Coaching Football's "Little Things"

Developing a Consistently Successful Football Program

Prioritizing

Posted by admin October - 16 - 2013 - Wednesday

It’s always interesting to me how life takes these little bumpy paths— right when you least expect it. Life is good and God is even better!!! I have a LOT to be thankful for.

Then, I go to my urologist this morning for my checkup and he drops the bomb on me! “Your PSA levels continue to be too high. I want to do a biopsy to check for the possibility of prostate cancer.” Gulp! I wasn’t expecting that.

I have been praying on a daily basis for 3 women who all are battling cancer. Two of them are moms of my football players– the other is a member of the church community group that I lead. I take this duty very seriously. It’s kinda hard to wrap my head around the fact that now I need to ask prayers of others that this is just a “false alarm.” You get to my age and I’m just thankful for good health and a joyful life. I will be putting to the test what my Christianity teaches me: “Live each day full of joy and peace; loving Jesus and serving others.”

THAT is my priority (more than ever) till we get the results of the biopsy.
