This evening I walked into the high school football stadium to watch the girls flag football championship game. The sky was a beautiful shade of pink. The longer I sat in the stadium, the more vibrant the sky became, but most of the color was just behind the stadium. Eventually, the anticipation of a beautiful sunset was killing me so I climbed to the stop of the seats to get a better view. It was breathtaking.

A few minutes later Hallie’s friend was standing next to me taking in the beauty. And before long, Hallie started climbing up the stairs to see what was peaking our interest. Before she made it to the top, she asked what we were doing and I replied, “Cloud appreciation.”

She heard, “God appreciation” which I like so much better. We were standing on the top of a high school football stadium appreciating God and his colorful masterpiece.
