At that time, over a year ago, he was waiting for a heart transplant after living with half a heart for over 36 years. He also happened to have a three year old daughter named Eden. I continued to follow his blog - intrigued by his inspirational writing and beautiful music. On September 9th, after waiting more than a year, he finally received a new heart. I continue to follow his story and those of others he highlights with failing hearts. They not only give me hope, they also provide perspective and a larger family for which I feel we belong.
You, too, can read his blog here and listen to more of his music here. I dare you to buy one of his CDs - you won't regret it - I listen to mine so much that I chose to support him (even though he doesn't know it, or me) by sending some as Christmas gifts.
Again, I really hope your season was bright. What a blessing this year has been!
