Fountain of Youth
There is a legend of a Fountain of Youth believed to be in Florida. The legend has different variations of regaining one's youth. Some say must you drink the water, while others suggest if you bathe in the water it will restore your youth. Some records date back to the 15th century and stories of people believing it to be absolutely true.
There is a Water of Life that can restore our lives but it is not in Florida! It is in the man, Jesus Christ! Jesus said in St. John 4:14, "but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life."
