Precious Memories- By Sonya Lakey
We had no idea that the evening of September 24th, 2021, would be the last night our family would be complete. We laughed together, played games, sang, and enjoyed listening as our oldest son played the piano for us. I packed a lunch for him (which he usually did for himself) for the church hike he was going on the following day.
My mom, who was visiting from out of state, and I got up early with him on Saturday morning to hug him and see him off. He hugged me and smiled, never pulling away or rushing me. He got in the car, waved, said he’d see me later and he loved me. It was hard to watch my "new driver" heading out on his own.
As he pulled out of the gate, I turned to my mom and said, "It’s just so hard letting go." Little did I know how much "letting go" I was really doing. That was the last time I saw our 16 year old son. He did not make it home that night.
That afternoon, a friend had tried to contact us, leaving a message on the phone to call back due to an emergency, but we really had no clue what was going on. And though we tried several times to return the call, we were not able to make a connection. As I helped prepare supper, an overwhelming feeling of deep concern for Ethan and dread filled my heart, and I quietly blinked back tears. I looked out the window, half expecting to see a police officer pulling in, but no.
However, within minutes, a police car DID pull in our driveway. In my heart, I feared the worst, but I went outside to speak with him. He confirmed who I and my husband (who followed me out) were, then hesitantly told us our son had fallen off a bluff and had succumbed to his injuries. Our hearts were crushed…. Still are.
Yet, in all of our brokenness, deep, continual grief and loneliness, we have such a blessed Hope and assurance that we will see our dear son again. You see, even as a young boy, Ethan realized some very important truths from God’s Word.
He had sinned against a righteous, holy and just God. The Bible says:
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; ” (Romans 3:23)
“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12)
He understood that his sin separated him from God, and he deserved to spend eternity in Hell.
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:31)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
He understood he could not pay the price for his sins.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Ethan realized that, ‘though he could not pay the price for his sins, the price had already been paid in full by the blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus lived a perfectly sinless life. He had no fault of His own. But Jesus was crucified for our sins, and He took on Himself the sins of every person in the whole world. He was beaten, spit on, whipped, mocked, scourged, and nailed to the Cross of Calvary. He shed every drop of His righteous blood – because that was the only thing that could satisfy the just demands of a righteous God – so we could be made righteous in Him. He suffered all of that so Ethan – and you and I – would not have to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire, but so we could spend eternity in Heaven with HIM! THAT is a great LOVE.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
Jesus did not stay on the cross, nor did He stay in the tomb where His body was buried. Three days later, Jesus arose triumphant over sin and death and the grave. Ethan believed this with his whole heart, asked Jesus to forgive his sins, and he put his faith in Jesus Christ ALONE to save him from sin and eternal death and to take him to Heaven someday.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” (John 10:28)
Because of this great salvation, Ethan lived his life serving Jesus and others. He worked hard to spread this Good News to the world. We know he is alive in Heaven with Jesus today, and we know we will see him again soon, not because he was a great kid, but because of his faith in the great Saviour!
What about you? What if you had fallen to your death that day? Would your family, though grieving, be able to rejoice in the knowledge that they would see you again in Heaven, or would you be burning in Hell today?
The Word of God is very clear that there is only One Way to Heaven. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
Have YOU trusted Jesus as YOUR Saviour? Have you repented of your sins? Have you asked Jesus to forgive you so you can go to Heaven & not have to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire? Tomorrow may be too late. As Ethan pulled out of sight that morning, we had no idea we would never see him again in this life. None of us have the promise of tomorrow! Repent of your sins and put your faith in Jesus alone – today!
“(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2 Corinthians 6:2)
"Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." James 4:14￼
Sad that there’s not even close to the amount of people who would normally be in Time Square for the Ball Drop.
10 years ago, America saw Dick Clark count down on his final year on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. Since then, the show wasn’t the same anymore. But as we all normally do, we press on and start fresh in his honor. Dick, we thank you and miss you.
Celebrity we’ve lost this year!
Betty – Sunday, May 29
Happy New Year
Missed it this year trying to find the TV remote that my son hid, Glad it’s recorded lol. Happy new year!
Rip Betty White
the countdown was way better this year than 2021. the black theme with the analog clock in the sky is pretty modern imo
I missed it because of a 5g version ad 😐
Anyone else cried? 😢
I’m so happy to see a lot more people at the ball drop than last year meaning things are slowly getting back to normal.
Why isn’t everyone wearing a mask and staying safe socal distancing 6ft away.?
Happy New Year! I was there too. Video on my channel!
Same old shit! Not thing changes for new year celebration in NYC.
Happy New Year! Happy 2022! Wishing everyone peace, love, and good health in the new year. Last nights show was better than last years.
It is such a shame that the country of "Freedom" is so bound by money and advertising, so be it advertising foreign companies even. Last year it happened the same, KIA rules the ball cuz they paid the most… Money is definitely the most important thing for the USA. This is the message portrayed by the States to the whole world. Every other developed country uses this special moment to send a message of love, hope and things more meaningful than lizards. Just look at London, UK 2021 and 2022, Australia, Dubai even… Even the countdown clock wasn’t synced with the ticking sound… With the amount of tech on the street available and the tech power of USA you could easily blow away every other country with a spectacular light, fireworks or any other show, yet the screens on Times Square displayed the same cold capitalistic advertisements, as they did in 2021 – still in 2022 they are the same. Very well done ‘merica.
Did Anyone else notice that it hit 12am before the timer hit zero
Happy new year to everyone so glad we didn’t get to go through 32nd dec 2021
We were watching it Live. 1st year ever the ball didn’t drop, clearly it did seeing this video a day late was there something wrong with ABC before midnight? Broke for commercial when the ball was suppose to drop.
Happy new years
So ummmmm…. What happened to covid-19? Did it all of a sudden disappear for this to happen? And then maybe today there’ll be multiple cases lol jk I don’t give a shit. Im glad that y’all finally had the fucking balls to step outside of your home and celebrate the New Years. Unlike some people who probably stayed home in their mamas basement
This video didnt show the ball dropping!!
Happy new year 2022
I wish my country had this type of countodwn but cant by covid 19 😭
Did everyone remember 10 years of 2012
We did it
"Grab someone you love. Grab someone you know." Bonus if they are the same person.
Crap, I can’t believe a forgot to watch this! Oh well, better luck next year.
It’d be better if you got to see the ball rise and explode into fireworks
Happy new year God bless this big year to make my dreams come true God bless 🙏❤️
1 of my dreams
Happy new year 2022!
I was adding items to my Amazon cart and missed it….LOL….Happy New Year!!
Imagine if there was only 1 second left and a nuclear just explodes the whole earth lol
Best new years countdown. Happy New year 2022 everyone.💖
Dear ABC. To Celebrate 2022, can you please send ABC’s Bet On Your Baby to Netflix please? It never popped up on Netflix in a bunch of years! Please consern my idea when it’s available on Netflix, it will pop up on Worth The Wait, and it’s coming January 28th!
Happy more bogey virus variants with dumb names. 🤭
Did you guys see how she ruined Ryan Secrests New Years show last night!! It was SUPER EMBARRASSINGLY CRINGE! she kept using the same preschool jokes over and over and she EMBARRASSED THE HELL OUT OF RYAN SECREST ANDTHE GANG! thank GOD Ciara and Jesse were there to save it even though it was still ruined! Ryan secrest should be soooo embarrassed to have had her included there last night. I. This show she is actually making fun of will smith’s wife Jada for going bald – don’t forget what she had to do with Will in order to get these “Gigs” that she EMBARRASSINGLY keeps ruining! It so embarrassing just looking at her! There must be a lot more men than just Will Smith that she laid with in order to still be lasting!
Why didn’t ABC upload the full video 🤦🏽♂️
So, disgusted. Outside of Journey, I missed Walker Hayes performance because I was watching NASHVILLES NEW YEAR’S EVE SPECIAL, those were the only performances worth it. This is one person who will not be watching Dick Clark’s special. DISGUSTING
