A Picture Worth a Thousand Words

Kevin e-mailed me some photos from Iraq today. Priceless!! They were taken by his Commander and the Commander's driver. This is my favorite of the bunch.


Kevin's graduating class at CHOBC (Chaplain Officer Basic Course) chose as their motto "Walk Among Them." The Chaplain brings into the battle arena a touch of God's closeness, a reminder of the reality of eternal things in the midst of battle, and a person to turn to for comfort and counsel. This picture captures that so well--Kevin kneeling to minister to a soldier at his post.

WOW! You know I know it's real what's going on over there but seeing that photo of Kevin doing his job really touched my heart. It is strange to see a Chaplain there over a soldier with a gun. I guess I will just wish for their safety and that's all I can do!
