Cake is good but water is better

Some of the worksites have their walls together because their slab was already in place. However, the site Victor was asked to assist with not only did not have a slab they did not have a foundation and not only that but the foundation walls were three and a half feet deep. That meant there needed to be a ton + of fill to get the foundation poured without draining the bank with cement cost. Today they formed a bucket line filling each bucket with rocks and passing them along a line of 7 or 8 people. The work was hot, heavy and draining (the person filling the buckets was relieved every 15 minutes) but by the end of the day it was done and the foundation was being poured. See the LHCC Facebook for pics from Victor.
This morning Matt Somerfield reminded us that God's love is more like a river than a cake. If more than one person receives a cake they have to divide it up with each receiving a piece. But with a river no matter how many people dip their buckets into the river it's flow replenishes and there is a full bucket for everyone.
