Barren Bitches and the Embryo Culture

It's time for another installment of the Barren Bitches Book Brigade brought to you by Mel at Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters. I'm excited because this is the first one I've actually participated in. You can check out my responses here. And be sure to visit the rest of the lovely ladies. Links are here and here.

About halfway through writing these last night, I had second thoughts about posting them on a more public site. Perhaps these were better saved for here, or maybe even not discussed at all. Have you ever had a plan to approach something one way, but then midway through, something inside takes over and SPLAT! Before you know it you've spilled your guts all over the computer? That's what happened to me around 11 pm last night.

I don't think I've ever put into words my disappointment with god before. And there. I just did. I did regain some control during the writing process so it's not all out there. But enough to probably piss some people off.

IF dramatically changed my relationship with god.

It's bound to, I think.

Your disappointment made me a little sad because it reminded me of how long I let other people's definition of God be mine -- meaning how long I let the haters tell me who God was. I know you've spent more years thinking on this than I have, but don't forget about the New Testament ... much less smiting.

Also, I was thinking this morning, there's plenty of assisted reproduction in the Old Testament. When a baby was meant to be there and biology wasn't cooperating, arrangements were made. And those babies were the most blessed.
