For the past couple of weeks I have be so overly busy. All I want to do is sit down and write but I have not had the chance. I have a love/hate relationship with being busy. Being busy means that I am getting things done.....BONUS! Sadly they are usually things that I would rather not be getting done........ NON-BONUS!
Things like cleaning out the loft space in our already overly stuffed cottage. Parting with items that I really want to keep but cant. Or sitting in the office doing work stuffs! I don't like being in the office, it goes against every part of who I am to sit still in front of a computer and bang something out in Excel! Stresses me out just thinking about it.
But in saying all that I have been happy busy too. 2 Sundays ago I had a call from one of the girls at the homeless shelter, calling to say that one of the other girls had gone into labor. The ambulance wouldn't go and get her because of the area of town and the fact that they had no money. So she was calling me to help her deliver the baby over the phone! The mother of the baby was a 17 year old meth addicted prostitute and was a run away. The head was out and the girls were all panicking. I calmly talked them through what they needed to do and baby Nathan was born moments later.
Now that's the kind of "busy" I'm talkin about!!!!
Put me behind a desk and I can feel the life being sucked out of me.
Have me help to deliver a baby over the phone with a bunch of prostitutes as my delivery team and my life takes on meaning. I need to be out there. face to face with those who need Him. Those who have no one else. Those who need to know that they are amazing and strong and precious.
I drove down to the shelter to check up on the baby and when I got there the girls who had helped to deliver Nathan were on a high. So excited and full of stories for me. Of how they never knew that they could be part of something so amazing. Asanda's comment was " This is WAY better than Sugars (Meth). I could do this everyday instead of drugs."
I know that I am at a point of change in my life. And I am excited to see where God takes me in this. At the moment I am praying about going back to school, what to study?............... Mid-wifery of course ;-)
