"A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles"
These are some fountains that enchanted me this year. I love fountains, and hope to see and take pictures of more during the year. The second and third pictures are a small fountain and a larger replica. The balls on the pedestal were covered with a thin layer of water and constantly spinning. The book of Proverbs likens many things to fountains. From Proverbs 10,13,14,16,&18: The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life...The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life...The fear of The Lord is a fountain of life...Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it...The words of a wise man's mouth are deep waters, but the fountain of wisdom is a bubbling brook. Fountains constantly renew their water and appear to be living and cleansing. The same is true for us when we follow God. We are cleansed and renewed every day and we have the promise of everlasting life. My bible commentary talked about the the long sought after fountain of youth, and it has truly been right in front of our eyes all this time in the person of Jesus, who renews all things, makes all things new, and gives us living water.
"How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life..." Psalm 36:7
