We have enjoyed renewing friendships after our move. The one tough part is that all of our friends have kids. When we lived here before, we were one of dozens of young married couples. During the two years we were gone, all of them had kids. Literally. Some had two.

Well, we don’t have kids yet, but we still like them. Maybe we can fill the “cool aunt and uncle” role.

Another Prayer for Guidance

Dear Lord,

We have been trying to get pregnant for 2.5 years now. I know that You are the Giver of Life, so You have chosen to withhold a child from us thus far. I don't understand, but I trust that You know best.

I want to (and do) say that You will bless us with a child in Your timing. The struggle is what to do in the meantime. Do I drink special tea (I started drinking raspberry leaf tea today)? Do we spend an arm and a leg on tests? Do I gain weight or workout or stretch or go to the chiropractor? At the end of the day, You decide. So, these other steps seem futile or like I am trying to usurp control. I want to be obedient and take the right steps. Please guide us to them.

If it's Your will, please cause us to conceive by Christmas. Please.

In Jesus' Name,
