Tears in My Sleep

Dear Lord,

I confess struggling with envy today. In my sleep, I was crying about friends having their baby. In my wakefulness, it didn't really bother me, but apparently it did inside. I am thrilled for them. The struggle is that we both started trying to conceive around the same time and didn't right away. Then, they announced that they were pregnant. We still aren't, and now they are parents.

I am happy for them and the MANY others who are new parents, and I am trying not to be envious. Please give us an appreciation for this phase of life and a peace that You will open my womb when (and if???) the time is perfect. In the meantime, may we seek Your face and honor You in everything.

In Jesus' Name,
