THE LIVING BRIDGE




This is a perfect example in my mind - how God and helping yourself work together.

Nothing is possible without God first. Then we have to decide how to use his gifts. We have to be smart and think things out. Then use what he gave us.

This is so awesome. Thanks Linda B.

Great example about never giving up!

This is a beautiful place, and I love the last shot of the double bridge. I have seen one of these, must have been on a blog or something, but it was just a picture, I didn't know the whole story! Wonder how they get the walkway down?

That was fascinating, and the living bridges are so beautiful to me. I would love to visit that place and walk across them.

There are probably a hundred life lessons, and lessons on faith just from those bridges.

Thank you. LOVED it!

God has always given me what I wanted, but alwasy in His time, not mine. This is lovely.

Sandra said...

totally amazing, never seen anything like it. we have those strangler figs here, in all our woods, but never thought about training the roots. these are talented and very smart people and passing it on by the generations. wow

Quite wonderful! You always manage to find such lovely things to share with us all, and we thank you for that my friend.

The Brown Recluse said...

so often the word "awesome" gets overused. In the case of the Indians and their living bridge, the word is spot on. Simply Awesome.

Buttercup said...

As ever, thanks for all you share. Your dancing signature is adorable!

Angela said...

The Lord had given us all many talents that we need to discover and use to the glory of God!

Hugs,

Amazing! Many lessons to glean. A very important heritage to leave behind. If only we could make this kind of difference in our "modern world" for our future generations rather than leaving them a giant mess to clean up--if it's even possible to clean up!!

Thanks for sharing this!! My kids will love seeing it too. :-)
