wonderful colleagues. Thank you for the friends in my life, thank you for the family still holding it together. Thank you for my beautiful little sister and her friends who aspire to be like me someday lol – thank you for making me an inspiration to the younger generation, thank you for all the material things I have. Thank you for the man who makes my heart skip a bit Thulebona for teaching me to be a girlfriend 🙂 and loving me so much with everything I have and my flaws too, thank you for all the experiences lord! The good and the bad. But most importantly thank you for the life you have given me. Thank you for the Wisdom you’ve given me. Thank you for everything.

I won’t mention my prayers again because only you and I know what they are God. But please help me stay patient, calm, grounded and most importantly disciplined. Let me love those around me and respect them. Please heavenly Father may 2013 be another beautiful year. Where we find more happiness and make us give happiness too.

2012 it has been good and real and we are thankful! Let’s give 2013 a chance. I believe it will be twice an amazing year. I can’t wait to meet you 2013 I am excitedly excited lol. I pray for my loved once to receive more good next year. Let them stay happy and learn to forgive.

We never could have made it this far without you God! Please be with us now and forever.

Till then, happy season kids. Stay safe.

Happy birthday Mama.

Happy Birthday Mama!! Words cannot express the utmost respect and love I have for you! God has indeed Blessed me with a MOTHER! You are my role model, when I become a Mother, I want to Mother my kids in the same way you have Mothered me!! You are truly inspirational, all that you have done brings tears to my eyes! Your husband (uBaba) and I swear that you took a vow that your kids would become your life!!! I think you forgot about yourself and lived for your children! You forgot about yourself but never forgot to be a Mother! You live to be a Mom! You have dedicated your life to your kids. Everything you do is for us!! You were born to be a Mother! You schedule your life around us, as old as I am but I’m still “Lulu” you gave birth to many years ago! I don’t think there is anything you can do but to be a Mother!! I am grateful for you have shown me the depth of unconditional love… I will never be short of love for my Parents showered me with it in abundance! I take that with me to my future family… I fear being a Mother sometimes because I don’t want to give my kids less than what I was given but I am also excited at being a mother because I know I have you to guide me all the way… because the love I will give to my kids is the love I received from my Parents! Mama you are a true epitomy of a Mother! You always tell me being a mother is a full-time job…. I see it with you! ♥! May God keep you for more years as I would love for you to see your grand children. Your Husband watches you with Loving eyes and is probably saying-I chose the right woman to be the mother of my children and best of all the world greatest wife.

As I grew older I understand where your disciplines came from, and we started becoming friends because I could now see your no answers to my silly requests came from. You’re a wonderful wife, a friend but most importantly you’re a MOM to not just the kids you gave birth to but to every kid that walks into your home.
May God bless you richly and I know I won’t win the best daughter of the year award but in my deepest of deepest heart I know I’m one of the best thing in your life. I love you with everything I have. And I’m thankful for my one and only sibling. Our small family you and u-baba gave us. Seeing you guys all of us everyday makes me wish for my own family someday when I’m ready.

I trust I’ll make a good mother and wife one day and that’s because of your teachings, discipline, love,

I honestly am at the point where I understand you the most right now, and before making decisions these days I sometimes think of you and what you’ll tell me if I asked for help.

You’re grounded, down to earth, the worlds most trusting person. I’m happy Baba choose you out of everyone else to build a home with, I know me and him disagree most of the time. But the decision of you he deserves 100/100 he got it right.

If I were to die and come back to earth, I’d choose you to be my mother again and again and again.

Here’s to another year of love, happiness, asking for advises from me lol, tears,

Happy birthday Mama.
