Every one of God’s children has a plethora of stories to tell from their lives. Some stories are wonderful and inspirational while others speak of challenges and the lessons learned from harsher times. Author Saint Edward retells stories of his life in the form of short stories in Life Stories of a Sinner and the Chosen One: Part One. In this first book of a new series of unknown length, Saint Edward recounts stories both good and bad that he has lived through during his time on Earth and how through them all, God was always there beside him to offer His blessings
Every year on my birthday my mother would sit with me and recite the events to every detail of my birth. She would look off as she described it to me like a movie played out in her head, she would tell me where all my brothers and my father were. Even with all my families efforts to be there with me I was born at 4:30 something in the morning and she was alone. She would always get right up to the actual birth and she would suddenly shrug it off and come back to reality and tell me what a blessing I was.
Years later after I had moved on in life and moved out and had a family of my own, I sat with her as she told me the story of my birth again. But this time she didn’t stop at my birth, she continued on saying that when I was born the Dr almost dropped me. I laughed and asked her why and she said “I’m not one hundred percent sure honey, I couldn’t see down there at the time but I definitely saw him fumble about with you” I looked at her in a puzzled face and said “I wonder why?”
She made an odd face as though puzzled and said “Well the Doctor was absolutely freaking out, he said you were a monster and that’s when he almost dropped you.”
I looked puzzled at her “A monster?”
“Yeah! They wrapped you up and handed you to me as fast as they could but when they handed you to me you were a perfect little boy”
