Gray clouds press in on my window. Their soggy fingerprints blur the Olympic Mountains which, for now, are hiding across the murky Puget Sound. I’m enveloped in grayness. It prompts a question:
What lacks taste, color and shape but is the most prevalent molecule in existence?
If you answered, “Water,” good on you. The Carpenter from Nazareth transformed water into fine wine.

The water I give them will become in them a spring which will provide them with life-giving water and give them eternal life.”
Jesus’ friend, John, was given a larger-than-Imax vision of the New Heaven and the New Earth in which he sees the Lord say, “To anyone who is thirsty I will give the right to drink from the spring of the water of life without paying for it.. … I will be their God, and they will be My children.”
