The Love of A Father for His Son!

I am posting this because it is way to powerful not to share with you all! This video shows just how much a father can love his son. In this case he loved him enough to say yes when asked if he would run the Ironman with his son! I am warning you right now to have a box of tissues ready because you are going to need it!

The following post came from Jo at http://all-about-friendship.blogspot.com/2008/12/fathers-love.html Check out her blog it is wonderful and uplifting!


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 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.

I had heard about this father and son, but I'd never seen the video. It's such a beautiful story and speaks not only of the love of earthly parents, but that of a heavenly Father who gave that dad strength to do that for and with his son.

Great post.
