    OUT OF RANGE


    Morning had come rather late for Uloma as she could hardly wait to see a miniature form of herself emerge from herself. It was beginning to appear overdue for her. “But the doctor said it is plus or minus 2 weeks, then why is it not happening. Must it be midnight before I see results?” she thought.

    This was Uloma’s proposed date of delivery and she was scared that her delivery falling outside the given time frame could spell danger.  There was anxiety and Uloma could not let loose until the expected happened.

    Nnanyelu did not move but ensured that things were in place while he waited impatiently outside the delivery room. “Please Nurse, can I come in?” he asked.  “What else do you want to see?” the outwardly gentle nurse replied with her grimaced face before walking down the aisle with her wobbly backside. “Oh sorry, just make sure she is fine,” Nnanyelu said coldly not very sure if she heard him. He was hungry, yet he wanted to observe every bit of the event.

    “Mr Nay-elu,” the African white nurse who was friendlier called from the next door.  “Your wife will likely be delivered tomorrow,” she said as she disappeared again into the room forbidden from entry. “So the doctor did not want to tell me it was going to be 2 weeks and a day?,” he thought while he left to calm his rumbling stomach. “I hope they will not also tell me it is now a girl rather than the expected boy,” he prayed while he munched his dinner of eba and stale egusi soup which Uloma had prepared the day before.

    “Good morning nurse,” he greeted. Is she now ready to – “be patient Mr Nnanyelu, you will soon see your wife and child,” the strange nurse on morning shift interrupted calmly. Hours later, a baby boy was born. “Nurse, please check to see that everything is okay with the baby. He was supposed to be born yesterday,” Nnanyelu pleaded rather sceptical about the complete wellness of the new baby. “Everything is okay Sir,” the nurse answered.

    “Okay Nurse, do we have to withhold breastfeeding till the day after since he was born a day after,” he asked rather unsure if he was going to have an answer for it. “No Sir, everything should be done without compromise,” the nurse responded with a faint smile. “Mr Nnanyelu, he was born outside the proposed time frame but not outside God’s proposed plan,” the God-fearing nurse added, still smiling.

    Standards are created and adjusted, but God’s standard remains the same. Even when you are born differently, with disability or without a silver spoon, stay in tune with the Ultimate Standard; you are God’s own and you have nothing to lose.  Out of range is not out of God’s cover. You only differ to reflect God’s unique plan for you.
    Remain and celebrate the YOU that you are. Your uniqueness is your strong point.

    • TODAY AS I CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY, I GIVE THANKS TO GOD FOR WHAT AND WHO I AM. I DO NOT PREFER TO BE DIFFERENT IF MY LIFE FALLS WITHIN GOD’S PLAN.
    • TO MY FAMILY, I THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME AND  BEING WITH ME. I APPRECIATE YOUR LOVE AND I PRAY FOR YOU.
    • TO MY FRIENDS AND ENEMIES, I THANK YOU FOR BEING PART OF MY EXPERIENCE IN LIFE. I LOVE YOU ALL AND I PRAY FOR YOU.

    God bless you
