Mixed Emotions

I was home for lunch today and got a phone call from my son Stephen. He was in Fargo, North Dakota where he took the oath of enlistment into the United States Army. His reporting date is January 6th, 2010. Wow.

He will serve three years on active duty then transfer into the Army National Guard.

Pray for Stephen and for all of our servicemen and women. May God keep them all safe until their end of service.

Amen.

I am praying for him, and although he doesn't know me, please tell him I said thanks for his service.

John,
I will hold you all up in prayer and pray that the Lord will protect him and all that serve your country and ours. I would also have mixed feeling if it were our son Matt. The one thing you and your wife can have comfort in as we do also is he is a child of God and it is the will of God.
