The movie is about a man whose wife had passed away and how he wrote her a message that he put into a bottle and through it into the ocean. Some time later a woman found it on a beach and read the note and through her job at a newspaper investigated until she found the author. They fell in love but he drowned before they could marry.
Not knowing what was in the movie and then watching it together with both of our pasts brought back lots of pain. Yet, in a very real way it seemed providential for us to watch that movie and deal with hurts and grief.
Wanda said it was the first time both of us had emotional release with tears together. We are planning our lives and future but there are many things we both are dealing with that don't have easy answers.
Somehow the pain of that movie helped us to move ahead. It was a cathartic moment that helped flush out deep wounds and pain. God has been so good to guide, heal, help, and restore. He has been faithful to us even in using a secular movie with similar circumstances.
I feel my future is before me and that there is a life ahead filled with His blessings.
