Tribute to a hero - Wayman Tisdale

In life you get very few heroes!  Most are family members for me, who have lived before my eyes amazing lives!  People like my mom, dad, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, grandparents, father and mother-in-law, even wife and kids, but they are MY gifts!  As a former athlete, I have only a few that I really looked up too.  Most are older like Willie Mays, and Hank Aaron, but one younger man is now on my list.  He lived an incredible life, and is more famous for his smile than his athletic talent and musical ability.

That man is WAYMAN TISDALE!















Wayman has gone on to glory, but like Brian Piccolo, what a life he lived and what a legacy he left!  These video clips are just a few of the lasting moments he left behind!  A GREAT basketball player who became an even greater jazz muscian and inspired many including me to keep a smile on your face and never give up!  He lived out my favorite verse from Joshua 1:9, "Be strong and very courageous, be not afraid or dismayed, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go".

No matter what you may be going through, God want to use you to inspire others while encouraging yourself!  That's a life well lived.  "Big Ups" to a Big Man in Sports, Music, Life and now the Kingdom of God!  Much love and thanks Wayman!
