Living by the water in my early years had a “magical” quality. I have had too little contact with open water in recent decades and get home sick. One of my therapies is to swim three days a week. It helps stave off the longing for the deep.
From time to time I find myself flipping through the ads, scanning for riverfront property, a place on a river to call home. It’s beyond my financial reach and unrealistic but the magnetism keeps pulling. What if …how wonderful it would be… to dwell by the water again!
Birds sense an intuitive urge to find their way home. My instinctual ache, my intuitive pining, is to return home and find my place by the river! Do you feel it; the impulse, the longing, to return to Eden and the river that sprang up there?
Search the web for “River of Life” and you will find millions of references. “River of Life” has been published on the billboards of thousands of congregations. It is the theme of songs and sermons. Followers of Jesus refer to it, but it seems the truths of this River are only vaguely known.
I am finishing my book on The River of Life. My provisional title is “Riverfront Property: Life at the Waterside.” I will be sharing the book along with my seminar.
I like to interview people, so I am asking you,
“What can you tell me about the river of life?”
I’m always learning from others! I’d love to have you write me a note and share your insight and experience!
