water: spun

You get it. Water is good. Water cleans things. Water refreshes us. Hydrates us. Water makes life possible. Water is good. You get it.

You get it. Water is good. Water is for baptism. Water is used by the Holy Spirit to clean our spirits. Water from Christ will banish our thirst. Water is good. You get it.

But water can be easily ruined. It is hard (impossible) to clean water mixed with toxic chemicals. Some water used for cleaning causes more harm than good.

Water can be scarce. Many people travel long distances to bring a single jug of water to their home, to their families. Forests burn because the branches of their trees thirst for water.

Water is precious.

Humanity is entrusted to care for its great gift.

Living Water is precious.

Christians are entrusted to share its great gift.

Alaina,

Thanks for taking the time to say hello to me today at the NYG. I'm sure there's a less awkward way to say, 'Hi, you don't know me, but I read your blog and enjoy it,' but I don't know what it is, it seems. :( (Though one suspects it involves getting your name right...sorry about that.) In any case, I'll try to interact a little more and lurk a little less. ;)

Please keep writing, teaching, leading and dreaming. It's good to know that there are others (though we're few) that hunger for something ancient and meaningful and deep and hope-filled and yet somehow timeless and real and True.

God's richest blessings on your ministry.
