~Thankful Thursday~

Posted on: July 9, 2008

I want to take the opportunity every Thursday to write a little about what I am thankful for in this life.  God has given me SO many blessings in my life and I feel pressed to share with you weekly what the Lord is doing in my life and the lives around me.

Last Friday, 4th of July, a UofL wide receiver was shot outside a downtown Louisville nightclub early Saturday morning after an altercation inside.  He was shot in the back in a parking garage in downtown Louisville.  That parking garage is the very same garage my husband parks his car in while at work.  He could have been there when that gun went off…if it had not been a national holiday.  The wide receiver was shot at 19 times and had the bullet hit him four inches in another direction, University of Louisville could have lost a very valuable person…not just a player, but a person. Someone’s son, fiance, friend…you get it.

Most of the time when we hear about a football player involved in a club shooting you are likely to think…”Just another sports player getting in trouble.”  But you see, THIS player was kind, considerate, and some would call him “up-lifting”.  He worked on the team’s Habitat for Humanity house and would be the first one the coach goes to when bringing a recruit in town.  On this “Thankful Thursday“, I am also Thankful that this man was spared by our merciful God.  Please check out Sting My Heart for more reasons to be thankful.

What are you thankful for today?

Thanks for sharing your grateful heart, be blessed.

Wow, what a story!! I can’t imagine that….certainly your husband’s safety (even if by a holiday) is someting to be thankful for and Praise God the player was not killed.

Great post. I’m so glad your husband wasn’t in harms way, but am praying for the one who was. Bless his heart! Happy Thankful Thursday.

Oh my! I’m glad this didn’t occur when your husband was working. I’m thankful as well this wide receiver’s life was spared. God still has work and a plan for him.


God was still in control of the situation. I’m glad nobody died and that your husband wasn’t there.
