Being Holy and Horny…

The first time I saw the picture below advertising a virtual symposium to discuss a very sensitive topic which many shy away from or should I say “lie to themselves about”, was in April 2017 and I must say I was very impressed.

Maybe I was intrigued because where I come from, everything sexual is demonized and you hardly find people being open about sexual feelings. Just the feelings o, not even the act itself. The very thought of feeling sexual is demonized once you’re unmarried so we have to forcefully disconnect from whatever our bodies naturally feel.

I was married then but the first thoughts that came to my mind that I wrote on Facebook (exact words with funny emojis) and got reminded today were:

“You know your struggle is real but your Pastor told you that feeling is not natural but from the pit of hell. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Cast out that Devil, Pray Harder, Take a cold shower! 😜
‘Wanting is not doing, but wanting is still sinful’ 😯😎
‘You can’t be holy and horny at the same time’ 😏😎 Cheers to all the Saints πŸ™ˆ”

I don’t know why I wrote the above words though, neither do I know exactly why I am republishing here. But maybe it’s just an important conversation to be had with oneself at some point as a youth, or something to just draw attention to.

So, once again, cheers to all the saints never catching mixed feelings of being holy and horny at the same time. 😊 May we all make heaven, regardless. πŸ™πŸΎ

Some Saints though…πŸ˜‰

A LETTER TO MY UNBORN SON

Dear Son,
I know by the time you will be reading this letter on your hologram phone you will be laughing at Facebook and wondering why your grandfather’s son chose this slow medium .
For your information this is amongst the fastest messaging technologies of my time. The hologram phone is still at the conceptual stage .

I believe however that by the time you will be here it would become a reality. After all, I remember growing up when there were no emails, internet, Facebook, et al. We used to buy airmails and write to “pen pals” abroad. We waited for weeks to get our responses or in some cases RETURNED LETTERS due to one or two spelling mistakes in the addresses .
We had a full session dedicated at our morning assemblies in school to the sharing of mails received.

The heroes were those who received fat mails regularly.
The content of these mails were usually Bibles, magazines, tracts and audio cassettes. Hmmm, many youth today do not even know how an audio cassette looks like let alone how to use it. I still have a few and I would keep them for you to have a look.

I remember how we zealously and jealously guard our address books to prevent others from copying from them. In some cases we mischievously alter the numbers in the addresses so that those who secretly copy them would receive RETURNED LETTERS.
Son, those were very interesting times but I know you would find it boring. Anyway, my main reason for writing this letter to you is not to talk about my childhood days. I would dedicate another letter to that later.
I want you to be careful about the kind of women you let into your life. Do not be distracted by physical beauty. I am certain cosmetic surgery would have reached insane levels at your time cos even now men are able to undergo sex change surgery to become women. One of the essential questions you would have to ask a ‘woman’ you like in your era should be: “Were you born a woman?’
After you have established the baseline that she is really a she, please look beyond her looks.Get a good woman just like your mom. If I want to describe her now this letter would be too long so I would do so in another letter. Having a pretty looking woman is good, after all, your mom is pretty but it should not be the basis of your choice.
