Our Pass Christian High School kids got prom dresses, accessories and tuxes from a high school in Connecticut.

The Humane Society of South Mississippi moved out of the Katrina damaged building into a great new facility. Grants, donations and labor from around the country came pouring in to help.

Our neighborhood Chinese restaurant re-opened and looks better than it did before the storm.

Little S. is on the Coast. I'll see her today.

I see church vans every where I drive. People are here to help us. I am so happy.

Ruby's landlord is taking his sweet time making repairs on her home. She's afraid to ask him about it because he may increase her rent. She's paying rent and living in a FEMA trailer. She has to buy propane tanks for the FEMA trailer to keep warm.

The neighborhood grocery stocks hydroponic lettuce. LH is fascinated with all the new stuff the grocery carries now after the storm.

I hope to see our plumber today. I hope to see the electrician. I carry this hope from week to week.

If you want to have coffee with the Preacher Group, come over at 10:30. We are meeting here this morning.

What a cool idea for a school to do. I would imagine with spring break this month, you're about to be inundated with service project groups!

That is neat.

One of my fellow lay ministry students took a week off from work last month to help with Gulf relief efforts...quite an experience for him.

BTW -- how's that Andrei Codrescu book spotlighted in your sidebar? I love his writing; I never hear him on NPR anymore and miss his commentaries.
