Life involves a series of transitions. Early in life we transition from childhood into adolescence and then onto adulthood. These transitions involve bruises and hurt feelings, socialization and growth in maturity. But we are not done. We move into adulthood by completing our education, establishing ourselves in a career, and for many the finding of a marriage partner. Just about the time we are settling into this season, we change jobs, move, go back to school, begin rearing children.

Pretty soon we are empty nesters sitting across the table from each other trying to remember why we got married. Then we head toward retirement…. and heaven.
