JOY & PAIN of LOVING
BIRTH IS THE MOST THRILLING OF EARTHLY EXPERIENCES BUT IT IS OFTEN THE MOST
CHALLENGING AS WELL~especially the next 100 years or if the child dies before the mother! IN other words LIFE IS a BEAUTIFUL MESS & BITTER~SWEET!!!…
…A MESTER~ PIECE ….orchestrated by the MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE WHO CAN MAKE
ALL THINGS TURN FOR GOOD IN TIME IF WE WILL ONLY TRUST & DO THE NEXT RIGHT THING!
THE SMILE on my face is the thrill of a water birth at home after hours of labor & laughter to bring forth our last son! My 12 year old daughter, ( still an amazing photographer!)took
this photo at the moment of my last of 10 births ( 8 are still living on this earth).
Anything worthwhile takes effort & even a certain amount of pain to learn to breath with & through to manage life well. I got very good at practicing breathing with my many births
( the last 5 at home !)
Life IS about taking DEEP BREATHS FOR LIFE!
It is the first & most important principle of good health~
all three aspects of good health: BODY ~ SOUL~ SPIRIT BREATHING!
AND DEEP BELLY LAUGHTER COVERS ALL THREE ASPECTS WHEN DONE PROPERLY!
TODAY my oldest son would have turned 26 ~ but sadly Luke Henry Clifford was sang into
Jesus arms & heavenly peace at the only 1 week old as his father & I wept and began the grieving process that only someone having lost a child can understand.
Doctors misdiagnosed several times the “problem” pregnancy and ultimately GOD had different plans for our precious & beloved first born son.
ONLY GOD can give the peace that I experienced at those critical moments when the world
seemed to be falling apart .
GOD has carried me & guided me and I THANK GOD DAILY for the gifts I learned during
Luke’s short life AND death and though I miss him dearly, I am SO GRATEFUL for the GIFT OF
LIFE & DEATH because GOD IS NOT ONLY WITH ME BUT IN ME.
ASK GOD TO SHOW YOU THE WAY.
Jesus example of TRUSTING HIS FATHER & FORGIVING & LOVING ALL
IS THE WAY
IS THE TRUTH
IS THE LIFE
AND THIS IS THE LIFE
I WANT TO LIVE & DO PRACTICE DAILY TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY WITH GOD’S HELP
WON’T YOU JOIN ME?
