Seeing the Future (Part One)

A long time ago, on a blog far, far away, I posted a few insights into a time of transition on my life.  My wife and I were moving from roles and responsibilities that we had either outgrown or should never have been given and into places with wider horizons and unexplored territories.  While the future was one that was filled with seemingly endless possibilities, the days of the transition were filled with questions, doubts, soul searching and a general sense of frustration.  It is a beautiful thing to know that what is being left behind had its season and its purpose.  It is a wonderful day when dreams clarify, the future pours itself into your heart and you can be hopeful about things that are coming your way.  However, it is the transition that can bring you to your knees.

For those who do not know, one of Kelly’s deepest passions in life is helping mothers bring new lives from the womb and into the world with grace, strength and beauty.  She walks alongside these moms, gives them encouragement, helps communicate with the medical professionals, gives dads tips on how to help.  Her official title in this role is doula, and as a doula, as the greek roots imply, she is there to serve and tie herself to the mother and family to see that the transition of new life takes place the way it was intended.

All that leads me to one word: Transition.

(Part two coming soon…)
