Not to complain, But today the 24th. Is my birthday so we start work at 7:15am. One good thing it is not as hot as it could be.

After a morning of mapping out projects Dave and I returned to St. Therese School, you never go to the same place only once in the same day. There are always reasons to go back and forth. Sort of like a home project thinking only one trip to Home Depot will do. I am always in awe as I watch Dave work on a project. He thinks everything through and always comes up with a solution and makes things happen. Having me there is a sort of Lenten penance for him.  (Dave adding ... most of the time, aside from needing multiple visits to the supply store, the solutions have to be rather creative ... not the right tool, broken drill bit, 2x4's that really are 2" x 4" that are too thick for many things we do.  And Jack's wry wit always brings my sweaty head back into perspective ... irrespective of Lenten penance for either of us!)

We have been here two days and have witnessed a second funeral. There is a procession through the city with hymns and the mourners following the casket. A touching site that brings the suffering to reality and really part of the community. Tomorrow the 25th. We are going to witness the feeding of the homeless community at St. Louis. Another witness of the two Cathedrals so far apart in distance and resources but striving to be disciples of Jesus.

It is almost dinner time and having primed myself with a couple bottles of Prestige it is time to bid good night and thank the Lord for a good birthday and having a very small part in the work of the Lord.

Peace. Jack
