​Since water is essential for us to remain alive physically, I present LIVING WATER, given to me to give to you. LIVING WATER, however, is the extra "UMPH" I give to those in need of a little hope, a little strength. My posts may come in a variety of different forms; poems, short stories, maybe even scattered thoughts. It's purpose is to uplift, inspire, and empower. When you are on your last drop of water in the spiritual or natural sense, LIVING WATER is here to replenish,

~ "Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water..." John 7:38
