"Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart."  

Sarah Ban Breathmnach

Today we woke up to another toasty day, with the heat index well into the 100's. Despite the heat, lots of wonderful work was done.  Volunteers started working on a couple sets of steps for our friend, Foxy Lady, up in Wyco.  Volunteers also began work at a site up in Brenton at the home of one of our Home Repair class students.  Unfortunately we will only be able to work there a couple of days this summer, but we hope to return in the spring.  The final two sites were the completion of the site in Mullens (yay!) and the continuing finishing touches on the site over in Hanover.

For dinner we feasted on a wonderful, yet simple, meal of beans, rice and chicken.  Yums yums in the tums tums.  For those that braved the thunderstorm in the evening, s'mores were toasted over the grill for dessert.

Reflection for the evening focused on the Ignation way of reflection, the Examen of Consciousness.  We each were asked to reflect on our day using this technique.  It was nice to look at reflection in a new way.
