Few Days Later after close of work, David came home to an empty house and tried calling his wife’s number but she was unreachable. He went to the kitchen to look for what to eat but didn’t find anything and decided to freshen up and go to bed. It was past 9:45pm when she came in that David woke up from sleep.

David: Sweetheart where have you been, I have been calling your line and it has been switched off.

Mercy: I am so sorry dear, after I came back from work, my battery was low and there was no way I could charge it for I had a programme today in church.

David: Programme today? I thought your programme was Wednesday and Fridays? Today is Tuesday.

Mercy: Yes but it was a different kind of programme of which I was almost late and went to church after preparing white soup and Fufu for Pastor and his wife to eat.

David: White soup and Fufu.

Mercy: Yes, Garnished with Chicken.

David: Hope he liked it?

Mercy: ‘Yes, she said I should thank you also for the food items you sent to him and the cash’ she said smiling.

David: Really?

Mercy: Yes, He blessed and prayed for me for he said I am one of the few people who remember him always.

David: He said that?

Mercy: ‘Oh Yes’ he did.

David: Good to know.

Mercy: Yes and by his grace, we are blessed.

David: Amen.

Mercy: Errrmmm, how was work today?

David: It was a bit stressful but we thank God.

Mercy: ‘Okay, let me prepare indomie for you to eat then’ she stood up and was about to go when he stopped her.

David: There will be no need for that, just dish out white soup for me to eat. I don’t want to eat any indomie this night.

Mercy: You don’t want to eat any indomie?

David: Yes, I want to eat white soup also.

Mercy: Ermmmm, which white soup?

David: What do you mean which white soup? The one you prepared for Pastor and his wife na.

Mercy: “Oh that!” She said smiling. ‘I didn’t and never prepared white soup for you except for Pastor.”

David: You mean you never kept some for me?

Mercy: No, I never had the intention of preparing one for you not to talk of keeping some for you.

David: Hmmmm.

Mercy: You know that I was so tired when I got back from work and had to use my last strength in preparing that, I thought if you come back you will want to eat indomie or rice and stew.

David: and you had the time and strength to cook white soup and pounded fufu for pastor.

Mercy: Yes, because he is our man of God who has been interceding on our behalf. We need to show him our love, affection and respect.

David: Hmmmm.
