No, this is not an extremely large vanilla/caramel creamsicle. It's our water filter. Whenever I clean our water filters, I am super thankful for every bit of microbe-laden slime I clean off of them, because that's one less microbe that I have to worry about in our drinking water.
All around us, there are people liviing without running water, without clean water, and without a way to make it clean.
Thank you God for clean drinking water, and running water. Never take it for granted. It's nice stuff to have.
