i shared my playlist from israel yesterday, and so today i thought i would go back to an old tradition i had of providing a saturday song. this one is from jack's mannequin, which is the project of andrew mcmahon (who you may also know as the frontman in the band 'something corporate'). right before jack's mannequin's first album releasted, mcmahon was diagnosed with a kind of leukemia. he was able to fight the disease and survive and their second album, the glass passenger deals with some of the themes of a survivor. one of the songs is called swim, and i just find it to be a very powerful song for encouraging us to keep going when we feel like throwing in the towel. it reminds me of galatians 6:9 - so let us not grow weary in doing good, and at the right time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
