  • Dog Days of Summer

    The summer heat has reminded me of an important part of the word of God. The hot summer days, the need for rain and the seeming never ending thirst causes us to want one thing…..to be refreshed.
    The Gospel of John, chapter 4, the story of the woman at the well is recorded. In this story a lady is coming to get water at the well for her and her family. It was the hottest part of the day and she was met by Jesus. Jesus intentionally went to her to minister to her and show her the only thing that would quench her thirst.
