The Atchafalaya Basin is a famous landmark in Louisiana.  Although people passing through don’t know how to spell or pronounce the name, it is what most people remember about their trip.  Many years ago a bridge was built that spanned the swamp and created a direct route between Lafayette and Baton Rouge.  It towers 20 feet above the alligator and snake infested waters and provides a bird’s-eye view of the beautiful cypress knees poking from the water and Spanish moss hanging from the trees.  Many accounts of crossing the bridge include exaggerations of its length but that legend increases the “tellability” of the story.  If you are fortunate enough to be traveling west across Whiskey Bay when the Sun is setting, you will be treated to a magnificent combination of God’s handiwork and man’s ingenuity.  Is it time for you to put a bridge across some uneasy waters in your life?
