Drippin Beauty

“Everywhere water is a thing of beauty
gleaming in the dewdrop,
singing in the summer rain.”
John Ballantine Gough

Blessing Rain

“Soften my heart,
O God of living waters,
that the shower of Scripture
I am about to read
may enrich the soil of my soul.

Rain down your wisdom
in sacred streams
to carry me like an upturned leaf
through the currents of this gray day.

“In our judgment of human transactions,
the law of optics is reversed;
we see the most indistinctly the objects
which are close around us.”

“I am still determined to be cheerful and happy,
in whatever situation I may be;
for I have also learned from experience that
the greater part of our happiness or misery
depends upon our dispositions,
and not upon our circumstances.”

Martha Washington

Dream BIG…

“If you limit your choices only to
what seems possible or reasonable,
you disconnect yourself from what you truly want,
and all that is left is a compromise.”
Robert Fritz


“To serve the cause of water adequately… We must get to know it in its true being. And how do we do this? Why, by treating it in the very way exemplified by its own behavior; that is, whenever we encounter it, we wash the tablet of our souls clean of all other impressions in order to allow the being of water to make its imprint on us.”
