No fruit for you!

Hello there. As my first post I thought I would just share what No Fruit for You means. When an “infertile” reads the Bible she is can’t help but notice the imagery telling us to make fruit.

Genesis 1:28 (to Adam and Eve)

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Genesis 9:1 (to Noah)

Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.

Psalms 128:3

Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.

Well, what happens when we want to make fruit, but are unable?

Like many times in life, Seinfeld reflects life perfectly. We go through all the motions we are supposed to: we date, we marry, we “live life as a married couple for a while”, we then begin to procreate. Oh wait— Apparently we did something wrong along the way and “No soup for you!”. Everyone else around us gets soup, and looks away from us, not wanting our lack of soup to rub off on their chances of getting their soup.

So I hope you enjoy helping and learning with me what it takes to get some fruit around here!
