The blue waters,
The green trees,
The blue skies,
The light breeze,
The crisp air,
The birds sing,
The puffed clouds;

Sunlight trickles through stained glass windows.
She kneels, a little apart from her fellows
who also seek salvation in water.
Her gray hair slips from her circumspect braid,
and her Sunday-best thrift-store garb
stands out because it doesn't.
Shaking fingers tap the rail
Nervous feet twitch as she waits.
The water flows down the line of supplicants
till it reaches her, and instantly,she is transformed,
beautiful from scraggly braid to thrift-store shoes.
Can mere water cause this transformation?
Is this a message for me---
Another arrow into the heart of my agnosticism?
I don't know, but for now,
there is sunlight trickling through stained glass windows.

It ripples and waves.
Its soothing to the touch and it runs over your body like an invisible blanket.
When life is too much to take I run to the water.
I've thought about lost loved ones over the view of the ocean.
As the waves ran over my toes and pulled back it was as if God was telling me I'm here.
I see your pain. I see your passion. In time I will wash them away.
When it rains, it stirs something inside of my heart. I know that as this storm shall pass, so will the trials of life.
The pain will be washed away. All will grow new again.
Pain is water.
Joy is water.
Life it water.
Water is beauty.

Jesus Gives Living Water!
Perhaps your feel as if you life has “run dry.”
Nothing that you’ve tried has satisfied…
Perhaps you feel as if any love has “dried up.”
You may feel like you want to give up?
God’s words tell us some words we can live by.
Jesus gives living water, that’ll never run dry!
He gives living water that nourishes the soul.
And offers completeness to make us whole!
His water is eternal and brings hope within!
It feeds the soul of man, and will never end!
Won’t you come and drink of this water so pure?
A new life in Christ, can be yours… For sure!
His pure water can quench the thirst of man.
There’s nothing too hard for Jesus to understand!
He loves us so much and is alive this hour!
Won’t you drink from his life changing power?
Hallelujah to Christ! The soon and coming king!
A complete love and peace is what he brings!
Thank you Jesus! For your mercy and love!
Please quench our hearts, from heaven above!
The water from Jesus gives life everlasting!
He offers it to everyone! Just for the asking!

With each stone,
A certain size,
A distinct color,
Water flows gracefully
Over each backbone of the brook.
Along the brook,
The water is pristine,
Yet calm and quiet,
Rolling over stones
And pebbles, the water streams into
A natural spring.
The spring dwells
Offering life after passing.

Do not disturb the water
The man once said to me
for those who've tried are no more
They spoke of love and life once lived
A place called home, where all was his
It all burnt away, he said with a tear
and all i'm left with is this empty fear
As you see my friend we've much in common
But theres once major difference
you're not in a coffin
So feel free to take a swim
Test the waters he said with a grin
for I see you know which way to go
Dont make me push you in

Have my peccant daydreams seep away
Purged from my mind devoid all delay
Evaporate those thoughts like the mist
Wring as a sponge, oh LORD, with a twist
Have me absorb ideas you adore
Blessed visions soak deep to the core
Living water so pure for my soul
Please, fill me up, each pore, every hole
My thoughts are wrong, so done be your will
Your providence is far greater still
So, God, exchange, my sin with your grace
Each transgression, remove every trace
Though my frail mind compels me to turn
With drowning pain, my life, you did earn.

The process to make Holy Water is no big secret.
You just plain and simply boil the Hell out of it.

Rescuer of my lost soul
Deliverer of my salvation
Listens when I call
Heals my broken heart and makes me whole
Comforts the weary
Mends the broken
He walked on water
Imagine what He can do
When I'm sad and lonely
When my heart longs for home
It's Him I look to
Then I'm strong
The Prince of Peace
Feeds the birds that do not sow
The blind see and the Lame walk
If His eyes are on a sparrow
I am entitled to blessings and grace
For He -
My Lord Jesus,
walked on water
Imagine what He is able to do for you and me

Hard may be the paths that are given to us
Harder still they may be, when we choose not their way
Yet, to abide to them we shall, always without any fuss
For we are after all lost, blind and we need to find our way!
This way that we do seek, is it not known as the end
The end word known as death, the end of life and love
If death be the end, then pray we do have faith on a ready stand
Of course, life, at the scent of water does evolve!
Holy water, sprouting from the root of mystery
Pray do come and lead us all
Take us there where all is holy
Where always we hear songs of the choral!
Life does not end with death, life gets renewed
In this world, or another, by the Holy One, it is always brewed!

I do not know?
Come unto this place
Surround us with your grace
Let your mercy wash over us
Like the majesty of a waterfall
May you baptise the people
With every drop you spill
Come unto this place
