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...

I feel lazy today

I just feel lazy!  I'm having a difficult time to sit down and write anything that's actually motivated, though I've already written a few CafeMom books today, go figure.  We were watching a DVR'd Rachel Ray this morning, and I'm excited to make Creamy Paprika Chicken!  Here's the link to the recipe if you're interested :).  I like her eggplant garbage bowl too...I know, sounds crazy, but so practical, at least if you have the counter space!  I guess an old ice cream bucket for compost would net the same result and be a lot more budget friendly :).

Speaking of budget friendly, I shared recipes for lots of homemade things the other day.  We are loving the laundry soap, dish soap, and the shampoo and conditioner :).  I am seriously thinking about making homemade soaps for Christmas next year.  What do you think?

We also went to Home Depot and bought 5 gallon Homer Buckets, in preparation for the case sale at Smith's.  I have 5 gallon buckets full of sugar, flour, one for rice, and we're planning more! :)
