Living Waters

Most people reading blogs are fortunate enough to have an abundant supply of drinking water. Happily, so do I - but I can never pass by this stream in the village of Bajot without thinking "what a luxury."
The water flows from the depths of the earth, bringing with it minerals. It flows freely, a living water source in the middle of town. Nice to see that there was enough appreciation for this gift of nature, that over the years it received its own 'home'.

Hello Isadora.

That is some water fountain. Maybe you call it by another name. It looks inviting to me. Nice photography.

Isadora, you are so true here.
I tend to think of water like a resource that is always there and even the one we have to pay we sometimes spend it in a foolish manner.

The second photo shows a very nice construction.

Interesting structure built over it. I bet the water is cold and refreshing.

Beautiful 'home' over the fountain. Love your message for truly we really don't appreciate our clear clean water like we should. Wonderful photos.

Isadora, thanks for sharing this post with us. I love it. Living water is what we all need indeed. I love this photo and we should never take the living water for granted. Nice one!
