The View on the Hill

Our little house in the jungle lies on a very large hill. To get to the kitchen and river, you have to go down our hill, up another hill, and then down that one. Also outside our house, there are cows, like a lot of cows. When we are going down to breakfast, or any other meal of the day, I always look at the ground to make sure I am not going to fall or step in a cow patty. I walk with my eyes fixated on the ground, making sure my next step is a good one. At the top of the second hill, there is one of the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen. I rarely see it though because I am watching the ground. I started to wonder what other great things I am missing because I am too scared to make the wrong step. God has laid this amazing view right in front of me, and I am missing it because I am trying to be in control. That is crazy to me. So, I’ve been trying to make an effort not to watch the ground, and not to take too much control, because He has it all covered.


Love, Reese
