I find great pleasure standing on the observation deck and watching the water fall to the creek. The sight of the continuously falling water, the sound of the water crashing on the rocks and the feel of the water spray on my face all lend themselves to a wonderful sensory experience.
But these waterfalls teach a great lesson as well. Water always seeks the lowest point. Rivers flow to the ocean. From great mighty mountains, tiny creeks become great rivers and steadily flow low.
Decades ago when reading the allegorical novel, "Hind's Feet on High Places" by Hannah Hurnard, I was struck by the "Water Song". It was the song the water sang as it always sought the lowest place. I especially loved this portion:
Come, oh come! let us away--
"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hat highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father."Philippians 2:5-11
