Where does water come from?

We went on an "adventure" to the park today. It is GORGEOUS weather, blue sky, warm (over 80 degrees today!) and I wanted to PLAY. We had fun. The particular park we went to had some run off water flowing through it in a little ditch.

I said, "Gabe - do you know where that water comes from?"

He looked at me with this funny look on his face and said, "Uh yeah - it comes from Jesus and Heavenly Father!"

I took a second because what I was planning on doing was talking to him about the fact that the snow melts in the spring time and then the water comes out of the mountains. But then I realized that his idea was correct. Everything we have comes from our Heavenly Father - everything. When we loose sight of that fact is when we struggle.

As usual - the faith and innocence of a child....
