Our first big family vacation was fun. We visited friends (who are really family), the Pastor who married us (we were his first couple), and drove through some amazing countryside. The valleys in TN, North & South Carolina are amazing as we drove through the Appalachian mountain range. My beautiful bride walked part of the Appalachian Trail. 

We visited Amicalola Falls State Park where this photo was taken. We stopped at the trailhead to many trails that begin in Georgia. It’s an 8 mile hike from there to the A. T. Trailhead. 

I ask myself, would I love to move down there? The answer is, yes. However, would being inundated by so much beauty constantly would make said beauty familiar and less appreciated? Would I take it for granted? Although, I’d love to stand in my back yard and stare at a mountain directly behind. 

Since coming back, life has been a bit hectic. I’ve only written five pages in “Apophis”. I hope to finish the rough draft this week. Tonight I go back to a scene I’ve already written and try to flesh out the sights and smells. What would it look like to see the Two Witnesses speaking fire from their mouths? 

“And if anyone wants to harm them, fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way.” Revelation 11:5.

Will the smell of sulfur fill the courtyard? Will there be a “wumpf” like when you light gasoline that had been poured over a pile of leaves?
