Soldiers Come Home

One of my student’s boyfriend was in Iraq. He came home three weeks ago. I excused her absences from class to go to Ft. Hood to welcome him home.

Andy, a man who grew up in my church, is coming back to church tonight after a year in Fallujah and a few weeks at home with his newlywed bride. (I think they’ve now been married 14 months.) The church said we were having a welcome home party at 6. The boys have been feeling ill today, but I think we are going to go now.

I hope they all make it home safely. Even though I know they won’t.
