Bearing the Cross

Great post at Chief Executive Mom about childbirth….

“….Although I believe on the one hand that God designed out bodies to deliver children I also acknowledge that Genesis is quite clear that the process is cursed and part of Eve’s punishment for sin. I don’t follow the thinking of those who say that childbirth is a completely “natural” and beautiful process. No, its cursedly painful and sometimes horrible, while miraculously also being shockingly beautiful and absolutely incredible. Somewhat like the cross, eh? Both a horrible thought and an incredibly beautiful thought. Life from death, joy from pain; seems to be a theme going there, eh?”

This post is thought-provoking and a beautiful reflection of how a God-centered life really spills into the way we see everything. Read the rest here.
