This powerful story resonated within my heart.
"And in a moment the river He is and the river He called me to beómerged."
Oh, what a picture this paints in my mind!

Thank you for the blessing. You lifted me up to a higher place!

Wow. Just awesome!
This is powerful. It lifted my spirit from first word to last.

It's so hard to comment on your pieces. Anything I say is inadequate. Mercy! Have you been there or what! Now I want to go too! I think I have found a consistent word to your pieces though. It is woo! ;) Only you could make a word like woo, work!!! Excellent. Absolutely exhillerating!

I'm with Sue - woo!! ;)You write with such beautiful, artistic brushstrokes. This is just lovely!
Beautiful, poetic writing! The rhythmn and flow is beautiful and captures how therapeutic and soothing water can be, yet ultimately you've captured that our Lord's presence provides this in an even more perfect way. Thanks for sharing.

The tranquility of your writing flows effortlessly. It's like poetry within a story. It's articulated in such a poetic language which I consider a true gift. Thanks for sharing your uniqueness once again. :) Jo
WOW! That's about all I can say! This is sooooo powerful!

As I read, I kept thinking: livingwaterlivingwaterlivingwater.

My favorite line:
"What had happened to my inadequacies, my dryness, my pain? I didnít know. I didnít remember. It didnít matter. Waters were whispering sighs of promised love."

Beautiful imagery. Beautiful message. Beautiful, period. :-)
