Summer of Simplicity: A Cup of Cold Water

 On Friday night, while Independence Day was in full swing, I made my way to our church, my car loaded down with bottled water and bagged ice. Missionary Baptist Church is perfectly situated on the peak of a hill, near the municipal golf course where the fireworks are set off. Several other volunteers were there, and we took turns greeting guests and offering them a cold beverage along with information about our church and its ministries.

For years, citizens of our small town find empty lots near the fireworks display and park to view the show. As my pastor approached one car, the driver said, "Oh, are we not supposed to park here?" Chris chuckled, and assured them they were welcome to stay and offered them bottled water.

It's a simple thing, really. Everyone is free to come and enjoy the water.

When Jesus met the woman at the well, He spoke of thirsting for spiritual water and she asked Him for a drink of that "living water."

It's a simple thing, really. Everyone is free to come and enjoy the living water.

Are you thirsty yet?

Female in Motion Health Update: The Hubster's brother passed away last weekend, after a brief battle with cancer. Our home has been swirling with activity ever since. We appreciate prayers for the family. In other news, I have a new resume and am applying for loads of jobs.
