Unconditional love in action… (Video)

rick-hoyt-dick-hoyt

This video is just a glimpse into the story of Rick & Dick Hoyt*. I find it to be a living depcition of  unconditional love in action between a father & son…  Just a tiny fraction of the love that Our Father has for us. Every time I see it, I am encouraged that I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength. If you want a pick-me-up, joy-booster, or you just need to smile, then watch…

*The story of Rick and Dick Hoyt. A son asked his father, ‘Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?’ The father who, 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’ to. 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.
