Afterwords: A Glass of Water

A life lived with a glass that has water is always a life that is full, whether the glass is full of water or the glass is half filled, there is still fresh water to drink.

How many do not have water to quench their thirst?

How many are dehydrated?

I realize and recognize that I am so fortunate for so many things that will forever remain unsaid, unspoken, unwritten; but the heart knows what they are, and God knows the human heart.

A drop of water is not just a drop of water; it is life giving and life sustaining liquid.

We all thirst; we thirst for all our dryness to be refreshed, for all our droughts to be replenished, for all our desiccations to be restored.
