Thoughts While Creating
Is Heaven a place on Earth?
Whether you believe that statement or not, we all know deep in our hearts that this earth is a beautiful and mystical place. Nature, a gift of God, unfolds its beauty for us on a daily basis.
In today’s scene, the bridge of the falls, stretches high above the gentle waters of the stream. The water tumbles down along the rocky mountain ridges and splashes into a wet mist. Nature, over the millennia, has carved these beautiful falls through the rocks of the mountains. My grandparents, who built this hideaway cabin, set it on the banks of this beautiful waterfall.
When I was younger I would walk with my grandparents across the bridge of falls. We would stop along the way and look over at the rushing water while my grandfather told me the stories of our family. In one direction we would witness the sun making its journey down for the day and in the other we would see the moon rising in all its fullness for the coming night.
My family still comes here to celebrate the Bridge of Falls Memories as we call them. We walk across the bridge and re-tell the stories of those that have come before. What better way to continue the tradition and make new memories.
