I posted this poem back in January. I found it on another blogger's site and it really resonated with me. I was in a dark place at the time and angry with God. I felt like my dreams of becoming a mother would never come true. I'm hoping this poem helps someone else out there who feels...well...broken...

Broken Dreams

As children bring their
broken toys
with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken
dreams to God, because
He was my friend.
But then, instead of
leaving Him,
in peace, to work alone;
I hung around and
tried to help,
with ways that were my own.
At last, I snatched them
back and cried,"How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said,
"What could I do?
You never did let go."

Thank you so much, Sarah. I think God used you to speak to me today because I'm having a rough time today. Just feeling like there is no way this IVF is going to work and find myself questioning God's plan for us. So, thanks for posting this tonight of all nights. It was something I definitely needed to hear!
