Have you ever wanted something with all of your heart?
The desire was there from the very start.
Have you ever wanted something so much bigger than you?
So you pray & you pray-what else can you do?
Have you ever had a longing so deep & so strong
My friends all have babies-what have I done wrong?
So many things in my life, I can control on my own!
But this one is different, I can’t and I feel all alone!
Our friends are all saying you need to have a family
What are you waiting for-most of them have 2 or 3?
So alone in my despair I sit and I ask
Please Lord tell me why-am I not up to the task?
Everyday on my journey-I notice expecting ladies
Do they realize the special gift that they have received in those babies?
They are a precious Gift from God and no other
Only He can decide when we become a Mother
Many of us may have waited to be a Mother for years
Our prayers were so Many as were our tears
But our God is loving and we can have no fear
Because He is there right with us every time we shed a tear
He loves us all more than we will ever know!
That is hard to imagine but the Bible tells us so
As Mothers we love our children with all of heart
But God loves them even more and that’s the Best part
So pray for your children each & every day
Then point them toward God all along the way
For each of their lives He has a plan
Pray they will seek Him every chance they can
Pray for your children even if they are grown.
They still need Him, none of us can do it alone!
God will provide though his timing is not always ours
You can put your trust in him just look at the birds & the flowers
God has given me this rhyme to share with you today
And to wish all of you Moms a Happy Mother’s Day
I shared my testimony and struggle with infertility in the entry prior to this one. My struggle of 2 plus years seemed like an eternity at that time. I know some of you have been on that journey much longer and probably have alot more wisdom than I do. I also know that at that time it was the hardest thing that I had ever gone through. In 2003 I had no idea the heartache I would face in 2010. An easy conception that ended in tragedy. I know some of you that have faced infertility have also then faced the loss of that child. The loss of that very child that you prayed & prayed & prayed for. That baby that you LOVED so much. I would LOVE to tell you that I have an answer for that. I DON'T. I am so sorry for your loss though. I have struggled with guilt as I have prayed for you. I have 3 children on earth to LOVE and raise, I know some of you that don't have any-YET. But I know God LOVES you and he has a plan for you. My prayer is that you won't loose HOPE. Please don't give up on God, he WON'T give up on you.
"For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of him." 1 Samuel 1:27
