Glad to make my mom happy with the little things in this life… She is just happy to have some of her family with her…… Making her SMILE is indeed a goal that I strive to meet daily with God’s direction.
Jaleel Gipson,#33, died after a tragic injury suffered in a Spring tackle drill
A high school junior, Gipson was lined up as a running back on the play that left him injured. While carrying the ball, he was hit in a traditional shoulder-on-shoulder tackle. Instead of bouncing back up, Gipson couldn’t raise himself from the ground. An athletic trainer was on site and attended to Gipson immediately while the team awaited paramedics, who transported the back to a local hospital and then to LSU via helicopter.
While it initially appeared that Gipson might be able to regain motor functions –Farmerville Principal David Gray stated the injury that the school was holding out hope he would make a complete recovery — the teen’s condition deteriorated much in the days that followed, to the point that his family apparently began to realize on Sunday that he would not recover mental capabilities.
That’s when the Gipson family apparently decided to keep their son on life support long enough to prepare his body for organ donation. Once that process was complete on Monday, the Gipson family said its goodbyes and removed him from life support.
It was nice to see my son STILL “promoting his faith” even though his friend was over the weekend….. He did NOT appear to be embarrassed or ashamed which made me VERY happy!
Age does not mater and if you are able to speak and think, then SHARING about Jesus Christ is do -able! The weekend was interesting and went how GOD wanted it to go!
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
A witness is a person who tells what he knows. Our job is to tell lost people what we know about the Lord Jesus Christ and His saving grace. A religion worth having is a religion worth propagating. If you are saved, it’s because someone took the time to witness to you. Well, YOU should witness to others. Tell others what Jesus has done for you, and what He can do for them. Learn some good salvation verses from your Bible and tell others! Invite friends and family members to attend church services with you so they too can hear the Gospel and be saved.
Before you were saved you were like a candle without a flame. Then God took one of His lighted candles (a Christian– Mat. 5:15) and gave you light. Now He wants to use you to give light to others.
One hundred years from now, you won’t value the time you spent watching television, playing sports, or being entertained, but you’ll place great value on the time you spent trying to bring lost souls to the Lord Jesus Christ. So now is the time to purpose in your heart that eternity is what matters most and your life needs to be filled with eternal investments. Your Lord and Saviour said, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Mat. 6:19-21)
