I Am A River.

I wrote this a while back after a conversation with a girlfriend who compared women to water. I thought it was interesting. What are you?

I AM A RIVER

Darci said we are all like water.

Some of us are rain—alternating quiet with raging intensity, dramatically moving from place to place.

Others are lakes—docile and serene and contained. They are a nice place to go to get away.

Still others are oceans—wild and uncontained, but with the occasional buried treasure.

And then there are rivers—the place for adventure and sometimes peace, but always in motion, moving in the same direction.

I am a river.

Maybe an ocean.

No, a river.

I used to be an ocean for sure. But God's grace has matured me. I've lessened a bit. : )

I'm a river.

Nice post.

What about men? If I was a woman ... I'd be a river.
