“Do you know of any parent who would give his hungry child, who asked for food, a plate of rocks instead? Or when asked for a piece of fish, what parent would offer his child a snake instead?

When I found this picture, I began to wonder, where does all that water come from? For centuries, it continues to cascade off the rock and into the water below. It reminded me of the inexhaustible supply my Father has. It never stops! He never runs out of what we need nor does He tire of us asking. I love that about Him.
