Arms of Love

soldierandbaby.jpg This article has had worldwide attention, but with all of the negative press and what seems like unrelenting troop bashing, I feel compelled to post it here. It’s a wonderful example of light beaming from darkness.

This story hits me a couple of ways. I am thankful for and proud of our young men and women of the armed forces. Many of whom have made the ultimate sacrifice.

The story also hits me as a father. Though my daughter is nearly 18, I remember as if it were yesterday holding her like Sgt. Gebhardt is holding the baby Iraqi girl in the photo. There’s nothing like the comfort of holding a child while they sleep…safe in daddy’s arms, content and with complete trust. I imagine that’s how our heavenly Father longs for us to feel about Him.

God bless Sgt. Gebhardt, our troops and God bless The United States of America.
