Prep star hits game-winning shot for perfect season, falls and dies – Prep Rally – High School Blog – Yahoo! Sports

Fenville (Michagan) basketball star, Wes Leonard, was responsible for the winning basket in his team’s win over Bridgman (Michigan) High, but a sad unexpected fateful incident happened during the team’s celebration on their victory.

Wes suddenly collapsed on court and was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Team coach Ryan Klinger had all praises for Wes as very courteous and had always exuded optimism in his ways.

He is a great loss in this world  but Pinoy Blogger (PB) prays that in his stead come forth thousands more, although much better if multiplied in millions, who would be inspired by his positive attitude in life.

What triggered the untimely demise of this remarkable teenage athlete who his coach shared as having cared much for his body, is to date mysterious and baffling.

God moves in mysterious ways.  We never can tell when we are called.

Things happen in our life so fast, even with our love ones, sometimes, when we least expect it.

In Revelation 16:15, St. John wrote of Almighty God’s message to all men, “Behold, I come like a thief! Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.”

What is important are ready in both body and spirit to accept death?  If not, when will we be ready?

If the time comes, will we still have to time to tell God to wait?

When we see our love ones depart from us, do we not feel a loss or a void in our life which we know we cannot redo, alter, rewind or edit?

While we have time living in this world, will it not be more worthwhile if we do cherish the presence of our love ones in our midst and show our care, love, humility, understanding and forgiveness that our life and theirs may become more blessed, happier and more meaningful as we move forward instead of blaming each other for what we know we can only learn from … as we can never undo the past?

Christ states in Matthew 6:27, “Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?” and adds further in Matthew 6:34, “Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble (or evil) of its own.”

Blessed are those who continue do good and inspire us in this life and those who have gone, as we pray for eternal peace of their soul as they rejoin our Heavenly Father, our Almighty God and Creator.

As in Matthew 6:33, Jesus tell his disciples, “… seek first His (God’s) kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

Let us continue to pray for guidance in this world as we KJOH.
