On this day, many women post pictures of pregnancy tests or ultrasounds. People start congratulating them, but the next day, they post, "I'm joking! April Fools'!" I have always hated "jokes" like this (even when single and newly married), because it is lying. A few years ago when I was wanting a second child, false announcements tore the wounds open some more.
While you may think, "It's just for fun. It's only a joke." No, it's a lie. Again, you are lying and trying to bring all the attention on yourself.
Like a madman who throws firebands, arrows, and death is the man who deceives his neighbor and says, "I am only joking." ~Proverbs 26:18-19What do you think of the false pregnancy announcements women often make today?
