The celebration was simple but splendid, stately and exclusive to
a select number of family members and friends. We’re talking about the 50th
birthday party of the stylish and graceful Beauty Expert, Mary Charles. For
those who attended, it was an invitation to love, excitement and merry-making. As
a committed Christian, it was at The Revival Assembly Church, Ogba, Lagos,
that the celebration began.
Her guests were there to
join her to offer praises to God. The service started with light worship songs
which soon transformed into a praise fiesta. The Senior Pastor of the Church,
Apostle Anselm Madubuko fed guests’ spiritual appetites with an interesting and
inspiring sermon. His preaching had the perfect dose of unpredictable wittiness
and satirical eloquence – laced with thought-provoking words on human life and
purposeful living. Anyone who has heard the Apostle speak knows he has got a powerful
oratory prowess – one that commands attention with ease. Shortly after, prayers
were offered in adoration to God for His favour in the life of the celebrant as
well as for many more years of good health and prosperity.
The service drew to a
close with exchange of pleasantries and a photography session where friends and
family jostled to take photographs with the ‘golden girl.’ The happy audience
found its way to Jade Chinese Restaurant Ikeja, GRA, Lagos, where the
celebration continued. The ambience of beauty, harmony and elegance that could
easily be seen in the hall captivated everyone. From the attractive decor to
the garlanded seats and tables, then the beauteous cake; everything was neatly done.
As the music played, guests enjoyed a good assortment of Chinese delicacies
accompanied by good wines.
Charles, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Ikeja South was called
upon to do justice to the beautiful golden cake that had a touch
of white and a star carving on top.With rich smiles spread across her
face, as everyone spelt the name ‘Jesus,’, she cut her beautiful cake.Thereafter,
a few of her friends were invited to speak about the celebrant. All
those who did agreed that Mary Charles was a remarkable mother and
a friend who is very loving and caring.
The lady who runs a
top-rate beauty facility called Twinkle on Allen Avenue,
Ikeja, Lagos was also described as a hardworking businesswoman. Thereafter,
the dance session was declared open. Some wriggled to the sweet sounds
breezing from the speakers, while others slowly rocked from right
to left. Everyone had fun, but of course, no one could beat Mary to it!
