The Water Spirit 11 17 2011
The Water Spirit was the first life on earth. In happiness it trickled and gurgled.
Jubilee it swam to and fro in the free clean water God had provided for it.
It saw that much around it looked like it, but was not the same as it, in that it did not enjoy the water like it did.
One day it looked around it to see dark plankton like ash descending to the earthen basin of its domain.
Eons passed on Earth and much change had happened, but once again the water spirit swam freely in the renewed blessing of God.
When the water cleared one time it decided that there should be more like itself. The water spirit then said, “May all the clear blue water on earth be happy just like me!”
Great rolling waves of enthusiasm then danced together on its surface.
