    you know, sis

    it's a powerful thang to drink of the life-giving stream.....make a brotha bow down and kneel at the fount of blessings and quench his thirst ....fah-eva....

    Thank you for just "touching" on the beautiful mysteries inside *living waters*....

    Need to read this again.....

    Thank You Hunter

    I haven't always allowed Him to be apart of my life this way, but at age 23, after having fallen to my lowest point...He showed Himself to be real. He came of a that book (bible) and brought deliverance to me. From that day on...I am consumed with Him and make no apologies for it.


    *I thirst no more because I drink from Him*
