To all the unconventional birth placed babies out there…HELLO! HI! HOW ARE YA? 🙂
This being my birth month I reflect on my birth place.
I was born in what you could call a cabin or a house structure of sorts in Haiti. My birthplace was my home in every sense of the word. Home, not the hospital of which we are accustomed in the states.
After my first life experience unfolded in the place to be my residence for the earliest of my years, there were 5 moments in my life thereafter that did require me to be admitted into a hospital, 5 that I remember anyway. The time I passed out with her as we shopped about, that tragic day, and the 3 births of my children are etched clearly somewhere in my memory bank.
Despite a few happy outcomes, those being my children, I connected hospitals with pain. All kinds of pain. Even authorized pain to dull deeper ones. What chaos in a place meant to heal, meant to soothe and ease. I wasn’t born in a place that provided pain killers. I wasn’t born in an environment that promised ease. I wasn’t born with fancy equipment to control the outcome of my coming out into the world. But I was born all the same. And I am better for it. She endured giving life to me the way she did. God saw fit that I be born in that place,with that family, in this lifetime. I’ve endured some harsh circumstances but thinking of Jesus and where he was born and all that He had to endure just because He loves so deeply…I am humbled.
I feel stronger today as I think about my introduction to the world. The times I did spend in the hospitals were each scary in their own right but He got me through them all, each and every time.
Luke 12:7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
…In those days, if you read from the beginning of that scripture, it states 5 sparrows were sold for 2 pennies. Birds. They are fed and are cared for every day by the Almighty. He cares for me more so. He cares for you more so. No matter how we got here, we are here and He tends to all his children. Faithfully He provides, heals, cares for, and so much more for all that call him Father, Lord, Savior.
…He is all that and so much much more. Live peacefully reader knowing He created you in a specific way, for a specific reason. Find your purpose in his word. Be blessed and at peace.
