Freshwater Academy

Fresh Water Academy was founded in 2010. It is home to four lovely young ladies of learning and their dedicated teachers. Located in the wilds of Wyoming, the name Fresh Water Academy was chosen as a Western analogy to Christ. Just as He is the Living Water, and we must have Him to have eternal life, any desert dweller knows the importance of fresh water to life, both for self, and the nourishment of crops or livestock. By taking nourishment in God and His word, we strengthen our own relationship with Him, our faith, and the quality and abundance of our fruitfulness.

Our keystone verse is from Jeremiah, Chapter 17, Verse 8: "For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

The fruit that we speak of is mentioned in Galatians 5:22
"22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

And the heat could be anything we experience that might test our faith in God; trials and tribulations, relationships, anything that focuses our love and attention anywhere but on Him...

Day of Rest

Yes, I took yesterday off!  We had a lovely day of mostly relaxing in the morning!  I got stuck when I went to pick up a friend for church, but we got out, practiced, and had a nice worship service.  We came home and emptied out the fridge, eating leftovers and cleaning it out!  

The plan today was to work at the Haven, moving and storing stuff, cleaning up, building shelves, and other assorted projects, but there was an emergency this morning.  My poor Sister in Law has no water because a pipe broke this morning!  The guys have gone down to work on it and we haven't heard anything for awhile.

Today, I am mailing eleven more letters to various newspapers in our region, hoping to get the news out about our Post Office!  

I hope Monday sees your week off to a great start!
