Some days I know that it's going to be hard to be around pregnant people. We long so badly to have children....and yet most days I can handle the pain that I feel, some days it just seems unbearable. This has been a really busy week and I just honestly didn't want to go to church this morning and see lots of beautiful families expecting little babies. **Some of you expectant mothers I love so dearly and I would never want to make you feel uncomfortable, most days it's a joy, but today wasn't one of those. You are dear friends, but sometimes it just makes me sad.
Anyway on my way to church this morning I prayed that I wouldn't run into any pregnant ladies- knowing that the tears might immediately start flowing.
God totally answered my prayer. I didn't run into one pregnant lady.
But as soon as I walked in I saw lots of people I didn't recognize, and lots of families dressed up. What is going on...I almost even went up to another one of the pastor's wives and asked is there another church visiting this morning. I also began to notice lots of baby carriers....I later found out that between services there was a baby dedication. hahahaha. So not a one pregnant lady that I ran into, but tons and tons of beautiful babies.
It really made me laugh. God answered my prayer and also reminded me that I may never give birth to a baby, or feel pregnancy pains (praise the Lord), but that doesn't mean that I won't have the chance to mother a child. He has a plan and it is coming together. It's just not time yet, but someday we will rejoice and dedicate our child to the Lord. What a day that will be!
