This is a true story, and it was the character that I have named "Ken" who told me this story.

He showed up to the first summer basketball camp absolutely plastered, and they cut him and his scholarship on the spot.

This is a set of three stories, all of which are true. The first one was just a pleasant childhood memory that recalled better days and memories, but the second one "The Gift" is just as true as the first. The third one "The Clock" is about a serious heart surgery I had just about Christmas time. After you listen to "A Christmas Miracle - Keep Your Eyes Open!", you'll better understand why I stress that this story is true, just as it was written. It asks for your faith in miracles and maybe, just maybe, your faith in a kind and loving God.
