A tragic story has just unfolded off the field for an NFL player. In a new article, former Bears and Chargers player, Tommie Harris, open-end up about losing his wife.
Harris discussed his emotions and how his wife passed away just a month into their marriage. She was suddenly taken from this earth due to a brain aneurysm. However, something amazing happened just before she passed.
Harris talked about a special moment that happened to him, and his wife, only 11 days before she passed. In a recent interview, he opened up about the event.
“I remember sitting in an auditorium with my wife and I was watching a man come up there also and talk about how he lost his wife,” the footballer explained. “As I was sitting there in the audience, I was only married for 30 days. I didn’t know that only 11 days later I would lose my wife.”
“I’ve realized that death is something that happens in life; it is not a thing that happens to life,” he said. Make life count. Make it count! I don’t care what it is. When was the last time you took a big deep breath? Right now, take a deep one. Let it out. As long as you have that in your body, you’ve got the Brady effect. At any moment, I’ve got time on the clock, I can come back at any moment. I know things happen in my life, but I can make a change at any moment.”
Harris went on to read some scripture. He is extremely reliant on his faith in our Lord! He even read Psalm 30:5.
“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
“We’ve been made to endure the night, and our joy will come in the morning,” Harris concluded.
