Last Independence day will forever be a special day for me. It will forever be my most treasured Fourth of July. We packed up to head downtown that morning with a van full of friends from Colonial. On the way down we stopped to grab some KFC for lunch. When we arrived downtown we were able to find a nice pavilion with some picnic tables for lunch. After lunch we played some pick up football and waited for the fireworks display. It was a great night full of energy and lots of laughs. Just three weeks after we enjoyed a cookout and fireworks in downtown Indianapolis Chad and Courtney would be ushered into eternity. The memories of July 4, 2013 have often come back to me in the weeks and months that followed the accident in July 27th. I had no idea that Joe Frank had been filming the whole time! Thank you Joe for filming what will forever be one of my fondest memories.
I trust that as you watch this touching tribute to the lives and testimonies of Chad and Courtney you will once again be reminded of the brevity of life. The Bible tells us that "whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's" (Romans 14:8). Chad and Courtney lived lives dedicated to the Christ that saved them and their testimony has forever impacted many people around the globe. As you watch this video ask yourself, "What kind of legacy am I leaving?"
