I'm killing a few minutes at the MWR, unofficially (or perhaps officially) dubbed "The White Elephant" because it is a large, white building, since I am a few minutes early to practice for tomorrow's church service. Although the Balad team misses me, it seems the folks here at Al Asad were in even more desperate circumstances, asking for a drummer, female voices, and a keyboardist. One out of three isn't bad.

Last Sunday some others and I remarked about the beautiful stained glass windows in the chapel. Being new on base, I hadn't realized that they are a new addition. A very new addition, as a matter of fact. It turns out a Navy petty officer (a Seabee, for CB, construction battalion) volunteered the time, and got donations from home, to make these beautiful windows. You can read about it and see a picture of one of the windows here. It's a great addition!

Wow, great window! And, somebody made them who really knew the architectural and structural needs, so it's a very professional job.

Love to my Godson, take care of yourself. God Bless.
