Whenever I leave the house, I hear the same sentence: “You have your hands full.” And (depending on the day) you may hear me say, “Yes. full of good things.”

Full of God. Motherhood. Life. Full of children and household needs, full of homeschooling and school pick ups. Full of laundry and neighborhood meetings and book clubs and ESL classes.

Full of words for little people, grown people, and all the people in between, but mostly for Mommas like myself. Those that carry the littles, remember the Cheerios and forget their appointments. Those that long to love these full days.

Friend, I know your life is full too. And the road is long and dry, isn’t it? That’s when God’s Word is water for the soul. The Word in season lifts our faces and slips a hand in ours.

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty…” (John 4:13-15).

That’s the water we’re after, isn’t it? Are you thirsty? For the dry places of life? Day after day, water for the soul and hope for the road. If you long for that water welling up to eternal life, I write for you. Whether you know Jesus or you are just curious about Him, I write to make you thirsty. To show you a bit of Himself and how He’s changed my life in so many incredible ways.

So that you will be like that woman who opened her soul wide and just asked Him for water. I write to remind you to look up, drink deep and stead on. Join me, because the days are long and the journey short. And we’ll soon be Home.
