Re: Anyone else leave their childbearing up to God?
Amen! BTW I was an unwanted child but I know God wanted me and God loves me.

All of us at times make choices in which the consquences follow us for a life-time. However at least for us on this thread, believe God is the creator of Life. Who are we to say- you know maybe if I had only had EJ and not Ani my life would have been better..... Could any of us look at our child(ren) and think- i wish i hadnt had you. If your grandparents hadnt had your mom, you wouldnt exist. I think God had a reason for each child (even if we cant see the whys).
Anyhoo- not trying to be contentious- just giving food for thought. Im so blessed to read this thread- all of it
