Day Eighteen ~ Clean Water

My father loved to sing.  Unfortunately, he was the only one who loved to hear his singing!  None-the-less, he had a cluster of favorite songs that were likely to show up at any time.  One of his long time favorites came from the songbook of the Sons Of The Pioneers.  They recorded it during the days when a fellow named Roy Rogers was a part of the group.  I promise, their harmony was well beyond my dad's range but well within his desire.

The song is called Cool Clear Water.  You can check out the original version at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDtCa8ZgAk4

"All day I face the barren waste without the taste of water...cool clear water!"  That was dad's favorite line, he sang it over and over.  Many times, we all sang along just for fun! 

So let me ask you, have you ever been thirsty?  I mean really thirsty!  Thirsty enough that you would love the taste of cool clear water?  Or maybe even thirsty enough that you would drink water that was not so cool and clear.  Maybe you would even drink water that you knew would make you sick.  Have you ever been that thirsty?

Today, Chris Seay talks about a group of folks in Nigeria who wanted and needed nothing less than a drink that would not make them sick.  Literally a cup of cool water that could be provided in the name of the Lord.  Take a few minutes today to check out www.water.cc to see how you could be a part of making a huge difference in the lives of people around the world.  Check it out,  you can even sing as you make the click!

Peace.

Yes! I have. The water was a dark green and a murky color. I was filling my canteen when the body of a dead VC floated by. I emptied my canteen. Waited for the body to pass and refilled it…Yes, I have drank of that water and wish for no one to ever have to drink of it again. Frank

Thank you! Yes, he has! The greatest healer is love and He showed us that when he died for us on the cross! Frank
