TILL MORNING

Adebimpe watched as the minister preached about the resurrection and the life. He stressed the importance of salvation as the only way to experience eternal life. To be fair, the man was doing a great job, but she found it difficult to focus on him.

Her attention was on the casket few meters from the pulpit. In there laid her husband of six years and best friend for a decade. Lekan had passed on after a brief illness which seemed harmless.

Adebimpe could not understand why God decided to take him, but his last words to her kept ringing in her heart and gave her hope.
