“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.”
For almost a year, there was no well. The water for daily use was bucketed up a steep hill from a small running stream below. Carrying five gallon buckets of water up a leaf-covered slippery hill is not an easy task…and still have some water in the buckets when you get to the top.
This was an on-going task several times a day for almost a year. In the rain and in the snow, the water was carried. It was hard work, but there were no complaints. Instead, we thanked God every step of the way. We had food, shelter, clothing and all the water we could carry. What more could one ask for?
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. (I Timothy 6:7-8 KJV)
