Yesterday we got a note on our door from the water company telling us that we needed to be prepared to have our water turned off. But it might be today, or it might be Monday. And we can't tell you what time we'll turn it off... And we don't know how long it may be off (if we turn it off). So, draw yourself some extra water (before 9 am!- that's important, of course), turn off your water heater, if you leave the house, be sure all your faucets are off, and ... have a nice day. If you have any questions, feel free to contact yada yada yada.

Needless to say, our water was not turned off, and we did everything they told us to (well, we left the water heater on) and we'll probably do this all again on Monday. And they may not even turn it off then!

Wouldn't it be nice if we didn't have to rely on "them" for all of our stuff? Wouldn't it be nice to just grow our own food, bake our own bread, make our own clothes, teach our own schoolchildren, gather our own eggs, milk our own cows, power and heat our own houses, have water from our own well, and not have to be so dependent?

Everyone is dependent on something, even the most "liberated", independent-minded free spirits out there. The difference is- on what are you dependent? You can be dependent on society, government-- other people, our you can be dependent on the all-sufficient God of the universe. But the best part is: you can (and should) depend on God even if you do still have to run to the grocery store and deal with fickle water companies.

"Great is Thy faithfulness." ~Lamentations 3:23
