In the midst of my excitement over a new book for moms, my heart is aching.
I have some dear, dear friends–both on xanga and in real life–who would give anything, anything, to be mommies. Some have been trying for months, some for years. There have been miscarriages, fertility treatments, physical difficulties, rough spots in marriages, anguish over the adoption decision…
And these sweet girls are so determined to keep their eyes focused on Christ, to honor God with their attitudes, to be good wives and friends in the midst of their disappointment and pain.
They go to baby showers, even host them. They love on their nieces and nephews and their friends’ new babies. They honor their husbands, even when those hubbies refuse to go to the doctor to be “checked.” They support their friend Marla and her new mommy book, even though reading it will re-open their wounds.
Will you pray with me for our friends? That God will open their precious wombs, if it pleases Him? That He will bless them with a sense of peace about waiting on Him? That He will give them the burning desire of their hearts?
If you (or a friend) is struggling with infertility, please message me. I want to pray. If you want me to share your name with other gals in the same situation, let me know that too. I’d be happy to get a prayer group together. If you want, just leave a simple comment–you don’t have to say names. “Please pray for my friend. She’s been trying for two years to get pregnant.” Then we can all be praying.
Let’s believe God for some miracles. And let’s share them when we get them, so we can praise His name together. And then let’s give away free Diapers books to gals whose prayers for a baby were answered. 🙂
Love you all!
