Komo 4 did a news segment about Nick (and me, I guess) and the Seahawks that first aired on last night’s 11 o’clock news and also did a radio story about the Hawks and Nick’s legacy as well. Two different reporters and two different angles. Both very cool.
I also found out that Nick’s video on FaithIt (a website whose goal is to spread the word that God is awesome) is one of their top most viewed videos right now. Wow.
I am so incredibly thankful that our story is being shared. I am so insanely happy that it’s being spread. Not for me, and not even for Nick. But, for God. I hope that it gives just one more person, or many more people, a look at the amazing hope that we have in Jesus.
As joy-filled as I am, I miss Nick like crazy…
I wish that I could see his face light up when I tell him how many views his YouTube video has.
I wish I could have seen him jump and shout when he found out I was going to the Super Bowl.
I wish I could have seen his smile when his little girl took her first little step yesterday.
What’s great though is that I know just what he would say (an awesome bonus when you have spent almost every waking minute with someone for over 5 years…) First, “Are you serious?” and then, “Alyssa!!! That is amazing!!” and finally, “Good job, bug. Daddy is so proud.”
God never said this life would be easy. Being a “Christian” or following Jesus will not make you or your life perfect. You WILL struggle. You WILL be challenged. You WILL face obstacles that will seem too difficult to overcome. But, God is there. He is next to you. He walks in front of you. And, there is hope in Him. There is undeniable joy in even the worst of pains. There is a joy that surpasses understanding.
