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 don't know why, but I can never get those darn buttons to work right!  Today we're linking up to Lessons from Ivy:  Encouragement for the Present, and boy is she encouraging!  The scripture she shared on Monday totally hit the right spot in my heart when I read it this morning.  Thanks for dropping by!

For my part of the link-up we're going back in time, for something encouraging and yummy, some super duper cupcakes!

  1. Well the linky tool over there doesn't seem to like me, but I hate to post the link here, because it negates the whole point of a link up :), so we'll wait awhile and see!
