Definitely cute - although I got more of a "water" theme than a "river" theme! Still, the images of gagging and wedgies and marine life in the hair are fantastic!! Good allusions to the life of the spirit and living water, too. :-)

Oh why, oh why can't more inspirational pieces be like this! You pulled me into the (hilarious) story, then whallopped me with an awesome lesson--then back and forth seamlessly between the two. Awesome!

OK you - I was laughing so hard I almost peed in my pants!!! (LOL is that OK to say in a Christian forum?) You do such a SENSATIONAL job of weaving humor and wisdom from His word together into a seamless and hysterically funny tapestry! You really have a gift!

This was sooooo funny---I bet you are a hoot to hang out with.It drew me in and made me want to keep reading which is every writer's goal. I also liked the comparison of the spiritual with the physical----so very well done> I give you a double A plus

By the time I got to your painful wedgie I was hooked with a happy smile on my face. A pleasure and a treat. God bless. xx

This is a hoot, a delight, and a wonderful lesson woven all into one. I agree with others. WOW! I was thrown into the water of life yesterday and got a mouth full of something not to wonderful. This helped me. Thanks!!!

Loved it. Reminded me of the one (and only one) time I tried to water ski :o).

Wedgies, eh? That sounds like something I might write about someday (thanks for the idea). LOL humor, as always, Jo. You definitely have an amazing and quirky way of looking at things (I love it!). I love your ability to entertain and deliver a powerful message simultaneously. Loved it!

What can I say that hasn't been said? Excellent, as always. I love your humour, the stuff you think to notice (like what is in the water?!), and the lesson is really well brought home. Great.
