We have a lovely home that God has blessed us with and I'm so thankful! This week I was at the office preparing for a WOW Leadership meeting (Women of Worth) at our church for a wedding shower the women's ministry is hosting this month.

My husband proceeds to call me on my cell phone and tell me he needed me to do him a favor, he was on his way out to the movies with a friend and that we had no water at home. You see, we have a well for our source of water. Our oldest daughter was in the shower soaping up her hair when the water stopped. She came out of the bathroom with bathrobe on and a towel wrapped around her soaped up head wondering why the water had stopped in the middle of her shower. Our youngest daughter was outside washing her car and had it soaped up preparing to rinse it off when the water went off.

After much aggravation I finally found the number for our water guy and reached him to find out he had plans for evening and we would have to wait until the morning for him to come out and find out what had happened!

My girls had to work the next day, so they made plans to find somewhere else they could stay for the night so they could shower and be fresh for work the next morning. So, it was just me and the hubby for the night.

Thank goodness we had plenty of bottled water on hand. I don't know how many times I went to the sink and turn the water on forgetting we had no water. I'm sure that some of you that went through Hurricane Charley can relate to what I'm saying. We went through that storm and were without water immediately.

The next day and a couple of hundred dollars later our well was repaired. The damage hadn't been too bad. Well, I took a shower and flushed (if you know what I mean!). I thanked the Lord for helping us get our water back on! I thanked Him for giving us a well that would never run dry.

My mind went to the story about the woman at the well. Jesus offered her water that she would
never thirst again. She jumped on that and wanted it! Hauling water in the heat of the day probably got old really quick.

Water is something we must have and can't live without. Sometimes we are thirsty and don't even realize it and that can be dangerous! Water is refreshing and fills us for awhile, but we have to constantly replenish our bodies.

Jesus gives us streams of living water all we have to do is drink from His fountain and be refreshed! His water is a precious gift!


  1. Indeed, His water is a precious gift!

    I wanted to follow-up on an email I sent you yesterday concerning Assembly of God Blogs. Often times I hear it went to "spam". If you didn't get an email from me, look for one in your spam from A Hoosier Family.

    Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.


  2. Thank you Sharon.
    I did receive your email, but a newcomer to blogs and will need a little help from from daughter or husband.

    I did hear quite a few comments regards to the blog on water. People have shared their water stories with me.

  3. LaDonna,
    Sorry to bother you again. I wanted to give you a heads up that I'm leaving for vacation on Monday. If there is anyway you can get the code up before then, I'd encourage you to do so. Otherwise it will be August until I can move you to members.

    Here's what you do. If you follow this, it'll take you less than five minutes!

    Go to:

    Scroll down the page until you come to the code

    Click/hold/highlight the code

    Right click/ Copy

    Log in to your Blogger dashboard.
    Click on "Layout".
    Click on the Template tab, then click on "Page Elements".
    Click on "Add a Page Element".
    Add the "HTML/Javascript" element by clicking the "Add to Blog" button under that choice.
    Paste your blogring code into the blank content area. (You can right click/paste)
    Providing a title is optional.
    More than likely your blogring code will have the title of the ring embedded in the code and it will show up after you save and publish. However, if you would like to name the element, type the title in the "Title" box.
    Click "Save Changes".
    Click the "Save" button on your Page Elements page.

    Hope this helps!

  4. Okay Sharon,
    I hope this was done properly. Let me know.

    Thanks for the detailed instructions.



Thank you for your sweet comments! I love hearing from you!
