Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.“Karen Kingsbury’s A Thousand Tomorrows” is a love story for the ages and shows real sacrifice and loyalty in the face of insurmountable odds. I was only required to watch episode 4, but I watched ALL 6 episodes! I loves this mini series. My daughter is always joking that she needs to find a cowboy, and Colin Ford the actor playing Cody Gunner does not disappoint!
The six-episode series from AFFIRM Originals premieres the first two episodes on Friday, February 24, with new episodes following every Friday. The series is about Cody Gunnar, a nationally-renowned bull rider who is cocky, brash and a legend among his peers. On track to the top, Cody has rejected everything about his past – his famous father, hurting mother and every woman who ever came along. His heart only has room for his younger brother, Carl Joseph. That’s when barrel racer Ali Daniels enters his life. Only God knows how many tomorrows they will have together. Can Cody and Ali make the most of their time in the dangerous and competitive rodeo world?
In Episode 4 Cody and Ali have been spending months getting to know each other in the evenings after her mother has gone to bed. In this episode he finally has a frank, honest conversation with Ali’s mom about his intentions with Ali. Throughout the time they are spending time together Ali asks Cody “Why do you ride angry”? He finally tells Ali about his dad leaving him and his family when he was only eleven-years-old. When his dad left he told his mom, “he couldn’t be a father to someone like Carl Joseph”. Carl Joseph is Cody’s younger brother that has down syndrome.
Cody and Ali grow closer and their feelings grow stronger, but will Ali’s secret and Cody’s inability to forgive end their relationship? Ali’s secret is that she needs an immediate pulmonary transplant and they need to find a second donor. Her father is a natch, but the transplant requires 2 donors. The Bible verse that comes to mind is“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you,” Deuteronomy 31:6, which encourages believers to have strength and confidence when hard times hit. No matter what happens and how difficult an illness or health battle becomes, the verse promises God will never leave us.
