Good morning world. YEA ! Today is my birthday. Okay now what does that mean to you? Well not much, but for me it means everything that’s true. Happily, however that might also mean something to you too, so just stay with me, as I quickly run down some thoughts connected to OUR birthdays.
In that first reflection we always have to start at the beginning. Then thinking of the beginning we have to consider what our poor mothers were going through in the end of their ends.
Yes, because of stupid Eve making a Huge Mistake, while listening to the snake, then eating the frigin apple, and committing the first sin in the garden, as all mothers will contest, child birth is a mess! No, for all mother’s everywhere child birth will Never be a piece of cake for Anybody!
Hence, realizing that many people are involved on Our birthdays, just as we have been thinking about our mothers pain, we also need to think about ours too. Yes as a sweet innocent baby happily floating around minding our own business, we had plenty of agony on our first birthday as we were also black and blue.
So let’s think more about birthdays from “Our” point of view. Yes let's think about the baby too, because there we were in our mother’s safe, warm stomach just happily kicking around, thinking that would have been the best that life was ever going to be….. When all of a sudden right out of the blue we were hit by a violent earthquake contraction or Two!
Yes indeed those wicked convulsions just rocked our whole world, but happily that unwanted disturbance was over soon.
Therefore, as has always been my nature, I know on that day of labor, I just pretended like that very bad thing was never going to happen again. No, I have never been able to face pain, so ignoring misery to me, has always been so much easier in between!
Hummm, but what happens if you cannot ignore pain?
What happens if pain comes back again? Okay what happens then?
In that question (as babies) there we were just floating around minding our own business when all of a sudden we heard our serene mother screaming. Then all of a sudden even more and worse pain had come our way out of the blue for me and you on that birth day!
Now what? Okay in that consuming gut wrenching hurt what could we do?
Yes as our whole world was violently ripped into as the python contractions were pulling us away from our security with peace and our beautiful amniotic home was depleted we had to question what was happening. Rightfully as a child of happiness, forced into woe, we had to be wondering going along our way what grave injury was happening that day.
Accordingly in those thoughts as our world was becoming a blur and we were placed in the middle of a thousand deadly explosions forcing us down a really dark tunnel, now we were screaming too. Yes all of a sudden we had to be thinking leaving that incredible beautiful security that was once our home….. That birth day really sucked!
And in that sucking feeling, as we were getting sucked down the drain forced through that really tight slimy narrow funnel barely fitting, as our head was getting smashed, we had to ponder how long would that last . Understandably like all arriving pain with our bottom getting mashed, we also had to be considering birth was a big Mistake.
Yes in that moment of delivery or death involved in those jack hammer like constructions being pushed and shoved forward (as we were fighting to go back the other way) we had to be fearing
the birth- day.
Therefore thinking of things from the baby’s point of view on our birth day we had no idea where we are going to. But we knew our once secure happy home where we were just merrily playing all alone for nine months, while happily floating around sucking our thumb, was gone.
Tragically gone were additionally the passing by giddy gymnastic days where we were joyfully tumbling around listening to our mother talking and singing to us, in her muted special way, behind our wall. Sadly all of that great utero life ended on our birthdays’ call.
Miserably we were no longer hearing singing and in that horrible feeling we were instead listening to a whole lot more hysterical screeching. And in that second hearing different things and feeling like we were dying in the end of the end, we also had to be wondering would we ever be safe and happy again?
Of course in the same thought, as all of a sudden our head crowned and our bottom spun around, while were getting ready to be born, on a black scary moment of mourning ripped from our mother, (the only person that we had ever known,) there was even more groaning.
Yes in that labor and delivery taking us away from the one person that we counted on for nourishment, for security, for protection, for love, for everything there was a deadly struggle between the beginning and the ending.
Jointly feeling the same way as we next arrived kicking silently crying into a room with extremely bright blinding lights containing more horrible noises and even more excruciating screaming there was something scarier.
Miserably there were also two Huge human hands vice gripping and cracking our head that were literally stripping us away from our mother.
Then all of a sudden that other giant hand put a big hand print on our fanny. And bottom line, in that horrible spanking and torturous delivery we were introduced to the word pain in a world full of agony.
We were furthermore introduced to our first ear splitting protest surrounding being born.
Yes in that protesting moment of life and death as we all let out a violent scream our dream had become our nightmare. And in that scream our lungs received air, as a wave of life had overcome us, while someone in the room said “Happy” Birthday?
Yes somebody may have said happy birthday, because that was indeed our very first birthday, as the child of gloom just left the tomb in the womb.
Sadly, that was similarly just the beginning of our pain as we were prodded, then poked in our blindness. Thus in that introduction to life we were all thinking the same thing…
What was so great about our birthday anyway?
Well, I think that a fair question, because even as we were finally laid to rest upon our mothers breast, and our screaming crying mother calmed down things were still unsettled. And even as she was now laughing and holding her baby kissing him or her on their birthday, there was always a lot gained, but even more missing.
Yes even as we were laid on her chest gently resting on her tummy having a sense of déjà vu that we were here before, but that we will never be there again too, even as the mother wrapped the baby up in her arms there was a tremendous lack of security.
Sadly in that missing peace as babies, we all were wondering would life ever be that sweet?
And the answer to that question will always be….
“No we would never be that happy, or that safe or that protected, as we just were in the womb,as we entered the sinful tomb, on this earth.”
So again my question to you is....
What’s so great about our birthday?
Therefore, thinking that way, since our earthly birthdays have always been so lacking, and none of them have ever really meet up to our expectations, I think we need to be thinking of our Best and Other birthday coming!
Yes, in that thought that another Better birthday will soon be arriving we all need to be considering that earthly life will always be a tomb of the womb.
And in that tomb we need to be thinking about our eternal deliverance, and the everlastingly happiness….. or perpetual doom with pain waiting.
So on my birthday, I am thankful that I know that there will forever be Another birthday coming, where I will celebrate my greatest present of the present, past, and future joyfully.
Yes on my earthly birthday, and all days, I’m always thinking about the Other sweet birthday where we will be given life eternally!
Therefore in that statement thinking about my Heavenly birthday, and what all I went through to get there, and to get here, I am wondering.... are you also thinking about your Other birthday that will take all of us Away back Home!
Yes indeed to me being born was definitely painful, but being RE-born was necessary and more important
And in that pain and necessity being laid to rest upon heaven's chest I am Happy that all of my birthdays after have been tons of fun and something to look forward to for me.
However I am even Happier that the Birthday coming will joyfully be the
RE-BIRTHday when we actually go back to our heavenly home where laughter will be forever!
Sadly, however without knowing Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior and without having your Real RE-birthday when you will be Re-born into your heavenly home, there will be an internal scream that will go on eternally.
So my prayer for you and my desired present for you too on my birthday as we are each going down the long black funnel of today, is that you too will have Two Birthdays that you're celebrating.
One birth day, on the day when you were actually born and the other SWEETER RE-BIRTH day on the day that you were
Absolutely knowing that there will be a HAPPY in birthday having two birthdays will definitely be so much better than one. Therefore realizing that we will always be kicking and screaming going through our birth pains in this sinful sight traversing through our days and Dark nights you have to ask yourself before you die, are you going to be delivered into the endless fright of hell….
Or on your real insightful BIRTH-day living in heaven, on the Happy BIRTH DAY that lasts for kind eternity, will you too see the light?” Joslin Fitzgerald
Your Prayer of Salvation
Dear Jesus, I know I have done bad things in the past, and that I have done bad things today, and that I will continue to do bad things tomorrow as I am going along my way. Yes that makes me a sinner, just like everyone else in the world every day, with all of the bad things I am doing and saying.
So, because I am a sinner I know I need a Savior....
Therefore my sins and my unhappiness are why I have come to you today, as I am silently praying, because I want to be eternally happy, and I need to be forever saved.
In saying that Jesus, I believe that you were born on Christmas Day. I believe Jesus, that you lived a perfect life that is written down in the Bible to teach me what is wrong, and show me what is right. And I believe Jesus, in your love for me that you died on the Cross to save me from all of my sins day and night. Yes Jesus I believe you died, and defeated the grave as you arose from the dead on the third day. Yes I believe you are Alive forevermore and that you are living inside my heart and soul eternally night and day!
Thus in believing Jesus, you are the Son of God I am asking for your forgiveness for all my sins that I know, and those I do not know that I have committed, including the ones that I will continue to daily wallow in, as I claim in Your Eternal scriptural promise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that I am now going to heaven.
Yes I claim in my new faith this very Minute that I am saved, because you died for me on the Cross, and in your arising on the third day, I know I will not go to my endless grave. In that statement that just saved my life Thank you Jesus, I am now whole since the Holy Spirit lives within my soul!
Therefore in this prayer I believe that I am born again into heavens sight, and in your Biblical Promise of salvation written in the scriptures I have received everlasting life! Thus as I am asking you to change my blind darkness to guiding light you are forever my Savior, Jesus Christ.
Absolutely I pray that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your eternal guiding light, and your Savior today. I know I may never meet you here on earth as we are roaming, but if you truly prayed your prayer, to Jesus requesting forgiveness of your sins, and asking for your salvation you are right now this second saved. And I will see you when we go Away back home!
