An Apology to a Faithful Reader

Once upon a time (like today), a blogger attempted to moderate comments before he had consumed enough Diet Mountain Dew to clear his morning mental fog. He had talked with a faithful blog reader the night before who had made a pertinent comment on his blog (below) about living water. In his pre-Dew fog, the inattentive blogger accidentally clicked on "reject" instead of "publish." To his horror, he could not find an undo option, and he was sad.

Then, he remembered the email reminder he had received containing the inadvertently deleted comment. So, thanks to my email is the comment!

A wonderful illustration, reminded me of what I had just read in Zechariah (which to me brings up images of Rivendell, the mythical Elfen city in 'Lord of the Rings'....the city built around a magnificent waterfall...) I was particularly struck by the phrase 'living waters'...which your illustration dramatized as well. Zechariah 14:8 On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea. It shall continue in summer as in winter.

Thank you Jeff for your patience, friendship and forgiveness in what could have been a devastating event of unintended deletion! And for everyone else, here is a pic I found of Rivendell from the first LOTR movie:
