I spent the WHOLE DAY in bed yesterday.
Well it wasn’t.
I had the flu. Moms should not be able to get the flu! But thank goodness for my super awesome man, D, I was able to hear the boys giggle and play all day long, and every once and a while a little boy would creep in to say hello, then sneak out before dad would notice. 💛
Yesterday, Mendel and I delivered Sunday’s message, “Self-preservation Stifles Intimacy” together as husband and wife. I’m still in awe of how God used our trial and triumph to speak to His people. #ordinarypeople
Pemuda yang berusaha untuk bersikap lebih baik tetapi masih sering berbuat salah..
Pemuda yang berusaha bertutur kata lebih baik tapi masih berbicara kasar..
Pemuda yang selalu berusaha sabar tetapi masih sering marah..
Ya itulah saya,
Manusia yang tak luput dari dosa..
Manusia yang tak tau malu..
Manusia yang tak merasa bersalah pada-Mu..
Manusia yang lupa akan nikmat-Mu
Kau tutup aibku..
Kau rahasiakan kesalahanku..
Kau sehatkan diriku..
Tapi diriku selalu merasa kurang akan semua hal itu..
Betapa lancangnya diri ini..
Terkadang hati ini merenung..
Diri ini menangis..
Akan semua yang sudah terjadi..
Bertambah dewasa bukan lebih baik tetapi lebih tidak bisa diatur..
Maafkanlah diri ini yang lalai, hina, dan lancang..
Because, I'm without Allah SWT. nothing.

This is one story that spread like wild fire on social media when it first came out ...not because someone just won a lottery or some celebrity marriage break-up (for lovers of bad news 🙊). It was the story of a family of five who were supposedly all mentally ill and walked around in rags, All tattered and dirty with dusty dread hair. It seemed like a scene from the movies as they all walked the streets in search of daily bread before retiring for the night at the shanty they had adopted as a home.
The story was that Mr. Ben Ogar and his wife lost their means of livelihood about the same time six years ago while still resident in Abuja with their two kids, and what followed was a mental disorder leading to them relocating to his home in Ogoja where he refused staying in his father’s house but some shanty.
His family had rescued his first set of kids from him when he started showing signs of mental disorder, so it was six years of roaming the streets of Ogoja that produced the three kids he was always seen with. It was the Cross River State Government and Federal Neuro Psychiatric hospital, Calabar that came to their rescue after they got hint of this almost unbelievable story.
Truly, it was confirmed by doctors that Mr. Ben was suffering from a mental disorder, but the shocking part was the wife and kids; was it possible for the whole family to have gone bonkers as well? Well , it was discovered that the wife was only having the ‘folie a deux’ syndrome as a result of her husband’s condition . The children (two girls and a boy), are now in stable condition as they were only being affected by their parents' condition . The good news is that the family are being rehabilitated and reintegrated into the society with continuous medical care and social welfare. Thank God for whoever took those photos of them that day , as they walked along the streets without a hint of what the future had in store for them. #mystery#unusualtales#ordinarypeople#news#thisisnigeria#instagram#specialpeople#doctors#notetoself#lifeandhome#inspireasmile#familygoals
