Wait and See

My friend and I had gone to see the movie "Up!". It was an epic tale of an old man and a young scout trying to earn the only badge he was lacking: "helping the elderly". Watching the story unfold, are witness to the tender moments in the lives of this old man and his bride: their friendship, their love, their dream and the old man's promise.

Suffice it to say, I wasn't prepared for it to evoke such emotion. But, wow! It was sweet and delightful.

We left, said goodbye and I got into my car. The radio began playing Brandon Heath's "Wait and See". I'd not heard it before. The chorus perfectly summed up the movie... and life.

There is hope, for me yet,
because God won't forget,
all the plans he's made for me
I have to wait and see,
he's not finished with me yet,
he's not finished with me yet

I've seen "UP" twice now. Once with my husband and the second time with five of our senior citizens from the retirement living community where I work. Such a touching movie and lots of good conversation afterwards. It was great to see Disney do something with an older person being the hero. Beautiful story. It touched my core.
