Water, water


Waiting for the bus to bring us out of the far outskirts of Dublin,
all I could think of was water.
Frankie Lane kept singing in my head,

All day I've faced the barren waste,
Without the taste of water:
Cool water. (Water.)
Old Dan and I, with throats burned dry,
An' souls that cry for water: (Water.)
Cool, (Water.)
Clear, (Water.)
Water. (Water.)

What an interesting photo...

and the poem about water, or was it a song... made me wonder, why was there no drinking water in Dublin?

Glad to be stopping by here this evening.

Praying your mom is happy and feeling better.

Love
Lidia

Dear Lidia,
It's a song from an old western movie.
Just where we stood there was no place to buy water and I hadn't brought my water bottle with me.

Serina claimed the Dublin water was fine, I never gave it a chance.
My stomach is very picky about water.

We had a very nice week end in Sauda with my Mom. Leaving is the hardest part.
Thanks for praying.

Very Cool Pic! The lyrics go right along beautifully!

Sonja said...

Isn't it funny how those songs we grew up with stay in our heads? I remember nearly every word and the exact tunes of most of them. It's why I love those stations that play the music for us 'oldies but goodies'... looks like a fun trip Felisol. How does the scenery compare to Norway?

Hugs to your mom!

In an already moist place like Dublin, that faucet is so big that our notions of humidity might change right now (!) if this giant plumbing fitting were turned on...the graphics make for fine advertising billboard...

Terry said...

HE GAVE ME THE WELL
by rodney griffin

I came to Jesus, I was thirsty and dry;
Nothing could tame this longing of mine.
For a small drink of water is all I would ask,
But He gave me something He knew would last.

For up from my soul came a river of life,
A spring of salvation that shall never run dry;
This story of mercy is now mine to tell,
I asked him for water, He gave me the well.

It's hard to believe that I'm part of his bride,
For no-one could ever feel more worthless than I;
For years I've been searching for life giving source,
But I did not find one 'till I found the Lord.

For up from my soul came a river of life,
A spring of salvation that shall never run dry;
This story of mercy is now mine to tell,
I asked him for water, He gave me the well.


John 4:14
But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

jesus is the WELL!...

Colleen said...

What an interesting post! Both visually and the intriguing words...
Wishing you a lovely sunny day!

Betty Roan said...

Now that is an odd way to advertise. I haven't thought of that song in years and I suspect will be replaying it all day. ;)

Reminds nme of the lines from the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner
Water ,water everywhere but not a drop to drink.

In the Bible also water has special significance

As the deer pants for the water so my soul longs for Thee - Psalms.


Come everyone who thirsts, and I will give you drink.

Jesus said , The water I give you will never make you thirsty again.

Jesus is the water of life.

I am thirsty Felisol, there are some areas in my life I am really thristy. I am waiting for Go d to turn on the tap and let the water flow out.

Pray God may quench my thirst.

I like you photo

Felisol said...

Dear Amrita,
I will remind God of his promises.
When we pray,"give us day by day our daily bread, we actually pray, "give us what we need physically, emotionally and spiritually.
That is my prayer for you just now.
Love Felisol

Dear Magical Mystery Teacher,
I asked my daughter, she's not sure either. Far south west in Dublin near a car rental firm.
Cheap people, they would only rent to people over 25.
We took the bus home.
...And found some nice people at the airport. Serina drove coast to coast on the left hand side of the street.
Great country,great scenery, great people, those in the west in particular.
You have much fun coming.

Mrs. Mac said...

Now I have that oldie-but-goodie song playing in my head ;)

In the U.S. you have to be 25 years old to rent a car too. (With perhaps the exception if you're a soldier on leave).

I'm sure you had a wonderful time in Ireland. One day I hope to travel there.
