The 11th, 12th, and 13th Commandments

Don’t be deceived by Facebook pictures and public appearances.

As we were taking these pictures, my wife whispered to me that people will not know that we had a disagreement this morning before taking these pictures. Looking at these pictures, you will think that we are angels.

Very far from the reality, we have our quarrels. There is a subsequent video I will post next where she scattered the table.

The 11th Commandment: Thou shall not deceive thyself.

You are not a spirit; even angels fell.

Even David fell.

Be realistic.

The 12th Commandment: Thou shall be true to thyselves.

We accept our imperfections.

One day when we were much younger at Aba, I wanted us to go drink coke and eat peanuts. I told her that she has tried a lot remaining married to me. She replied that I have also tried remaining married to her.


No one is better than the other.

We cooked this “pepper soup” called marriage together. We must drink it together.

No retreat, no surrender.

13th Commandment: Be true to others

We mentor thousands of young people and older folks, and we try to be as open as possible to them. We don’t create false impressions of being special. We let them know our challenges and how we have reached where we are. We are therefore not under pressure.

We have accepted ourselves; it helps others to accept us and defend us when we are wrongly accused.

Don’t ever think anyone is more special than you.

God Bless You.
