One Week

This won’t be long, probably one of the shortest posts I’ll write for a very long time…since I am incapable of telling a short story.

Last week today my heart was broken anew because a dear friend shared with me that she was 6 months pregnant…I should have been 6 months along too. Tonight my husband is out celebrating with a friend who’s amazing girlfriend is now pregnant. You know what? I’m really ok with that, in fact I am elated with this news! So what’s different with her news verses my friend’s new from last week? It may not be fair, but there is a difference.

Last week, I discovered my friend is where I hoped to be right now. Enjoying the “joys” of pregnancy, but it is impossible, apart from a shear miracle of God, for me to be 6 months along. With my other friend, who has only discovered this week that she is with child, I still hold onto to a bit of hope. I can be where she is right now. I have that hope that soon I too will be with child, whether or not that is God’s plan is another story. I will be patient, that is my only choice after all and I can find peace in knowing that God’s plan far exceeds my own. His timing has never failed humanity and it will never fail me either. I’m really in a good place, I’m not upset, in fact I feel good :)!

Normally I would have a fitting picture or video to go along with this post, but I am typing this on my iPhone and have no gumption to add any frills tonight. I AM happy for my friend, just a bit too tired to put in much more effort…after all I’m usually in bed by 10:00pm and it’s now pushing 11:20pm! Perhaps I’ll add something tomorrow, but most likely I won’t bother, sometimes simplicity is the best.

Good night my friends, to GOD be all glory, honor and praise!!

  1. Dear Heather,

    Grace and peace of the Almighty God be with you. I understand your feelings and I feel so much better knowing that I am not alone in this battle against barreness. What keeps me going through out the day as I am surrounded with nursing mothers and pregnant women, I work with them and see them every day, is this – I imagine myself in their position, I think of what I will wear (maternity gowns & blouses), I imagine their pain, tiredness, in short I pretend to be them and claim God’s word concerning me, I sing and put a smile on my face. That is what I do, I don’t know if it will help or work for you but I know that God is good and if He can do it for these ones, He will do it for us.

    Take care

  2. Heather, my heart hurts so deeply for you. Wanting to have a child growing in your body that belongs to the man you love is a very, very deep longing. It is a longing that literally hurts as you can feel the void of the womb in your body. If I could take away your pain and suffering, I would. Sadly, I can’t as can no one except God.

    I think God is doing a special work in you. I think that He has plans to take you to a higher level in your writings and teachings.

    I could quote a lot of verses right here that applies to your current situation, but I won’t because I know that you know everyone of them.So now, I will say you will have to practice patience and just wait on God’s perfect plan that He has for you. He does have one Heather, it is slower in coming than you like but remember how many in the Bible got tired of waiting and took matters into their own hands….usually diasters.

    I will continue praying for you, praying especially for your patience while God works His plans for your life.

    I love you dearly Sweet Sister, Charlotte

  3. Y’all are too kind with your comments, but I guess I did not express myself very well, because I’m not sad and upset that my friend is pregnant. I’m actually really happy for her! I’m in a really good place right now, waiting patiently on the Lord :).
