A Little Luck

Today's post comes straight from our weekend newspaper. Meet Tony Williams, I snapped his photos from our local paper. Tony needs a heart transplant, and is wearing a backpack to power his heart while he waits. You might say he needs a little luck. And last Wednesday, that is exactly what he found. Right in his own front yard! See the extremely rare nine leaf clover. Very, very rare. Williams is keeping it in a cup of water for now, but is willing to donate it to a museum for kids and others to see. He enjoys hunting for four leaf clovers with his daughter. I hope he gets his heart, a little luck couldn't hurt.


“But God's not finished. He's waiting around to be gracious to you. He's gathering strength to show mercy to you. God takes the time to do everything right—everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones.”
Isaiah 30:18

I hope Tony will be able to get a new heart soon, Ginny! Although it's kind of bittersweet because that means someone else's loved one will have to pass away.
Hope you're having a good week, my friend.♥

What an interesting photo and moving situation. Thanks for sharing both, Ginny! It was touching that Tony can still find pleasure doing a simple outdoor activity with his daughter. Not all dads spend that kind of time and attention on their little ones.

I never even knew there was such a thing as a 9 leaf clover!

I hope he gets his heart soon!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I pray that he gets a new heart very soon! I didn't know there were 9 leaf clovers, I remember looking for and finding 5 leaf clovers when I was a kid. I think it's sweet that he spends time with his daughter looking.

Stephanie V said...

Four leaf clovers are rare enough! A nine leaf? Amazing! Thsis should definitely get his luck going in the right direction.

SweetMarie said...

This is a very touching story Ginny. I'm so glad you shared it. This man's daughter will always have her memories of hunting for clovers with her dad. It's our attention and time that our kids seek and remember most. I will keep this man in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh Ginny the verse you selected just gave me chills (good ones) because it is like the Lord speaking to Tony directly. I have added him to my prayer list. Please keep us/me updated on him. Thank you for always leaving such nice comments when you visit me. You are such a blessing to all who read your precious blog.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Ginny, Nice story to pass along. I hope that gentleman regains his health. Have a super nice day tomorrow!

Ann said...

was that real? I haven't even seen a 4-leaf one. What he needs is people praying for him when they see his photo.

My friend from church is having abrain surgery for cancer right today.

Karin said...

So exciting for him to find this unique clover! It's great that he wants to donate it so others can enjoy it too! He has an awesome heart already - now may the Lord bless him with one that physically functions as God has intended it to is my prayer! Keeps us updated!
