I was crying within 5 minutes of listening to this Focus on the Family program, and tears streamed down my cheeks for the rest of Ann Kiemel's talk.
She talks about her desiring to have a baby and her struggles with miscarriages and adoption.
Just a small taste . . .
I knew I had a choice. I could make sorrow my friend or my enemy. Sorrow could make me hard and cold and bitter or Sorrow could be my best friend and teach me things I had never learned before. I reached out and took Sorrow's hand in that quite moment. She removed all the sham and fluff from my life. She taught me what it is to be real. She taught me what it really is to celebrate because only when you really know sorrow do you know how to laugh. She taught me what it is to love; it is to be vulnerable. It's to hold you hand out and to never hang on to anything. It's to let Jesus take out or put in anything he wants, and it is to say yes.
If you are waiting for a husband or baby or struggling with sorrow, listen. (On the Focus on the Family page click "listen now.") It will be 15 minutes well spent.
