A Long Time Without Water

When we left for camp, we failed to sufficiently plan for watering our citrus trees.  The temperatures hit the 90s and there wasn't enough rain.  I had a nightmare that our trees melted.  If my uncle didn't stop by and rescue our trees, they wouldn't have survived.

Going too long without water can be deadly.

It can kill a tree.  It can kill a person.  What can it do to a soul?

I've seen people who've gone a long time without water.  Dried up, shriveled, so far gone they aren't looking for water anymore. 

No, they, we ... we are soul-thirsty.  We come alive if we receive a certain kind of water.

What's your water?
