You Would be so Blessed

Nick Charles, one of the original hosts for national sports highlight shows, was among CNN's first on-air personalities. He is still working, concentrating on boxing broadcasts for Showtime and Versus while battling stage 4 bladder cancer.
You would be so blessed to visit Nick Charles, a man I never knew of until today, the day of his death; or more accurately, the day of his new life in Eternity.
Thank you, Mr. Charles, for touching my heart today.
Love IS the only thing that remains.
Thank you for the Life Lessons.

That was the most AMAZING, heart-wrenching and utterly beautiful article I think I have read.
Especially when he said he was ready to go and he knew Christ was in the room with him, for comfort, saying it was not his time.
Thank you for posting this Deb.
It is easy for someone to SAY they believe but to LIVE that you believe and share it?
That is the the rare person; the essential task.

Well, Deb, I now know Nick Charles, thanks to you. I just read the story and watched several videos. What an amazing man, to live his life these past few years with such grace. I admire anyone who speaks of their faith openly and having a faith so strong to not fear leaving this world behind ~ looking forward to their time in eternity.
Thank you, Deb. It was a blessing to read about him and learn from him.
