Seeing The Light…After 30 Years

Barbara Kesterson contacted us, sending along a photograph and the tale of the rock she found 30 years ago in Korea that has the image of Jesus on it. “I found the rock in 1982 while I was stationed in Pohang, Korea, with the U.S. Army. I have always loved collecting rocks and have found some pretty amazing ones during my travels with the military. But this one is the most amazing. I actually found it while hiking in Seoul, Korea, with a couple of locals. We made many trips to temples and it was always quite a walk. I don’t really recall which temple we were hiking to on this particular trip.  I kept the rock because I was a lonely soldier farther from home than I had ever been and was missing my family.  I took it as a sign that Jesus was with me and I was not alone.” 

“I did get quite the look from the movers when it was time for me to pack up and head stateside. The only thing they required of me was to put a coat of polyurethane on the rocks that I brought back with me. Some are just rocks that grabbed my fancy at the time and there is another rock that holds the image of a rabbit, although others see a dog. Needless to say I came close to exceeding the weight limit for my belongings.”

“Well, this rock and I have been together for 30 years, which is longer than my marriage lasted, lol.  Some see Jesus in the rock and others see just a rock.  I hope you see what I saw as a young soldier of 22.”
