My Born Son

Today marks the 17th birthday of my born son! I thank God for allowing me to have this child some seventeen years ago!

In the month of August 1982 I had fallen sick one Friday morning with what I thought was the flu. I stayed home from work that morning, hoping by the weekend that whatever I had would pass! Then by Sunday afternoon, my parents had come home from church, and my sickness seems to had worsen, so my mom and dad decided to take me to the emergency room of the local hospital. At this time I was not able to walk, they had to place me in a wheelchair, and wheel me into the hospital. My blood was draw, and tests were given, but the results came back that I had some type of stomach virus. So I was prescribed some medicine and released to go home.

Monday morning came, I felt like the medicine was working, but by that evening; the illness was getting worse, the pain in my stomach was beyond painful. I was not able to keep any food on my stomach! I could not imagine what was happening to me!

Tuesday morning arrived, it was nice day! I got up and dress myself for work! I felt absolutely great (I thought)! Then by the time I stepped outside to get into my car a stronger pain occurred, than what I had experienced earlier that week, it stuck me in my lower abdomen. It buckled me over, I then returned back into the house, and call my job to let them know, that I did not feel any better, and maybe by Wednesday I will be back into the office to work. If I could recall I was taken to the hospital again Tuesday evening, and released for home with the same diagnosis (stomach virus).

Wednesday morning arrived, I had a terrible night before, and that morning I was not getting any better! I remember my mother in the kitchen, fixing me soup, but at this time nothing was staying on my stomach. I remember my oldest sister had come home for lunch, and I faintly remember my sister telling my mother, that "we need to take me to another local hospital, and to get another opinion". To this day I thank God for my mother and sister for following their spirit. At the arrival at the other hospital I was admitted and more tests were ran, they still were not able to diagnosis my condition. So the next best thing was to perform exploratory surgery.

After all the pain I had experience I did not want to undergo surgery, but one day a doctor visited my room upon entering, I notice he had on a white jacket, but I did not really notice a name tag. At this time some guests,and I were talking and laughing, which I had not been able to this in a while. The doctor said "hello, he walked over to the right side of my bed and press in my right side and said it was my appendrix, and that I needed immediate surgery". Too this day I did not see this doctor anymore after my surgery! I think about it today, and realized that this person was my angel.

To make a long story shorter, my appendix had already rupture, sending poison thoughout my body, and I remember my mother and father visiting me in ICU, and she was crying! I had ask her why she was crying, after I had recovered, and my mother told me that I so close to dying that the only advice the doctors could give both my mother and father, "was that I was very sick girl and to pray that I recover. And praise be to God it is 2005 and I did recover! But I was told by the doctor in my follow up visit, that it is probable that with all the poison that with thoughout my body, that I may not be able to have children.

When I finally met the my current husband I told him what the doctor's had said, and he told me "we will worry about that mountain when it happens". So when we decide to have children, we prayed that God would show a sign that we could have a child. We conceived our first child, which ended in a devastating miscarriage, but we did not give up my husband and I ask to God show us a sign, and believed the first child was the sign. Then one year from the date of my miscarriage I was expected with my current son, and I prayed that God allow me to carry this child full term. And God did!

~So today December 19, 2005, I am thanking God for my child today! And I pray today for many many more years to come!

C.H.R.I.S.TMAS TIME IS HERE!

Finally the year I really truly enjoy is here! I have been listening to the news outlets, on how people wanted to force Christ out of Christmas, or afraid to say the word, as if this word has committed a crime! I was proud when the people stood up and put Christmas back into the main stream of what December stood for! All my life I grew up hearing and looked forward to celebrating Christmas!

Even though I celebrated and worship Christ throughout the year; Christmas was even more special by setting aside precious time to celebrate our Lord and Savior. Around my household growing up Jesus was the reason for this season! I remember my parents would teach us how Jesus Christ died for our sins that we might have the right to the tree of life. My parent always to said to be like Christ, we must love our neighbors, give to the unfortunate, care for one another, and always put Christ first in our lives!

And I cannot forget the person that carried this precious person in her womb, none other than Mary the mother of Jesus! I truly thank God for Joseph for not casting Mary away! Joseph could have been a person to not accept the calling that was placed upon Mary's life. I thank Joseph for being a true man of God allowing his spirit to work, and not the flesh!

We as a people have something to be thankful for!
