we are so identified with what we dothat some would say our work defines usfor some work is a drudgery that demeans destroys deniesand for others work is a gift as we follow a long line of people who used their hands hearts strength minds souls to fulfill a dream to build structures to think incredible thoughts to hear the calling of the divine to travel where one has never been to persuade others what needs to be done to bring healing to a multitude of people to do what seems utterly impossible to struggle with what it all means to be with another to bethere is still much to doand much to do for the Lord our God

8All the gifted artisans among them who worked on the tabernacle made ten curtains woven of fine linen, and of blue, purple, and scarlet thread; with artistic designs of cherubim. 9The length of each curtain was twenty-eight cubits [42 feet], and the width of each curtain four cubits [6 feet]; the curtains were all the same size. 10He coupled five curtains to one another, and the other five curtains he coupled to one another. 11He made loops of blue yarn on the edge of the curtain on the selvedge; likewise he did on the outer edge of the second set. 12Fifty loops he made on one curtain, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain on the end of the second set; the loops held one curtain to another. 24He made fifty clasps of gold, and coupled the curtains to one another with the clasps, that it might be one tabernacle. 14He made eleven curtains of goats' hair for the tent over the tabernacle. 15The length of each curtain was thirty cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits. 16He coupled five curtains by themselves and six curtains by themselves. 17And he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that is outermost in one set, and fifty loops on the edge of the curtain of the second set. 18He also made fifty bronze clasps to couple the tent together, that it might be one. 19Then he made a covering for the tent of ram skins dyed red, and a covering of badger skins above that. 20For the tabernacle he made boards of acacia wood, standing upright. 22Each board had two tenons for binding one to another and 24forty sockets of silver to go under the twenty boards. 31He made bars of acacia wood, 34their rings of gold to be holders for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold. 1Then Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood. 2He overlaid it with pure gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold all around it. 3He cast for it four rings of gold to be set in its four corners: two rings on one side, and two rings on the other side of it. 4He made poles of acacia wood, and overlaid them with gold. 5He put the poles into the rings at the sides of the ark, to bear the ark. 6He also made the mercy seat of pure gold. 7He made two cherubim of beaten gold; he made them of one piece at the two ends of the mercy seat. 9The cherubim spread out their wings above, and covered the mercy seat with their wings. They faced one another; the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
