Frivolous display


I was out in Northfield this past weekend with my family, visiting friends on the campus of the soon to be C.S. Lewis College. We brought out steak tips from The Meat House and corn on the cob from Zacks farm stand in York, and while all that was getting ready for the eating, I wandered about campus with my camera.

As I was looking up at the ever changing sun set sky, it occurred to me: God picks his favorite places to show off.

The clouds and colors were in constant movement, seemingly slow motion, and yet quicker than I could keep up with. A thousand shades of purple, pink, salmon, blue, swimming with indifferent fading light. And then gone in an instant, only to be replaced with something even more stunning.

It was a frivolous display of talent.

Yay, God.
