“We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28
The closer you get to a waterfall, the water in the stream flows fasters and stronger. The closer you are to the base of the falls, the more water you see. It’s amazing how at the start of the stream how peaceful the water is, and how slow it is flowing down. Then as you approach the base water is louder and more intense. Life is like this when you are finding your purpose. It never gets easier as you arrive at your destiny, but you are more prepared for it because of the journey you have already taken. We often wonder why does it take so long for us to reach our destination when the journey is what prepares us for it. We have to be able to handle the easy part before we come up to the section that will challenge us the most.
The other waterfall that is easy to get to is Anna Ruby Falls. It is located near Helen, Georgia. Helen is a fun German theme town in the North Georgia mountains. My family and I have visited Helen several times throughout the years. My wife and I visited there dozens of times while we were dating. We have taken the kids camping there a few times as well. We always have a great time checking out the shops and having delicious German food. The walk to the falls is not too bad. The road is paved. The best part is the entire walk up is an amazing view. I had my camera out the entire time taking pictures of everything I saw. My family started to get a little annoyed with me because I was taking forever to get to the top. The view at the top is incredible. It is hard to capture all of the falls at once. Hopefully these photos will give you a sense of how amazing of a scene this is.
