The boy waits, sometimes face upturned, sometimes grinning at me impishly as I watch with my camera to catch the outpouring. He has no doubt that the bounty exists, but still he fidgets a bit. The sun begins to take the water from his skin and he feels the heat. He will get what he's wanting, won't he? I encourage him, "Wait for it, buddy, it'll come." And the bucket fills slowly above him. Then all at once without warning it comes pouring down upon him--more water than he can ask or imagine streaming all around him. And when it's done, that grin...oh, that grin! It was definitely worth the wait.
 "...It will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom."
Luke 6:38
