So on to the reason why it is titled "Bathing in a Rain Barrel". Sometime after non yesterday, we started loosing our city water pressure. Yes, we had another water main break! I got my shower before it went out, :-)! But.....I can't say the rest of the family did! It wouldn't have been so bad but my wife had somewhere to be and my son had to work today. I looked at my wife and said, "I have 110 gallons of rain water" and to my surprise she gave me a large pan and said, "go fill it up".
See, her dad was a Boy Scout Master and she had been drug on many camping trips and had bathed in many creeks. After she got done with her bath she said, "everyone should have a rain barrel for emergencies". So here is another great reason to have rain barrels, they come in handy during emergencies and make you more sustainable! If you wanted to use the water for drinking water, you could also use a good water filtration system to filter the water. To read my post on how to make a rain barrel, Click Here!
This is just another way that our Lord will provide for us in time of need! God tells us not to worry, that He will provide those things which we need, not want, just as He does for the birds of the air. As you go through this day look at what all our Lord has provided for you and thank Him! I hope you all have a blessed and wonderful weekend!
