Earlier this year I realized I would be 40-years old this August. I thought if I was going to have another child I would need to do it pretty soon. The question arose from my mind…Should I have another child?
When I only view life through the lens of “right now,” it is often perceived as unfair. [But] as we have the promise and hope of all our tears being wiped away, so can the pain and grief that accompanies unfairness be wiped away through redemptive experiences and lessons from God.
Yes, God asks us to do hard things. But I am so grateful that I trusted God and His plans for me. His timing is always perfect, even when we are scared.
I was struck with an awareness of just how worn out my mind and body are and how much they really do need rest. A thought came to my heart that God is completely aware of all I have been through and that I need to show myself more grace, more self-compassion.
