Water Fall

Waterfalls are fascinating.
Such power and beauty.

We stood there at Snoqualmie Falls
like so many others around us
captivated for a few moments
by the
of falling water.

Kyler and Kacin even worked together to compose this here poem
about our stop:
Loud, Beautiful
Falling, Rushing, Splashing
Snoqualmie Falls

I've been thinking about that waterfall,
how very simple the concept of falling water is,
yet how glorious it is to see!

Many days I feel like my life is the one
falling, rushing, and loud,
much like the waterfall.
where's the grace and majesty?

if I stepped back
and put myself on the ground
across from the falls
I could see that all this rushing, falling, loudness
of life
the hard times, challenges, and troubles
are really working out to create something beautiful.
Power and strength come from a fall.

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God."
~Romans 8:28
