I think salvation is that first breath after a cannonball into the deep ocean. Or light after a difficult power interruption. Or when mom comes home after a long night of being alone with a tv show that you don’t completely understand.
I think we all wait for that moment. And we all wait for it with a heavy heart. That is because we look forward to something other than what’s currently in our hands at the present moment. And that we do not know exactly what it is.
But we remain hopeful instead. Because something tells us that something is bound to happen and it’s going to be better than what is.
This is the very reason why that first breath after a cannonball into the deep ocean is salvation.
