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...

Procrastination

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this to you, but I am a procrastinator of the first degree.  If it needs to be done, even if it's something I want to do, I am likely to put it off until it just can't be put off anymore!  Unfortunately, sometimes when you procrastinate you miss deadlines, entry dates, or other opportunities.

I've had ample ideas for blog posts lately.  I have tons of pictures of recipes that we've reviewed or created, including some awesome s'mores cupcakes that we came up with one day.  I've even written some of them, and have the accompanying step by step photos in true PW style (have to give credit where credit is due)!

Unfortunately, my laptop...yes, another one.  Yes, the brand new one, was hit by a mega virus last week.  It dropped it down to the ground.  It's sitting at our favorite computer repair store now, but in the meantime I've been thinking about how I should have gotten all those photos posted to facebook and shutterfly, and written those blogs instead of putting them off, because all of the files I had may not survive.

It's really sad to me that people feel the need to destroy the computers and information of others, just because they can.  I am sure I'm not the only one who feels this way!  I did however learn a great lesson about procrastination and why it's a bad thing!
