Water: Cool and Fresh

Fichtner-MainwaringSprayPark1Oh what a relief it is!  The cooler weather and the nice rain has been a welcome relief from the scorching temperatures.

It’s been so hot and dry, my garden has been withering, and I’ve had water on my mind.  How often and how much should I water?

While I was trying to find the answers to my questions, I found that the average household uses about 408 gallons each day and about 148,920 gallons a year.

So how is this water being used?  Most of it goes down the drain through:

  • The toilet……………….26.7 %
  • The Clothes Washer…21.7 %
  • Showers & Baths…….16.9 %
  • Leaks……………………13.7 %
  • Kitchen use ……………10.7 %
  • Cleaning………………….5 %
  • Dishwasher ……………..1 %
  • Other ……………………..4.3 %

As I was thinking of this, I remembered a conversation that Jesus had with a woman at a well.  She had come in the heat of the day to draw water from the public well, and Jesus said to her: “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

The water bill has already been paid, so come to Jesus and drink deeply.
