For Women Only!!!

I turned 40 in August and found out last Thursday that I am going through menopause. Not only was I shocked, but I became very upset. I do not have children and I am not even dating anyone right now. My doctor took the attitude that if I want to have children, I better rush out and get pregnant, before it is too late. In a panic, I started considering it. But after calming down and speaking with the women in my family, who have children, I decided that I would continue to wait on the Lord. While I am working on myself and waiting, I have started re-reading the Bible stories of women like, Sarah, Hannah, Rachel, and the Shunamite woman, who believed in faith and God blessed them with children. I know that God has promised me a husband and children and I will continue to wait until my fondest dreams come true.

I am serious about finding a husband. But I want him to be the husband that God wants me to marry. I do not believe in divorce, but I certainly won't spend my life with the wrong man.

Hi rozie, I can understand your problem as a woman but just do not believe on faith only. Don't you know man proposes and god disposes. Search for your soulmate and god will help you in the process. Good luck and have a happy christmas. Happyt mylotting.

Hey Darlin, forget having the kids, just have the grandkids, they are so much more fun and less work. I think they even love you more. Hehe. I do wish that all your dreams come true. I just happened to run across this post. I didn't get it in my email like I should have, I am going to have to check to see if I still have you turned on. It should be because I never turned you off. Thats sort of sounds funny but I think you understand it, hehe. I hope someday that I get to meet someone special again. I did the kid thing, have the gandkids too. I'm 48 and still regular with my girl stuff, I am so looking forward to not having periods. Lordy Lordy Rosie is 40......

Are you teasing me because I am 40? This was the only age that bothered me. Somehow, I knew it would be a major milestone in my life. With God's help, I am going to make it the most wonderful decade of my life. I want the kids and the grandkids. Thanks so much for sharing Darlin, hehe.

Turning 40 didn't bother me, I thought it was hillarious. I'm 48, a gramma, have the grey hair, although my friend finally talked me into coloring it. I have to say I like it. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was in high school. Years go flying by so quickly. I do hope your dreams come true. God does answer our prayers, but not always the way we want. Have you ever thought of being a foster mom, maybe adopting kids. Your such a kind sweet person, any kid would be blessed to call you mom. Take care Rosie, Merry Cristmas.

Hi, Sometimes you can not wait for things and or someone to come to you.You have to go out there and look for and get what you want. Mingle, network. I am sure the man of your dreams is out there and while you are doing this, God will always remain in your heart. Now go out there and get him:)

You guys make it sound as simple as going out, snatching a man and dragging him to the alter, LOL. I wish it was that easy. Thanks for your response.

hi rozie37 every year you wait to have children you run the risk of more abnormality in children, so yes your doctor probably does want you to get pregnant as soon as you can. but of course you cannot use use the mail order and order up a husband like that. So you must help yourself then the lord will help you too.Make men friends at work or at church whereever you are where their are also men your age. maybe you will be led to the man meant to be your mate. I think there is only one man who is right for us and we will know him at once when we meet him m.

As a wife and mother, I do understand your feelings and your pressing the panic button. But at 40, you are a matured lady and its obvious that you wont rush into things just to be a mother…however, as others have said before me, if you want to have a family, you really need to be on the overdrive. Practically speaking, us women have our biological clock which does not stay in top condition with age and it’s a bitter truth that children born to parents of late age do have the possibility of having defects and deformities. Biblical times were different…I believe the men lived to be nearly 1000 years so I really don’t know the peak age of Sarah’s biological clock! But yes, prayers have their own strength and this festive season, I do wish that you come across your soul mate ASAP… yep, send that email to God!

I know the this is a state of emergency, hehe. I have been praying about this for so many years and I know that God knows my heart's true desire, but I can not understand why it is taking so long. Thanks for your response.

Hey Rozie37, there's no perfect man or woman in this world. Don't be too stick to your standard of what kind of a husband the god will give you, yes if I were you, maybe I'll wait and see as well, just live happliy. If no lover, no husband and kids, I can also have many other thing, like family, friends, pets, you can share you love with many others. Just do what you feel what is right to for you to do! Good luck!

Personally this is the way God really wants it to be for us, and I am Glad that you have come to this realization and decided to continue to wait on the Lord. The Bible does state that when we are Faithful and continue to give service to him and wait on him with Trust and believing in his time Good things shall come to pass. You never know your husband could be the next man you meet even. The day I met my husband God told me I would meet someone, so god does truly answer Prayers. Truly I admonish you for sharing this, and look forward to one day reading Great results coming from this as well.

Your decision is the right one wait on the Lord for he has the last word. God may have other plans for you, just wait patiently on him and he will guide you. I was just reading Proverbs 4:20 My son attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. ...We often incline our ears to what everyone else is saying, rather than to what God is saying. The doctor doesn't have the last word God does.
