Alyssa: the Princess of Eugene Oregon

Alyssa was born in Eugene Oregon, and she dreamt of having a better home than the one that raised her. Towards the end of the school year, her teacher brought a text for them to discuss. It was about marriage and divorce. It is unbelievable how even high school kids are planning already for divorce. Anything bad people attribute it to culture or color. She looked at things differently. The teacher asked them if they liked the way marriages are falling apart and the high rate of divorces. Not a single one of them liked it. Most of them were from broken homes. Their teacher told them that people who accept to play by the rudiments of marriage make happy homes.  
He narrated the story of his friend who was married. She submitted to her husband to a point where he finally surrendered the management of their finances to her. Single women gossiped that she was a slave to him, and divorced or unhappy married men said that she had made voodoo on him. Those women who were divorced twice or were on their third marriages made it a habit to denigrate them. Those girls with bad attitude that no man wanted them too had joined he list of haters. Nonetheless, they were merely both submissive to God. Alyssa never forgot that lesson that day. Finally, Alyssa graduated from high school and went to the University of Oregon. While at a party, I asked her how she met her husband.
She put her hand on her mouth and sobbed a little bit. “I am emotional right now to even talk about.” She stuttered! “I went to the library in the university. I was just sitting and looking around. Then I saw this guy just going through one book to another. I said to myself, ‘that is my husband right there.’ I went to him and said, ‘Hi.’ He said hi to me too. We talked a little bit, and we exchanged numbers. I called him, and we began to talk. His accent told me he was from somewhere else, so I asked him where he came from. He told me that he was from Burkina Faso. Then we began to talk and the rest is now history. I have been his wife for 9 years, and he has been my husband, best friend and teacher for all these years. What has been our secret is that I know that where he came from women submit to their husbands and that is when the husband will love you with all his heart. Once I submitted, he loved me and did not only give me his heart, he gave me his all. I virtually manage our resources, and he has never asked me what is going on because he trusts my management skills which are better than his, anyway." She smiled.  
Alysssa and her husband decided to visit Mexico for a vacation. Her husband had told her that it was unwise for her to keep sending her private personal pictures, yet she did it anyway. Her husband was to teach a class at a University in Guadalajara. She had her very personal and private pictures in her phone that she took that morning. She remembered that her husband was lecturing her the day before that it was unwise to be doing that with her career. He told her that if he was her, he would just wait and do show and tell when they met. Feeling bored at home, she went to the market while he in school, and someone stole the phone.
The hoodlum sent all those personal private pictures to her favorites, including the husband, dad, mom, and sisters.  He was in class, so he could not check his phone even once. Before he got out, she was already waiting for him. She was even the one who powered on his phone, so she read her own messages. They sent 5 very personal private pictures to everyone on the favorite list. Her best friend sent her a text asking her why she was sending her those pictures. She told the husband that someone was trying to sabotage her. While they were together, the person kept sending her private pictures to the husband’s phone. That was a great trial, but it too passed as they will finally come back home after blocking the phone. She had leant her lesson never to take or keep private pictures in her phone.
Alyssa understood the secret of marriage and a happy one of that matter. She knew that if she submitted to her husband, she was going to win him entirely, and she did. They both submitted to God, and the husband has always loved her as Christ loved the church that she is willing and ready to die for her. Alyssa lives in Oregon with her husband and they are happily married.
