Wisdom about using NFP

As usual Simcha gets it right and makes you laugh at the same time.

You’d think a couple using NFP are all about saying no, to each other and to God.  That’s how the then-me imagined the now-me, fifteen years ago, when I thought about learning to use NFP.

But in fact, the opposite has happened:  as we learn self-control, we are both a thousandfold more at peace with the idea of giving up control to God — accepting the unexpected, adapting, being grateful.  This is what self-control has taught us.  That was unexpected!  You never know.
