The Illusion of Control

The woman who finds her body torn by yet another child, the woman who longs to feel her womb fill with life, and her breasts grow heavy with milk, and the woman who grieves for the life she carried, but lost too early; these women know that infertility treatments and contraception only give us the illusion of control, but it is the Lord who giveth and the Lord who taketh away. And with them I say, "Blessed be the name of the Lord."


  1. it is an illusion indeed...one that I have seen several couple's lives torn apart by putting their hope in that perceived control only to have it fail. But the Lord never fails. Blessed be the name of the Lord, indeed. You are in my prayers friend.
