Coming Up Empty

This has been a busy (sometimes difficult and sometimes fun) week around our house, and I haven't had time for much deep thought. I have some potential posts floating around in my head, but none have come to fruition.

I did, however, just read the most amazing article on barrenness and adoption in Christianity Today. CT and I have an on-again, off-again relationship, but this article was one of the best pieces of writing I have read in a long time. If you are a woman and a Christian, you should definitely read this. I don't care if you are single, a biological mother, an adoptive mother, or something else. This really is one of the most profound theological pieces on motherhood that I have read in a long time. Right up there with my favorite pregnancy book. And I don't think just women or just Christians should read it. It is really that good.

Read it already! And let me know what you think.

i settled into my bed last night with this article expecting it to be cozy, light, and encouraging... later telling doug it was a bit too intellectual. not what i was expecting. in retrospect... i think it's not the article, but me rather...surviving on just a few disjointed hours of sleep this week due to the boys' sickies. thx for the exhortation to take it out for a ride again after i get some more sleep!

Sorry. I should have warned that it is heavy reading. But it really is good. Tackle it again when you have more sleep. It's worth it.

oh, should have clarified. i first tried it before you wrote this post... so no need to apologize! i was just saying i was grateful to hear that you liked it... so i'll try it again. maybe i'll read it the boys for an advent activity. HA!

I printed the article out and also took it to bed with me. And mulled over it for a while. I suppose I read it from a very different perspective, as a single, but it still strummed my heart strings and tears actually came into my eyes. Not sure exactly why... anyway, want to read it again and mull over it some more. Thanks for the recommendation.
