Say it with me, the clock is always ticking

Say it with me, the clock is always ticking. So the Father in this photo montage was the New Orleans Saints’ player who blocked the punt that allowed them to when the Super Bowl.

Then he got ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Then he set out to capture all the wisdom he wants his baby boy to know.

That’s because odds are high he won’t be around as his boy grows up.

Jeff,

I can tell when you wrote the past couple of days of blogs that your heart was and probably still is filled with emotions. Know my prayers are for Mike’s family (90 days out, they are still in need of prayer). My heart is heavy for them, even though I don’t know them.

Bob, the posts were written “real life in real time”.

Thank you for your prayers then – and now.

Praying for both families. As well as the rest of the world too.

Too young! Too young! Jeff, I’m so sorry and I feel your sadness. The clock is certainly ticking for all of us, and only our loving God knows what time we have left. May He bless you with His great love and comfort today…

Natalie, yes too young, and at the same time, perhaps more time than they may have gotten had things gone differently in their life.

Praying for the peace and comfort of all the Family and friends.

Thank you Natalie for taking time to share a note.
