Water is a Blessing

Last night's rain added 197 gallons to our collection tank. That's a good blessing. It also soaked the garden beds deep and the plants will draw on that for a week. The pond didn't fill but it did collect a pretty wide area of water about 4" deep. That's a good start. I'm happy to have any water in there at all. Winter is when we get the most amount of rainfall and I didn't have capture systems in place at that time so we'll just have to endure until then.

It amuses me sometimes when people mention that they would not want to be dependent upon rain for their water. Where do they think their water comes from? They are just as dependent upon God's providence of rain as I am only they've got layers of middlemen between them providing the infrastructure and adding toxic chemicals to it.
