Words of Wisdom

As I was reading the Quran just now I thought I would share these words of wisdom with you all. No matter what your religion they certainly apply to all of us.

I know so many of us around here want children, believe me, I want nothing else more than this. But again we have to remember there is a reason we are going through this infertility journey... anyway these words below comforted me so much I hope they do you too.....

I ask God to forgive us all and grant us peace and happiness in this world and the next, Amen.

"Wealth and children are the adornment of life of this world. But the good righteous deeds, that last, are better with your Lord for rewards and better in respect of hope."- 18:46

" And it is not your wealth, nor your children that bring you nearer to Us, but only he who believes and does righteous deeds, as for such, there will be twofold reward for what they did, and they will reside in high dwellings in peace and security." - 22: 37

"Whatever of mercy (of good) God may grant to mankind, none can withhold it; and whatever He may withhold, none can grant it thereafter. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise."- 35:2


  1. The thing is, i was expecting to do a lot of good deeds through my kids, raise really awesome children, etc. I put a lot of stock in the value of those deeds. Now, i'm floundering to be satisfied with daily worship, whatever i can squeeze in betwixt this rat race. Somehow, i come up short, surprise, surprise. Who has time, right?! I dont feel the full satisfaction of my own efforts. That's within me, i know. I do it to myself. I devalue my own self and efforts on some level because i fear overvaluing and overpraise and getting a big fat head (to match the fat bod, which we're trying to shrink, not grow).

    Anyway, thanks for the quotes. I just pray for relief. Last night i had a dream and in it i watched someone else's story onfold and i wept. My body was shuddering when i woke because internally i was still crying. My soul is crying and i'm not sure how to make it stop. I want it to, but then maybe i need a good cry. In the meantime, we keep on feeling slightly bad, slightly down.

    I wish to be relieved. Sometimes, i think i am or that i am doing much better. Then i get dreams like last night that seep into my day, reminding me that something is slightly amiss.

  2. I don't know what to say Fertile Soul excpet that your soul is indeed fertile in so many, mnay ways....sending you lots of hugs...xoxoxoxoxo

    Your words always bring peace to me, thank you so much.
