Just A Summer Reminder

Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes water and nobody knows what that is.
~ D.H. LAWRENCE (1885-1930), Pansies, 1929

This is not my usual post. Just a friendly summer reminder... With the intense heat we had from the past days and I know some areas where you are also had suffered from the summer heat, do not forget to hydrate yourself with WATER. Dehydration is a bad thing to happen in your body. Be careful that you don’t keep drinking too much iced teas, alcoholic drinks or sodas. They are diuretics and will actually do more harm than good.

Water is essential and so it is with the history of mankind. And His…Have a blessed weekend to all of you. Thinking about you all in thoughts and prayers. Thank you for yours.

On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

—John 7:37-38


  1. So wish you could send some of your lovely weather over to us in cloudy cold England :)

  2. I'm drinking water right now in fact! Be blessed.

  3. Thanks for this very needed reminder sis, love you.

  4. I am like a child that needs a reminder to drink water...Thank You!

  5. Twice I've gotten myself into situations where I found myself dehydrated and it was not a circumstance that I ever wish to get caught in again. It literally took me days to recover. i now carry bottled water with me and drink water often in the heat. It is truly dangerous, and the Lord needs us all to reach one more for Him, so drink up. Thanks for the reminder.

  6. We have experienced this first hand with Jenna this summer! Took her to ER and found out it was Dehydration! Amazed at what it does to your body!

    Water ~ soo very necessary!!

  7. We can all benefit from this reminder. Thank you dear.

  8. reading this post...I can't help but think how much you care about people...even to post encouraging us not to forget about drinking water. Rosel...I send you a ton of hugs. Have a great relaxing weekend.

  9. Let Your living water flow!

  10. I am thankful for the water that I drink each day. But I am more so thankful for the springs of living water that I am able to drink from anytime of the day or night!

    Physical and Spiritual water is so essential! Thanks for the reminder, Nurse!

  11. Very good advise. We are under a heat watch right now with temperatures well over 100 degrees.

  12. That is beautiful, thank you my friend. Blessings ~

  13. I love water. Nothing satisfies like it. I love Living Water, too!

  14. I love your blog. You used the same background as me. ChristyMorrisraw.blogspot.com.

    I would love to be a blogging penpal. How did you get the videos on your posts?

  15. Good on you...people need to be reminded of this and often. When dehydrated the body bloodpressure falls rapidy. Overdrinking when not needed is unwise also....but to drink what the body asks for is the best.
    I'm so glad you pointed out about the tea's.
    God Bless you my sister. Hugs

    Blessings for the reminder

    I'm reminded of the newest findings of science where there is force by which all matter comes together and is kept. Science calls it "Dark Matter". There is another force that appears to be trying to tear us apart and they call it "Dark Energy". The name adjective "Dark" is used because they can't shed any light on it in order to understand it. They can't see these forces but they see evidence of them. Isn't this what the Bible means in Colossians 1:17.

    "He existed before all things, and he holds all things together."

    I pray that all will see the evidence of God and look to him.

    Keep up the good work and I'll see you at the southern gate, my sister.

    Shalom Tov,

  21. I love you my long time precious sister and faith-filled friend!!!

    This is an excellent post. I always have a bottle of water in hand but my husband needs to learn a lesson from this posting.

    Again, love you so very much. God bless you always my sweet sister.

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]

Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.

Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.

All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.

When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.

The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.

When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.

[Source: Life Application Bible]:

We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.

“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14

Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].

Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.

Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.

Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
