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...

Slow Saturday Morning - Okay, it's really Thursday

I am sitting here staring at the blank screen, thinking I should be able to come up with something to write today!  However, words fail me.  It just dawned on me that we forgot to get up and go help with Bountiful Baskets...Then it dawned on me it's Thursday, and we don't help with Bountiful Baskets till Saturday...I think I'm in limbo land!

I have all these fantastic ideas, but they always happen when I am in the shower, or driving down the road, and I really don't have any clue how to remember them long enough to get them on paper!

I know I made a committment to blog daily, but so far it kind of feels like I am cheating.  Copying song lyrics or posting a video of songs that we sang on Sunday seems like the easy way out!

Today I am going to attempt a little crafting.  Maybe I can get some mileage out of showing you what I build!  Have a great day everyone, and God Bless!
