LOVE BREWED IN THE MULEMBE POT

Proverbs 30:18-19 (NKJV)
18 There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Yes, four which I do not understand: 19 The way of an eagle in the air, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the midst of the sea, And the way of a man with a maiden (a man and his Love).

They say, a picture speaks a thousand words. Pictures of my mentor and elder, Papa Atwoli and his love walking around touring their farms spoke volumes. The pictures showed a glorious couple. They looked so glamorous, so in love, so at peace that many of us who had lost it had to revive our thinking about this thing called love.

 

As usual the critics and bloggers had to make their witty comments. Some commenting on their dressing, others on their age etc.

 

But they missed the key thing that we saw in those pictures. LOVE. What came to my mind are the words of Solomom, the wisest and wealthiest man who ever lived.

Evolutionary culture would have us believe that the attraction of a man and woman for one another is a mere matter of biology. We are mere animals and the sight of certain things arouses us. But as Solomon meditates upon God’s gift of love, and the gift of lovers, he confesses that it is all mystery – not biology.

There are three things which are too wonderful for me, Yes, four which I do not understand: The way of an eagle in the air, The way of a serpent on a rock, The way of a ship in the midst of the sea, And the way of a man with a maid.

How is it that a man with so much clout and power like Papa Atwoli suddenly re-freshness & awakens and becomes starts glowing with youthful strength? How is it that a man who has made it, dines with kings and commands a huge following suddenly develops a fresh clear and distinct vision? How is it that a man intent and disciplined, suddenly forgets himself, finds focussed, eager and ready to move ahead with more vigor? Solomom calls it a mystery. The Mystery of a man and his maiden. 116778247_1744539692389593_8879562064310227846_n

 

CONCLUSION

Papa  Atwoli, thanks for setting the benchmark for we African, let me say Luhyia men very high. Kudos,
