One Sunday morning before church a few weeks ago our kids were eating breakfast at the snack bar and Nathan was facing them leaning against the sink with his arms folded…waiting for the coffee to brew most likely. Jackson piped up with a tough guys voice and yelled “Dad! You have Iron Man arms!” We all got a good laugh out of that but I’ll tell you what…I am very thankful for Nathan’s strong “iron man arms”! Those big papa bear hugs are just the comfort I need each and every day.
I once heard a story about a little girl who was afraid and asked her mommy to stay with her while she fell asleep. Her mom told her…just like we always tell our children…that she didn’t have to be afraid because Jesus was always with her. The little girl responded… “But mommy tonight I need Jesus to have skin on.” I praise God and thank Him for all of those who are continuously Jesus with “skin on” to me…His hands and feet… “Iron Man” included.
