Lizzy Oke Recall Memories From The Past As She Thanks God For Giving Her A Second Chance With Her Husband

   

Being with someone who loves you with your disabilities and shortcomings is one of the most wonderful things that can happen to a person. And for Lizzy, she is forever grateful to God for her husband, Amen, who loves her despite being on a wheelchair.

Lizzy and Amen were friends in school and he had asked her out in 2008 but she said no to him. Shortly afterwards, she had an accident that affected her spinal cord and left her on a wheelchair till date.

During the time of her accident, Amen was a pillar of support and showed how much he cared for her. In 2009, he asked he out again and they started dating, in 2015; they got engaged and got married in 2016 with the hashtag #Amizzy2016.

Since their marriage, Lizzy can’t stop talking about how supportive her husband has been and even building a home that is wheelchair accessible for her.

Recalling memories from the past, Lizzy is grateful to God for giving her a second chance with Amen.

She wrote,

DOUBLE #TBT because I feel like it. I usually don’t post #PreWheelchair#Throwbacks because it naturally makes people want to “pity” me and I am not one for pity, but today I said “ehhh” .

In 2008, I was curving #LeBoo. Our father in heaven forgave me and gave me a second chance in 2009 when LeBoo asked me to be his girlfriend again and we officially started dating. The car accident that left me with a  #SpinalCordInjury happened a few weeks after we took the photos in 2008.

In case you are doing FBI things and trying to decode whether I started dating him because I felt like “I had no choice”, #SMH#STOPIT, but I feel you sha, so just this one time only, you can feel free to insinuate your theory jokingly because even I suspected myself.

One of the hardest decision of my life was choosing to date this awesome man because I felt it was not fair to give him what the devil tried to make me believe was not my “whole self” after the #SCI. We were teenagers and I knew that saying yes to be his girlfriend would eventually lead to marriage because he was a young man of God who had principles and I wasn’t ready to commit to at the time.

However, Le boo was persistent and I grew up from my childish ways. I got closer to God and discovered I was still whole and a blessing to the world and any man who wanted to be with me.

I will forever credit my near death experience for so much of my emotional and spiritual growth but please note that YOU don’t have to nearly die to receive sense.

This is just a throwback to acknowledge that it’s really not my business if the chicken came before the egg, or if the egg came before the chicken. I’m just very happy that I fell in love with and married this lovely handsome man who didn’t give up on me.
