There's something about the water that immediately causes a tired soul to rest. Something about the rhythm of the waves, the light that reflects off the water, it is always moving, and yet so still.
Something about the silence, the murmuring of the trees, and the gentle lapse of the water against the shore.
At this very moment, it is providing a life source to plants, animals, people, and yet, you think that it is all your own, that this moment was meant for you and you only.
And it is all your own.
It is your silence, your spot of tranquility, your escape. This is your water.
Your time to remove yourself from a modern age, and go back to the simple pleasures of being... you... nothing more... nothing less.

It's on!!! Jonathan and I were sitting at the dining room table the last week of September, and after having thought about Angelic Ministries for a while, suddenly had the revelation to use OUR gifts for their good. Wouldn't you know that within a week the idea was approved by the gallery space, had a local television network wanting to air the event, and radio stations ready to give air time to announce it!
ONE WEEK, and the design for the campaign was finished, the major details were complete, and Angelic Ministries was elated to hear that God was answering their prayers for a fundraiser in a very specific way.
In less than a month invitations are ordered, posters are ordered, sponsors who believe in the event have given of their resources, and Knoxville Unites 11.11.11 is developing a permanent website to be complete in merely DAYS!!!
These kinds of events are usually labored over for 6+months... But hey!!! If God can create the entire world in 6 days, then he can make this event shine in short moments. God has been so good, and now were seeing the vision for this event, turn into a long term ministry in Knoxville.
One that fuels and supports unity in Knoxville, that pulls the community together to see needs met, and keeps this economy relationally driven and thriving.
So, save the date! 11.11.11 from 6:30-9:30pm and the Emporium Center in Downtown Knoxville. We're going to have music, food, a silent auction, and more, all to benefit the wonderful work that Angelic Ministries does.
See you soon!
