Water...it is such a necessity for all of us!

Well, we hope to have water back soon!!

Being without water when you live in a desert with 7 kids is no fun! Tensions run high, you can't cook or clean, and...well you get the idea.

It all started yesterday morning when we woke up to dry faucets. What could have been as simple as triggering the pressure switch...or hitting the reset on the control panel...didn't work. Finally, the only solution left was to replace the submersible pump. Not impossible...but when work calls and one can't be home to fix it...then the trouble begins. Not to mention that we live in a remote area and actually getting a replacement pump would have to wait till possibly Monday!

Fortunately, the local hardware store had not only one..but two well pumps sitting on the shelf...so we should be back in business by late afternoon.

UPDATE: The pump wasn't the problem either. The wiring down to the pump had a bad burned spot in it...so after repairing that entire situation...we are back up and running..water! Yay!

Water...you take it for granted...till you don't have it!

Since it is Sunday, I will share this. JOHN 4:3-15 and JOHN 4:27-38

The Parable of the Good Samaritan where Jesus and the good Samaritan woman meet at the well. Jesus asks her for water and she is shocked at His request since Jews do not have dealings with Samaritans. He then tells her that if she knew who He was, she would be asking Him for water instead. He can supply living water. Water that will take away your thirst altogether. Water that will last forever and give eternal life.

Jesus is my Savior and the living water that is offered is free to all. One must simply believe in Jesus. JOHN 3:16 reads...For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Do you believe in the One who came to save us?
