Music to share with the Community of Remembrance
I recognize, as Mary has shared, that there is a Community of Remembrance -- a circle of faith -- surrounding me while I serve my time here in Iraq. Kat has shared music that carries sentiments of that community, affirming the words of Bill Staines to me, "you take our love with you"; Ken expresses appreciation for heroes in his corner of the world, and generously includes me among them; Randy, a Vietnam Veteran and dear friend, has poured his heart into support and appreciation for "what [I'm] going through" in
comments on this blog, and that means the world to me.
To all of you, and everyone else I should be mentioning: thank you. Keep the fire burning. I'll be home soon.
By the way, this post was supposed to include an MP3 file of a song I composed and sing (Kat: help!!), and it's not looking like I'm getting the linking to audioblog figured out. I will get it to you somehow. I'm trying. It is beautiful, and it matches tone with this discussion of support and homeward looking. Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart.
