Unselfish Love, Faith & Great Strength thru' HIM

A son asked his father, "Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?"
The father whom, despite having a heart condition, says "Yes".
They went on to complete the marathon together.
Father and son went on to join other marathons,
the father always saying "Yes",
to his son's request of going through the race together.

One day, the son asked his father, "Dad, let's join the Ironman together."
To which, his father said "Yes".

For those who didn't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.

Father and son went on to complete the race together (as the song goes, he ain't heavy, he's my brother. & in this case, his son) :

Mom saw this from another's blog & thought its a great video & inspiration for all, regardless of religions. I thought so too! Even tho' I'm juz a Bitch (a female canine), I hope all canine/pet owners can love their animals as much as this father did his son, regardless of how mischievious we're when young, or how ill when we're old... Our only wish is for our human(s) to be there with us til the end juz like this father did his son.

Go on & be inspired today!

Nothin is impossible, through true love, faith & strength.

If an earthly father's able to do almost the impossible for his son, what more 'bout a Heavenly Father above.

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. Now we, who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves.
