Kris and I watch the movie Cast Away most every time it comes on television. I’m not sure why. There is practically little to no dialogue during the first half of the movie. Come to think of it… Maybe, we like there is little to no dialogue. Once you have three children, silence is bliss.
Anyway, we were watching recently and I heard Tom Hanks’ character say:
“I have to keep breathing. Because, tomorrow the sun will rise, and who knows what the tide will bring.”
Many have inquired about my little surgery and biopsies and whathaveyou. It was all good, friends. All good. I was never really fearful, but there is always an awareness of the fragility of life when our lives are stopped head on with major interruptions and more doctor’s appointments that we care to attend to.
But, I am a wife. I am a mother. And, most importantly, I am a follower of Christ. I have continue to walk in truth. I have to keep pressing toward the mark no matter what is staring me in the face.
While our current situation may look grim or seem hopeless, we have to keep breathing. We have to keep praying. We have to keep trusting in our Father who loves us more than we can fathom. Because, tomorrow the sun will rise, and who knows what God will do.
Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5
