As a kid I never liked this nursery rhyme. Seeing pictures depicting a fragile egg sitting on a wall and breaking into a million pieces frighten me.
If you read up on the real meaning of this nursery rhyme it has nothing to do with an egg. I believe the story was talking about a clumsy person. Some times I wonder......using negative flaws to create a children's nursery story is quite deceptive. Putting fear into a little child's mind. Even the term according to the Oxford English Dictionary of "humpty dumpty" means a drink of brandy boiled with ale in the seventeenth century.
We all have been brought up in some kind of dysfunctional family. Some worse than others. Nevertheless, there is no perfect family that has escaped dysfunction.
We all are Humpty Dumpty. We all have been broken. Some of us falling further from the wall than others. Resulting in a negative life style to cope with our pain. Taking on shame, guilt, fear, condemnation and so on and so on.
That being said, I am soooo glad that there is hope for us who admit we are broken. Not like the story where all the king's horses and all the king's men could not put Humpty Dumpty back together again.....No, they did not know about the Mighty King Jesus. He can put any cracked egg back together again! Hallelujah!
