Thursday, July 30, 2009

When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it's bottomless, that it doesn't have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space.

Last night for reflection we were each given a stamped envelope to reconnect with someone with whom we have lost touch with.

The weather this week continues to be wet, which makes the work rather challenging, especially roofs. We finished up in Matheny and Sabine, with rather early days. Volunteers also pretty much finished up in Bud. It was another successful and rewarding week.

A mighty group of PVs went to St. Vincent DePaul in Pineville to help organize the warehouse. Two truckloads of donations were dropped off earlier in the week, so their help was much needed and appriciated.

The Under the Sea Camp continued with hermit crab and craw daddy races, and rehearsals for the much anticipated play tomorrow. Can't wait to see the final product! Once again after camp the crew headed over to help at the Itmann Food Bank.

We are being treated tonight with a Peruvian dinner...can't wait to taste the scrumptious feast.
