We took a ferry across the Ohio ... a family member called it the "scary ferry". She advised that we keep our windows rolled down in case the ferry failed to make it across. I immediately agreed with her upon seeing the ferry.
The ferry ride was free. We shared the ride with a truck and trailer hauling cattle which made having the windows down a bit unpleasant.
The Ohio River crossing at the location of "scary ferry" is absolutely gorgeous which encouraged my nerves to settle. The view was so spectacular I even forgot about the cows. I must return to that location again someday.
We crossed over rivers on high old bridges and beautiful new bridges.
I love to cross rivers. It is more than the fact that there is somewhere that I long to be on the other side. I get caught up in the journey.
This morning I was thinking about the streams of living waters that are inside of us. I love it when I find a soul with the river of life flowing inside their soul. I savor the ambiance, the wisdom, the power to create, to teach, to pray that flows as a result of that internal river. I am always encouraged, exhorted, and strengthened when those eternal rivers touch my life.
I am grateful that our "rivers" have crossed.
"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow within him." Jesus said in John 7:38
