Burning off the dross

An unexpected pregnancy is like…

…tumbling off a cliff, out of control.

All you know is you’re falling.

Yet, if you gain control by stretching your wings and going with it, you’ll find a thrill that will last a lifetime.

Life seems to pass that fast, especially with kids, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

What if pregnancy resource centers and the pro-life movement introduced edgier advertising for the guys?

What if new dads were able to see life choices not as dead ends, but as an opportunity to stretch their wings and gain the excitement of watching their unborn children grow up and learn how to fly?

Reminds me of a song: Mark Harris – Find your wings   

Of course, there’s also the flip side – they might not want the child so they can go base-jumping.

It’s all in the way it’s presented: being in the moment and very real.

Making the connections:

This morning’s email introduced a new follower on twitter: @TheRobertD. Upon visiting his tweets I found him pointing to this cool video. Robert works with Andy Andrews, who I recently came across, also through twitter.  Andy is a great motivational speaker and storyteller.  Here’s a sampling of some of Andy Andrews videos so you can judge for yourself.   Truth be told, I never would have put unexpected pregnancies, base-jumping and life changing decisions together without Robert’s tweet. 

And like some of the guys in the video, I’m excited by what God has been showing me over the last few weeks.
