Gospel singer Kambua and her hubby Jackson Mathu, are a good example that marriage works.
The two are celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary after solemnising their marriage today.
An excited Kambua took to her Instagram account to celebrate her long time union by indicating the years she has been married.
Remembering the day, the talented singer shared a photo of her and her hubby in their wedding attires.
” 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7…8! ❤️❤️❤️💒👶🏾,”
They exchanged vows at a wedding garden at the Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club.
The couple recently welcomed their bundle of joy after seven years of waiting.
Kambua broke the news last year in March that she was expecting her first child after being the subject of criticism for a long time.
In a long post on Instagram, Kambua narrated how she watched her friends have babies without having her own but she looked upon God.
She reminisced of her marriage journey.
“Right after our wedding ceremony there was a heavy downpour (see the windows). It was magical! ⠀
I remember this day like it was yesterday, when the hubs and I exchanged vows. I remember my excitement and anxiety all interwoven into a beautiful tapestry that would be our future. ⠀
As with every wedding the ministers prayed and spoke blessings over us…blessed my womb, and spoke fruitfulness over us. And as an eager wide-eyed bride I said a resounding “Amen”!
“What I did not know then, was that I would be sitting in ‘the waiting room’ for 7 years. 7! I would watch my friends have babies- one, then two, then five…! I would attend endless baby showers and first birthdays. In the waiting room I would walk with friends who were devastated at the ‘inconvenience’ of a badly timed pregnancy. Whoa. ⠀
I didn’t know how accustomed I would be to the ONE line on a pregnancy test. Empty arms, empty womb, empty heart.”
But then God healed me. He healed my heart and shifted my mind. He lifted my head even when mockery and shame arose. He remained the voice of truth. And after I had made my peace with him, that he would bless me in whichever way, at whatever time, then heaven moved. My name was called. I had been next in line and didn’t even know it! With hope and yes, alot of anxiety I exited the waiting room and became a mother. God has honored me in ways I can never fathom. Not by anything I did, but by His grace. ⠀
He is a God who loves us. He is faithful. He remains undefeated.”
Recently, she thanked her husband, Pastor Mathu, for being on her side even when things were difficult. According to the singer, her husband was with her all through and not at any one time did he make her feel less of a woman for not bearing children.
Happy marriage anniversary!
