morning walk

the morning rose clear
bright and fresh
perfect time to take a walk
around the bend
soaking in images
of the land I am leaving behind
turning back toward home
the house nestled in the trees
that soon will be home to others 
while we are away
the Shasta daisies
reaching to the sun
wild, invasive beauties
tended by the Master gardener
our water source
man's design to draw
what the Creator provided
may our hearts ever be open
to receive His promised
Living Water
if that is all we have
it is much more
than we will ever need

 On the final and climactic day of the Feast, 
Jesus took his stand. 
He cried out, “If anyone thirsts, 
let him come to me and drink. 
Rivers of living water will brim 
and spill out of the depths 
of anyone who believes in me this way, 
just as the Scripture says.

God has been reminding me of Living Water and calling it to my heart for weeks now -- your post is a lovely confirmation. God bless you and your writing,
Laurie
