My husband and I are in a small group that meets every Thursday evening. There is a couple in our group who have a son in the Army. I remember this young man from when he was a gangly teenager playing in the high school band with one of my boys.
He's been in Afghanistan, and just returned to the States. His parents have aways seemed pretty calm about him, though, of course, our group always prayed for his safety. Tonight his mom admitted to us that the whole time he was gone she was afraid to answer the door whenever anyone knocked on it. Now she can relax.
So, today I'm thankful that Seth is back home safe and sound.
