"Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of nonessentials."  Lin Yutang

We ended last evening with a beautiful reflection on how bad things that happen to us so often turn into a suprisingly good thing.  There was a heartfelt sharing of some of these examples from our own lives as well as good things from the day. The PV community gathering together at the end of the day is really a special and blessed time.

This morning we woke up to a little more cloud cover than we have had the last couple of days and even a little bit of rain that later turned into torrential downpours at differenct points in different parts of the county.

Today we continued on with the flood site and with soccer camp. These two sites are lasting all week and a lot of volunteers are involved.  Every volunteer is doing a wonderful job and are continuing to give their love, sweat and tears to people they are encountering.

Today we also started the Glen Fork Summer Tutoring program.  We were very happy to have 5 kids show up for the first day.  This is the biggest first day of PV Tutoring history!  It shows the importance of continuity and building on each summer.  This first day would not have been so successful with each and every tutoring program of the last 5 years.

Tonight we have a school full of tired, but satisfied volunteers eagerly awaiting a comforting meal of ham and macaroni and cheese.
