Just Like Jesus

My blogging buddy Claire (Pilot Mom) posted this picture on her site. What an incredible story! The picture says it all.

Note: Please keep Claire in your prayers. Her mom is close to "going home". THANKS!

Caption reads:

Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, of the 332nd Expeditionary Medical Group at Balad, Iraq, cradles a young girl as they both sleep in the hospital. The girl's entire family was executed by insurgents; the killers shot her in the head as well. The girl received treatment at the U.S. military hospital in Balad, but cries and moans often. According to nurses at the facility, Gebhardt is the only one who can calm down the girl, so he has spent the last several nights holding her while they both sleep in a chair.

Friends, isn't that just like Jesus!
