this I know
I’ve written before about the grief of infertility popping up in unexpected places at unexpected times.
Sunday morning in the nursery, one of the other teachers was reading a book about Easter to the kiddos (toddlers/2s) during the Bible story time.
The book wasn’t very good.
Not only was the book not very good, but there was a part of the book that said something like, “Jesus loves all of the boys and girls and mommies and daddies.”
Yep. That was it.
In some ways, I suppose that statement includes everyone – I guess we are all boys or girls – but to a former unintentionally childless person, it made me feel sad.
I’m going to go ahead and say it: Jesus loves the single people and the infertiles and the purposefully childless and the guy who lives in a van down by the river too.
