Inspiring Story on Endurance

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" too. For those who don'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.

Whew, almost ten times I watched this video and still can't avert from shedding tears...what a great act of true and pure love,just like how our Father in heaven loved humanity dearly! I appreciate and treasure this video very much because of the touching love expressed. This will remind people not to quit when things become worse and give love instead. God loves us unconditionally and He is present among us in a powerful way through His son & is pouring out His grace on us through Him. Great things could happen in our lives for the lord is with us. Make ourself present to Him and open ourselves to the new work of God in Jesus. To love and to be loved purely,is such a wonderful feelings one can get and give best. Let's make this chaotic and yet wonderful world be filled with love. God bless and be with us all!
