A Precious Thing Called Water BY VICKIE AUFFORTH, BOWBELLS The following is a column that was printed last fall in the Burke County Tribune. It is reprinted here with permission from the author. As the season for giving thanks is once again approaching, I sit here contemplating the things for which I am thankful. There are so many. Some great, some sma ll, some ot her s may think ridiculous. And there are those things that are necessar y for the sustaining of all life, one of which is water. It i s t h roug h wate r t hat I beca me a ch i ld of God , baptized into His family and given the promise of everlasting life. Thankful for this precious water helping to make me part of His flock. T ha n k f u l for water, wh ic h nourishes my body, sustaining my life. For water with which I wash my clothing, clean my floors and cook my food. It is in this precious thing called water that we are able to boil potatoes, eggs and pasta, the substance of our diets. Again, I give thanks for its abundance in my life. >>54 © Photographer: Kathy Wynn | Agency: First Quarter 2008 • 53
