Mixed Feelings

Last weekend we were rejoicing at the news that one of our relatives, who has been serving with the Armed Forces in Afghanistan, has got back to Britain safely, only to to read today of further British troop deaths.

He has served two stretches, each of six months duration, in Iraq and two six month stretches in Afghanistan, all without serious injury, and has now left the Armed Forces in order to spend time with his family, and is now working in the UK.

We are so glad he is safe, yet sorrowing for those forces families grieving the loss of their loved ones.

Lord, have mercy and grant those families comfort..........
