I obviously enjoy exploring and fishing small mountain brooks. I quickly find myself being absorbed in exploring each micro pool and riffle as I work my way along. This level of concentration quickly erases all other things from my conscious thought. But another part of me needs to get a larger perspective, a more expansive view, the kind that comes after a long hike up a steep mountain. This past weekend my oldest daughter, her childhood friend, and I decided to climb the local giant. My daughter will be leaving for college in a few weeks and it was a great day to spend the morning together climbing. Life is busy and full of changes and it is easy to feel like things are too chaotic and spinning out of control. Mountain top views remind me that there is a sovereign God who rules over every detail of my life and nothing is out of His benevolent control. So enjoy the view !
