#bethelight – Day 87

This morning I was drinking a glass of water and I started thinking about how lucky we are to have clean water – even filtered water – right in the comfort of our homes.  I thought about when I was a kid and water came to my house in a truck and my parents would have it poured into a boat that acted like a reservoir.  I thought of the ditch that would fill our cistern.  I though of the times when the water didn’t run and we would need to go to school to shower and drinking water was in buckets.  I was so grateful for water in my house!

I decided to look up an organization that helped people get water.  I found Mercy Corps.  Click here to check out Mercy Corps for yourself.  I found that I could “buy” clean water for someone for a reasonable price.  I could even make it a gift and send someone a card explaining that I made a donation in their name.  But I think the real gift is the water for a family in need somewhere in the world.


There are other gifts you can choose from… even a goat!

Anyway… this morning as an act of kindness… I donated to help a family have clean water somewhere in the world.
