my little piece of Jesus.

I’ve been following Elisha from “Waiting for Baby Bird” for a while now. Last week she posted something that really resonated with me, so I want to share it here. Her post was about Mark 9:37 – “Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not only me but the Father who sent me” and she wrote about her revelation that the little girl they are fostering is ‘her little piece of Jesus.’ By welcoming her, she welcomes Jesus.

It was so encouraging to me. I’ve often thought of our embryos, and the hundreds of thousands like them, as ‘the least of these.’ I love the thought that because of that they are a little piece of Jesus.

It’s a beautiful sentiment.

🙂

Blessed am I.

*After note – Today Elisha posted about the craziness that is the acronyms associated with TTC {trying to conceive}. They had me snorting because I have read entire conversations on the embryo adoption facebook groups I’m in where I was completely lost. It’s driven me crazy on more than one occasion! “What’s the Magic Code?”

  1. Oh thanks girl for linking up with me. You are so right…your embryos are a little piece of Jesus 🙂 And I’m so glad you got a kick out of today’s edition of The Comic Section. There are sooo many TTC acronyms I get so lost! How do these women come up with these and keep up with using them? hehe
