Anything else you’re interested in is not going to happen if you can’t breathe the air and drink the water. Don’t sit this one out. Do something. You are by accident of fate alive at an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet.”
– Carl Sagan
Do you ever wonder why the dinosaur became extinct? Could it have been for lack of water and if we don’t drink sufficient water, we will become sick, dehydrated and then could even die too!
I would like to share something from a friend of mine, Yoriko Todd, and goes something like this: Beautiful water. Makes me think of spring with all the snow melting.
But they take a long time to create. A waterfall is an area of a river or stream where the water flows over a steep vertical drop, often landing in a plunge pool below.
Erosion plays an important part in the formation of waterfalls. As a stream flows, it carries sediment that can erode the soft bed rock (limestone and sandstone) underneath. Eventually this cuts deep enough so that only harder rock, such as granite, remains. Waterfalls develop as the granite forms cliffs and ledges.
Waterfalls themselves also contribute to erosion. Stream velocity increases as it nears a waterfall, increasing the amount of erosion. The movement of water at the top of a waterfall can flatten rocks at the edge. The plunge pool at the base gets bigger as rushing water and sediment erodes it and the area behind the waterfall is worn away, creating cave-like shelters.
Other process that form waterfalls include earthquake, landslide, glacier, or volcanoes which can disrupt the land of a stream bed creating cliffs, cracks, faults and other changes in elevation.
The tallest waterfall in the world is Angel Falls in Venezuela where the water falls 979 m (3,212 ft.). The fall is so long that at warmer times of the year the water turns into mist before it reaches the stream below.
The valley of Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland is a deep glacial formed valley that contains 72 waterfalls. The streams flowing from the mountains on either side, reach the rocky verge walls of the valley and cascade over. The most famous of the waterfalls is the Staubbach Falls less than 1 km from Lauterbrunnen village.
Waterfalls can be classified by type. There are many types of waterfalls and it is possible for a waterfall to fit more than one category.
Ledge (Classical, Curtain) waterfalls descend vertically over a cliff maintaining partial contact with the bedrock.
Block (Sheet) waterfalls descend from a wide stream or river, Niagara Falls, in the U.S. and Canada, is a block waterfall.
Cascade waterfalls descend over a series of rock steps, they are usually a relatively safe type of waterfall. Monkey Falls, in India is an example.
Cataract waterfalls are large, powerful and often dangerous. A very wide and wild cataract fall is the Iguazu River at the Brazil and Argentina border.
Chute waterfalls force a large amount of water through narrow vertical passages at a high pressure. For example, Three Chute Falls, Yosemite National Park, US.
Fan waterfalls are like the name suggests, as the water descends it spreads out horizontally. Virgin Falls is a fan waterfall in British Columbia, Canada.
Frozen waterfalls will freeze over for at least part of the year. Mountaineers often test their skills by climbing frozen waterfalls. E.g. the Fang, Vail, Colorado, US.
Horsetail waterfalls will maintain contact with the bedrock underneath them. The Reichenbach Falls, in Switzerland, is such a waterfall which is famous for being where fictional detective Sherlock Holmes allegedly fell to his death.
Multi-step (Tiered or Staircase) waterfalls are a series of waterfalls falling one after the other each with their own plunge pool. The falling lakes of Plitvice Lakes National Park, in Croatia, are an example of multi-step waterfalls.
Plunge waterfalls are fast moving with horizontal thrust over the edge causing the water to completely lose contact with the bedrock, e.g. Japan’s Hanoi Falls.
Punchbowl waterfalls descend in a constricted form that spreads out into a wide pool at their base. Waialua Falls in Hawaii is an example of a punchbowl waterfall.
Segmented waterfalls form separate flows of water as they descend. The Niagretta Falls in Victoria, Australia, have separate streams that join back up in the pool.
Many waterfalls around the world are used to generate hydroelectric power.
Waterfalls can be grouped into 10 broad classes based on the average volume of water going over falls. Class 10 waterfalls include Niagara Falls, Khone Falls and Inga Falls. Victoria Falls (Class 9), Gullfoss (Class 8), Angel Falls (Class 7), Yosemite Falls (Class 6), Sutherland Falls (Class 5).
Now, what if, just what if, this is the reason all of our friends, the dinosaur became extinct because of the lack of these processes which are natural processes for which God made possible for all living things to be able to survive, however, if we begin to destroy all those things which God has created, then we can create and cause devastation and havoc for our own world!
Tank wants to share many quotes about water just to remind us of how important water is for us, our health, our well-being, for growing, for healing, for curing, and much more needed in order for anything to thrive and grow and be healthy!
Just like a plant, if we take care of and water and pamper that plant; just watch it grow back each year on its very own and the same goes for our bodies, the dinosaur, and any living thing on this earth to survive in a way of speaking!
Remember in the Bible and the mustard seed and does this plant look familiar at all to you?
Matthew 17:20 ESV
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”
Matthew 13:31-32 ESV
He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
Mark 4:30-32 ESV
And he said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”
Try and memorize one of these quotes each day of the week, just to remind yourself of how important and vital water is for our living and being! If you memorize one of these quotes for 7 days of a week, then you got it covered and always remember how important it is to drink water!
Remember: We are not doctors, nor profess we are, but God put into our minds to share how important it really is that we feed our bodies water continuously, and He wants us to know that for us to survive and live long and prosperous well-being lives we must drink and drink and stay hydrated! Even when we feel sick, drink some water next time and see what happens and don’t stop drinking until you feel better! You know how when sometimes we take medicine when we think we have a headache? Well…have you ever taken an aspirin, etc. and still had the headache! Well, instead of manmade medicine, try God’s water and don’t stop until you feel better! We assure you it will work.
Now we don’t want anybody out there to stop taking their medications which are prescribed for your well-being, until they speak with their doctors, and then God will let him know that you don’t need the medicines anymore! But we would rather you speak with God yourself and ask for healing and He has a healing for you!
Ezekiel 47 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Healing Waters and Trees
47 Then he brought me back to the door of the temple; and there was water, flowing from under the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the front of the temple faced east; the water was flowing from under the right side of the temple, south of the altar. 2 He brought me out by way of the north gate, and led me around on the outside to the outer gateway that faces east; and there was water, running out on the right side.
3 And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. 4 Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist. 5 Again he measured one thousand, and it was a river that I could not cross; for the water was too deep, water in which one must swim, a river that could not be crossed. 6 He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen this?” Then he brought me and returned me to the bank of the river.
7 When I returned, there, along the bank of the river, were very many trees on one side and the other. 8 Then he said to me: “This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. 9 And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live. There will be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters go there; for they will be healed, and everything will live wherever the river goes. 10 It shall be that fishermen will stand by it from En Gedi to En Eglaim; they will be places for spreading their nets. Their fish will be of the same kinds as the fish of the Great Sea, exceedingly many. 11 But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt.12 along the bank of the river, on this side and that, will grow all kinds of trees used for food; their leaves will not wither, and their fruit will not fail. They will bear fruit every month, because their water flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for medicine.”
For the many quotes we mentioned about earlier, you may read and memorize them from this site and we hope you remember the next time you think you are sick, drink some water and see what happens!
We assure YOU there will be NO side effects, and who can get sick from drinking water?
When they went ashore the animals that took up a land life carried with them a part of the sea in their bodies, a heritage which they passed on to their children and which even today links each land animal with its origin in the ancient sea. Fish, amphibian, and reptile, warm-blooded bird and mammal – each of us carries in our veins a salty stream in which the elements sodium, potassium, and calcium are combined in almost the same proportions as in sea water. This is our inheritance from the day, untold millions of years ago, when a remote ancestor, having progressed from the one-celled stage, first developed a circulatory system in which the fluid was merely the water of the sea. In the same way, our lime-hardened skeletons are a heritage from the calcium-rich ocean of Cambrian time. Even the protoplasm that streams within each cell of our bodies has the chemical structure impressed upon all living matter when the first simple creatures were brought forth in the ancient sea. And as life itself began in the sea, so each of us begins his individual life in a miniature ocean within his mother’s womb, and in the stages of his embryonic development repeats the steps by which his race evolved, from gill-breathing inhabitants of a water world to creatures able to live on land.’ Carson – The Sea around Us (1951)
