This waterfall, in a little park next door to my apartment reminds me of what a blessing it is to have water. Besides the aesthetic reasons, water is something we need to live. We take it for granted in countries where it is plentiful. Perhaps we need to step back and think of what a great gift God has given us. We need to enjoy His gift but not waste it.
Just in one day we have water for many things:
***to enjoy my cup of cocoa, coffee or tea
***to have clean dishes to eat out of
***to wash my clothes
***to water my plants
***to clean my floors
***to cool my drinks with ice cubes
***to keep my cold food cold during transport to a potluck
***to use in recipes
***to water the grass to make it green
***to water my garden or flower bed
***to wsh the car
***to enjoy a glass of cold water on a hot day
***to boil my potatoes or macaroni or eggs
***to swim in or run through the hose
There's probably more ways to use water but these were all I could think of off the top of my head. Water is a blessing we often take for granted. I've been blessed with it all my life and can't begin to imagine what it is like in countries that have a drought. Even tho I hate when it rains because it isn't comfortable walking where I need to go in the rain, I can thank God for the rain He gives us to keep our reservoirs full. So, forgive me, Lord when I complain about yet another rainy day when I am blinded to the blessing.

I caught this little hare running around our downtown park, hiding in the bushes. It had two companions but they were too fast for me to catch them all!
