We are in a drought!  It is HOT!  But God is in control! Last night, I was ironing by my widow in my living room and noticed the amazing quantities and varieties of birds fluttering around.  I then realized that we had, inadvertently, created a sort of oasis from the heat and dry ground around our house.  We have a sprinkler on the roof that is helping to keep the house cool, and it drips off the house and causes puddles, small and short lasting, but puddles none-the-less. The birds were bathing, cooling off and drinking in the water with the hundreds of wasps we also have flitting around as well.  We even had hummingbirds perched on a branch drinking in the water.  That, was fun to watch! Later in the evening, I went out to turn off the water in the yard and saw 2 different bugs that I had NEVER seen in my life.  Again...drawn to the yard for water and the coolness of the grass, I suppose.

As I was watching and thinking about the water, I was reminded that Jesus is the Living Water!  He gives unceasing water to those who thirst for righteousness.  He is the Life Giver...in HIM there is no drought!  I am thankful for the simple joy of watching His creation dance outside my window!  They point me to His love and Provisions...

"Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?" (Luke 12:27-28)

We don't always know how or where God's will meet our needs, but we can be assured that he will meet them...
