Today is the state primary election in Tennessee. Several state and local races will be on the ballot including a race for one of the US Senate seats and a bunch of school board races in the county in which I live. Voting is a responsibility and I hope everyone takes it seriously when they can vote no matter where they live. Democracy is a good thing.
I believe in supporting someone or something is the best way of making them better. When we say something “sucks” do we ask ourselves what can be done to help make it better. No one is perfect and everyone is sharing the ride known as life. Build up, don’t tear down.
Water is life. It is one of the first things made in creation. So much of our livelihoods are dependent on the stuff. For a believer its cleansing for the soul. H20 is a molecule and when there is a lot of it there can be hydration for the body, recreation for the spirit, power for our lives. It can be a way we receive nourishment and care.
When water becomes violent such as a storm or a hurricane then it becomes devastating. Water seems to always win. You can build things to retain it but still it wins. But on the riverbanks and at the lake it can be a place for people to gather to connect with one another.
Today, lets think about water in all the ways it is a significant part of our existence. Don’t forget to drink what you need and not waste any. Water is very much alive.
