Ferris Wheel

by Shana Rank

This past weekend, at the Del Mar county fair, I had the opportunity to ride a very large ferris wheel. The perspective from the top of this is pretty incredible! To my left was the Pacific Ocean, and to my right was a sea of thousands of people, moving through walkways at the fair.

This was exactly the kind of perspective I needed–instead of focusing on my day, and often times my life under a microscope; this high up–and far back view gave me more clarity for the world around me. Riding this ferris wheel was a great reminder to take a few steps back when life gets too serious. I was also struck by the thought of God’s perfect view from up high, and His ability to look down on His creation–now that is an awesome example of perspective!
