Broken Cisterns

Slip-and-slideJeremiah 2:13 –

“My people have committed two sins:

They have forsaken me, the spring of living water,

And they have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.”


My mind has been drawn to this verse a lot over the last couple of months as we found out right before the Dakota team came that our cistern had a leak in it and we had run out of water in our house cistern.  Thankfully, we had a back-up tank nearby and the rains came soon after, so we have never officially run out of water.

Anyway, just today, we emptied out the cistern (hence the pics of the swimming pool and slip and slide :)), cleaned it out and have been trying to locate the crack.  Throughout this next week we will do what we can to fix it and then reconnect the drainpipes, hoping that there will still be more rain!!
