Tonight, I was walking the dog with my girls before dinner. There was a pretty great sunset, and as usual, they begged me to take out my phone and take a photo or three. So I did.
As they always do, they rode off down the sidewalk on their scooters while I meandered along with the dog.
“Daddy, Daddy! I see heaven! I see heaven! Hurry up! Take a picture!”Callie
Then they came flying back up the hill shouting, “Daddy, Daddy! I see heaven! I see heaven! Hurry up! Take a picture!” And as Fluffy and I finally made our way around the bend to the next corner, the girls are excitedly pointing at the clouds in the sky. To them, it looked like what must be the gates of Heaven.
I love my kids, and I’m thankful that they are not only appreciative of the natural beauty around us, but that they are quick to attribute it to the Creator who is responsible for it. I definitely am not perfect, but we (Mandy and I) must be doing something right.
