Why Does God Allow Boo-Boos?
Some of you may recall a post I wrote earlier about Sienna falling off of her bike and what a typical boo-boo drama brings to our family. Sienna has been having a difficult time dealing with her new boo-boo. We can distract her from it most of the time but there are those moments when she obsesses about it. I think for a child on the spectrum, boo-boos can send a blip through the nervous system.
Sienna asked me this morning, "Momma, why does God give us boo-boos?"
I replied, "God doesn't give us boo-boos, but he allows us to have them so that we become stronger."
Anyone else have another answer? Please comment!
