Karen's love of the water started as a child, when her family visited Lake Itasca-the very beginning of the Mississippi River. As a child, she understood that we come from God, and we return to God much like a river and its source. With all its twists and turns, a river is fascinating yet unpredictable, like life.

You see how it goes. We find ourselves longing for someone or something that is not. Is it because we do not know how to love?Karen's story may cause you to reconsider what love really is.Ecclesiastes 1:7 "All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again."
