We often think of simplicity as just sitting and relaxing, it can be just walking in a area that is new to us, or in a place of serenity, stillness or quietness. I love the Toccoa Falls it is such a lovely place and just so serene, you can walk and hear the falls and it touches every sense of your being.
A meandering stream flows through the lower part of the 1,000-acre, wooded campus from the base of this spectacular 186 foot high waterfall. The Falls are a popular tourist attraction and campus retreat. There is so much beauty in our wonderful State of Georgia, especially in Northern Georgia, the mountains, the streams, the water falls, these are located in north Georgia in Lumpkin, Banks, Dawson, Union, Fannin, Gilmer, Rabun, Towns, Stephens, Habersham, Murray, White, Walker, Pickens and Dade Counties. Many of the 125 waterfalls shown have maintained trails and observation platforms, while others are difficult to reach. Still others are on private property and not open to the public. Directions are included for the falls on public property. Some of the most beautiful in the world.
Isaiah 32:17 "And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever". Let us close out this post with thinking of things of God, his marvellous creations, the beauty he has given for our eyes to enjoy, let each of enjoy the quietness of his world.
