So, yesterday I met with a friend/mentor/spiritual mother for a nice long chat about my numerous insecurities. It went really well and I'll be putting some of her suggestions to use today!
She did, however, say something that bothered me a little. We were talking about my desire for children and she told me to have patience and not "arm-twist God". She said maybe God thinks I'm not ready yet, but if I continue to "arm-twist" Him, He'll give me a baby even if I'm not ready. I know she means well, but is this really how God works? I thought He would only allow us to get pregnant if it were His will...
In other news, last night and all morning I've been getting weird prickly feelings all over my body. It's kind of freaking me out...does anybody know what that could be? Also, my husband starts his new job today, so please pray for him! :)
Happy Solemnity of All Saints! As Mother Assumpta Long, O.P. says, this should be our feast day someday! :)
