The familiar burn had begun, the wait was over and now things could move right along. My baby’s head was past the cervix, the agony of labor was past, the pressure intensified as my child moved through the birth canal. Ahh…..Life!
Becoming aware of a faint repeating tone, I open my eyes slowly and see the tear stained cheeks of my wife, and a brave smile beaming through her worried face. “You made it dear” she said in whispered tones. Pressing my hand to her lips, her soft sobs being released from deep within, the wait is over. Ahh…..Life!
I want to run away, just forget it all, get out of here and forget! I hate life, I hate living I hate people, I hate…….Oh…..just leave me alone! Get out of here, do you hear me! Get out of here! I screamed in my apartment, throwing my self on the bed, I knew my dad was praying for me. I knew he was pleading for my life, I knew he wouldn’t give up, I knew that his love was winning out. We both know this is a battle of life and death. In my deepest yearnings I want life, but my hurts are so deep, I may hate now, but don’t give up, please don’t give up, I want life. Ahh…...Life!
Life! John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. KJV
