I was watching tv and the Brita Water filter commercial caught my attention. I watched as scenes of water flashed and I remarked to SR about how amazing it is, that to us water is so beautiful. All of God’s creations are awesome, but I think water is one of the most lovely. The way the tide flows back and forth, and the undulating waves of light and dark.

 The fizz of a cascade, and the flow of the stream as it tumbles to the edge.

The deep blue of island waters, and the amazing amount of marine life in tide pools.

The lazy flow of a small river, winding its way through the rise and fall of banks and trees.  The soothing sound of rain falling and the reflection of clouds in a small pond.

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Gen. 1:2

…but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground. Gen. 2:6

A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. Gen. 2:10

And I remembered how God chose to describe the Holy Spirit as “Living Water”…

Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him. John 7:38
Water is beautiful because water is life.

I love water. I wish I was on a beach right now. But being snowed in is nice too. :)

I disagree with LeLe...being snowed in is not nice...all I keep thinking is PLEASE don't go out power!
I do agree on the others though.
Great post!
My internets back!! YAY!
Living in the boonies is hard on a girl without the internet.

I love the water which is possibly why the Hawk and I go to Florida once a year.

Lisa, I used to live in the Gum Springs area and was lucky to have dial up. No way we could have dsl or satellite or anything else. So, I understand how you feel.
