The Resurrection Run Revisited

56/365 morning run

By Bob Comeans

I finally gave in.

Last Saturday I ran in my first ever 5K road race. Well, ran, is a subjective term. Let’s just say I was putting one foot in front of another to achieve forward motion. I was able to keep this up for about forty one of the longest minutes I’ve experienced in quite a while.

This had all started about six weeks earlier at our church, Legacy Christian, when Pastor Roy Roberson started talking about “The Resurrection Run.”

Just a nice little activity to get people out into nature, exercising, and to raise a litte money for the Coweta Pregnancy Services. Not sure if it was to prevent, or promote, the before mentioned services. Never did find out, but I trust that it was all good. Continue reading

Murder. Anguish, Hope, and I Try to Survive

Many years ago I knew a fine young man.

He was popular, had a great personality, and could play the piano so well he could make you cry. We would go to the movies, get a pizza, or just hang out. He was about my height, with blonde hair and brown eyes.

He had a wonderful sense of humor, and especially liked to tease with his parents. He was a great kid who dressed as Santa for the younger neighbor children at Christmas. He always had a big candy cane for the little boy next door.

Norman Rockwell would have loved to paint this family. This young man had loving parents, two brothers, and a sister. God was good to this family.

I was eight years older than him, but he was one of my best friends.

This normal, well-adjusted teenager entered high school, but he didn’t finish. He entered ninth grade, but he didn’t finish. Continue reading

They Were Rock Stars

Old ladies

By Bob Comeans

I spent Friday night with 21,000 of my new friends at the local indoor arena. We were all there, to see and hear, the latest world tour of a popular musician.

She did a great job. Amazing voice, athletic body, great choreography, rocking dancers, awesome set and lighting, and a sold out house. Continue reading

Three Kidney Donors, Moms Who Gave To Save, A Son and A Brother

I have three women in my life who are special.

They all have several things in common.

One, they all know me, which in itself really isn’t anything special. Two, they really don’t think they are anything special, and three, they are living kidney donors which, in my mind, makes them pretty darn special.

Living kidney donors, what does that mean, exactly? Continue reading

Daddy, Cancer, and a Beautiful Journey Home

By Bob Comeans

Dad never knew. By the time he was diagnosed with lung cancer he was sedated into unconsciousness, on a respirator, and lying in an intensive care unit.

I had received the phone call twelve hours earlier from my sister in Ohio, “Dad’s having trouble breathing. We’re going to the hospital.”

I got in the car and drove for nine hours. Continue reading
