Everyone should have a favorite spot in nature where you can sit awhile and enjoy God in His creation. Well this is mine.
It is a little corner of Rahway Park where the river leads to this mini waterfall. I love to come here and sit on the rocks. It is a great place to say rosary, read a book or just sit and listen to the roar of the water while contemplating God and His beautiful creation.
I ventured down to the falls two days after hurricane Irene. On Sunday when the storm hit, the river rose, covered the falls and then proceeded to rise and cover the bridge and roadway. This sacred spot is a five minute walk from my parish church, so on Tuesday after 7am Mass, I decided to take advantage of the cool, clear morning and walk there to see if I could get some pictures.
The waters had receded enough for me to sit for awhile and get some pictures. A duck or two even stayed long enough for me to get a picture while he primped his feathers.
It was hard to believe that only two days earlier this spot was impassable. The river was now calm and shone like glass reflecting the nearby trees. The falls still roared but now you could see them.
I live in a busy suburban town, but this little spot is God's gift to me and other residents away from all the noise and busyness.
Another fun fact about this spot~one of our priests says a sunrise Mass here every Easter Sunday.
