Five Reasons I Love the Water

If you read my about me page, you know that I have always been drawn to the water!
Yes, it’s true that without water:

  • life cannot exist
  • growth is impossible
  • thirst would never be quenched

To me water is more than an element of nature or a scientific series of facts.

I’m certainly not alone here.
Countless artists have attempted to capture the magic that water is on canvas, in words of a poem or book, legends have been born and passed down for generations – all inspired by the sight and the sounds of being in or at the water’s edge. The greatest seafarers and swimmers of all time know that the water can be as healing as it can be deadly and there’s almost a reverence for the power that the sea wields.

I speak only for myself and what it does for me:

For me it’s one place where the spiritual seems to collide with the physical in a palpable way.

Being by the water and in the water causes me to look up- with gratitude and awe for the Creator, but also to look in and recognize His work in me.

It’s calming and exhilarating at once.

Something in my spirit is drawn to the rushing, unruly waves of the ocean.
The rhythmic flow of water rushing in and rolling back out seems to resonate with some inarticulate part of me that makes me think of all that is good and all that is painful at the same time.

Few things are as comforting as taking in the soft spring or summer air while overlooking a serene lake.

Did you know...

"The ocean is blue because water absorbs colors in the red part of the light spectrum. Like a filter, this leaves behind colors in the blue part of the light spectrum for us to see. The ocean may also take on green, red, or other hues as light bounces off of floating sediments and particles in the water. Most of the ocean, however, is completely dark. Hardly any light penetrates deeper than 656 feet, and no light penetrates deeper than 3,280 feet."


As a Christian who believes the Creation story, I find it fascinating that the Spirit of God was hanging out (hovering is the word used), over the water Himself- and it was there that He decided to create light! Immediately after creating a separation from the light and the dark, He separated the water from the land. (Genesis 1:1-6)

Is there something that draws you in like I describe water drawing me?
Is there a place you go to reflect, to find serenity and calm?
What does it for you?
