A Gifted Mind | Tribute To Uncle Gbenga Idowu

I won’t be surprised if certain angels in heaven are already bending over with laughter some moments after your arrival. 
Your sense of humour was in a class of its own. 
Every one of us had a unique name – a name we answered with a smile when you called.

It’s difficult to say exactly what profession you were because though you were an officer diligent to duty, I have furniture in my house that remind me of your skilled craftsmanship and creative genius. 
I have memories of bringing loudspeakers from secondary school to you for repairs. Not only did you fix those speakers, you created a different casing that if I didn’t witness the process in part, I would have joined others in saying you bought a new one for us.

You inspired my drumming by teaching me in a rather unique way that you either know how to do something well or not at all.

The last time we saw, you gave me yet another number to send the monthly bulk SMS to. 
You weren’t trying to encourage me; you simply just believed in me. 
Your action instructed in me a sense of responsibility. 
Thank you.

Gifted hands, humor-bank, creative mind, loving husband, jovial uncle and friendly dad are just a few words that describe you. 

We may not remember all that you were now but as time passes and this wound heals, I am sure memories of you will describe your person a bit more. 

We will remember you and with a smile on our faces too.

You have left behind a VERY SWEET woman and WELL trained children.

Aunty Bisi (Mum Ife) – your very humble wife, Ife and Ike – your brilliant son and pretty daughter are going to miss you a lot more than the rest of us but be rest assured, they have gained a much larger family because of you.

I’ll pause here Uncle. 

Rest well.


Bro Gbenga Idowu was involved in a road traffic accident on Tuesday 10th November 2015. From what we are told, most souls on board the I'll fated automobile lost their lives including our beloved uncle...

NOVELTY NOVEMBER | November 2015

When she says “I do”, the status of the bride changes immediately. 
Right after saying those words, she looks the same but her level has changed.

It is possible for something new to happen; unnoticed and unannounced.

19 For I’m going to do a brand-new thing. See, I have already begun! Don’t you see it? I will make a road through the wilderness of the world for my people to go home, and create rivers for them in the desert!
-          Isaiah 43:19 (TLB)

In writing 11, the numbers may look alike but they surely differ in value and positioning.
This may look like just another November, but it isn’t.

5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
-          Revelation 21:5 (NKJV)

This is NOT just another November of your years; it is a November of NOVELTY.
(novelty: the quality of being new, unique, original, or unusual; newness)

23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
-          Mark 9:23 (NKJV)

God Bless You!
