Boots on the Ground, A Fathers thoughts

Written by Staff

It is very rare for me to share with so many strangers on Facebook anything about my private life. Today I am making the exception. Today has been a very emotional day, after a year of what I will call the Love of a Father for his Son and knowing that I might never be able to hold him again in my arms. Fearing the dreams of a Flag covered casket or a young man coming home with limbs missing and unable to function as he had when he left. Today I held my breath at every thought of hearing the words I so longed to hear, Every phone call was met with a quick and short almost whisper... Hello? As I was praying to hear my son say, "Dad, I am back on American soil!" I am home and I will see you soon. I held tears of joy back every time I thought about hearing those words. Knowing he was safe and out of harms way. No more strangers in another country that have never had the chance to know him and only wished death on him while he was there to help make their life that much better then it is now, They did not know he had a Father back home who raised him to help others and to love life and others. They knew nothing of him having a family of his own, A wife a son and two loving daughters. He went to their country because he wanted to. He asked to go so he could help them make a difference in the way of life they have suffered through all these many years... Oh we talked and shared times together almost daily with the availability of the technology we have but nothing has been invented that can ever replace that Father Son Hug that I have so longed for these past months. 

At around noon today I got a picture message on my cell phone that showed a young mans legs and boots standing on a shadow of his outline and a short message that said..."Hey Big Guy... Boots on the ground! AMERICAN soil!" I will not even try to tell you what I felt at that moment, I can say the people in the restaurant we were at had no doubt that something happened as I jumped up in a burst of tear and shouted THANK YOU JESUS and as promised I preformed my version of a Happy dance. A few text messages later I told him SON PLEASE CALL ME I CAN NOT TAKE THIS MUCH LONGER.... he did.. you know what... I could not talk well, I sobbed and snot was flowing with the tears of joy, I tried hard to talk with him but all I could get out was I LOVE YOU SON and a few Thank you Jesus! 

I shared this with you tonight, as I wanted to say it has been one Hell of an emotional year for me as a Father. I know my wife has her story as well and that is hers to share. But as the night falls and the next morning awaits I feel as if the whole world has been lifted off of me. I will shut off the TV tonights I go to sleep and all the News feeds on my phones and tablets waiting to see where the next tragic incident happened over there and wonder if the Father that was back here in the states knew his son was lost or injured how he would react. If he felt what I felt everyday and every night these past 12 months... I have no words to offer and in noway am I gloating that my son has returned safe and sound. There are thousands of fathers who will never be able to hug their sons neck and tell them they love him... So when I do see my son, I will promise this... I am hugging him for ALL those fathers and I will pass along I Love you as I am there with my son. 

I rambled here but just wanted to share what a Father's Love is for his Son. His only Son. Then I think of our God, who Gave his only son to die for ALL of us so we can have eternity. Just that right there stops me cold and I stand here and admit, God is an Awesome God and he is a FAR better being then I could ever be. Thank you Jesus for bringing my son home safely.
