In general the window represents the creative and restorative power of God. The window could be called the resurrection window.

The blue water is reminiscent of Genesis 2: 5-10. "a river flowed from Eden to water the garden, and from there it divided to make four streams".

This theme should recall the original creative power of God. The water theme also recalls Exodus 15: 22-27 and Exodus 17: 1-7 when the people murmured in the desert and put God to the test. Water was provided, when, following God's direction, Moses struck the rock.

The theme is that God provides for his people.
