Cold Filtered Water 

6 I will stand there before you by the rock at Horeb. Strike the rock, and water will come out of it for the people to drink.” So, Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel. Exodus 17:6 (NIV).

I am outside cutting grass and taking care of the flowers around our house. The summer temperatures are consistent with the Iowa weather of hot and humid conditions. As I become thirsty, the only thing I can think about is getting a drink of water. It’s not just a glass of water, but I feel the need to quench my thirst with a glass filled with cold filtered or bottled water – heavy on the ice. The minute I take the first sip, a pleasant relief comes rushing through my body. I tell myself I must re-hydrate myself to stay focused on getting my outdoor chores completed. 
I can’t remember how many times this same situation has occurred in my life, but the feeling is the same. Some people would call this “my go-to approach” to quenching the significant thirst people experience on a warm sunny day. I want to clarify that plain, old, cold refreshing water is the ticket. Sure, people can drink lemonade or their favorite sports drink to accomplish a similar goal. Even those drinks need water to make a refreshing taste come alive. But for me, a glass of water with ice is a step above any natural preservatives or additives.
