    My wife and I are trying to have children. So far it's a difficult road that affects my wife quite a bit. But one aspect of it is frustration at the news of a friend or family member who's pregnant or has a newborn. When this happens it's another layer of frustration, anxiety, or sadness.

    Any helpful wisdom, advice, or prayers would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

    Have you been given a glimpse of what God's purpose for your life is? Once you have been given that child, the praying doesn't stop there. You'll forever be comparing others if you don't just go with the flow. I mean this in a very heartfelt way.

    Prayer lifted up and I pray you kids rece[ve the blessing you seek. When she is despondent hold her close, very close and reassure her and kneel down, right hen, if possible and pray over her. And when you can, help her do her chores. When I was below the E-5 grade, in the Army, my hands did not rot or fall off for washing dishes when I pulled KP. Do this and she will grow much closer to you and when she is not troubled over this, God will bless her with her desire.
