Bigger Picture: Evening Prayer and Soccer Fields: Unexpected Beauty

This dusk found me waiting two hours in another county while our son did a soccer clinic. I spent the time knitting, reading, talking on the phone and praying my Liturgy of the Hours. Then I took a stroll with my cell phone along the edges of an enormous complex of soccer fields. As I walked, my shoes soaking in the damp from the afternoon rain,  I watched boys of varying ages run through drills and scrimmage. This is what I saw when I turned my head in the other direction.

O blest Creator, God most high
great ruler of the universe,
who robes the day with radiant light
now clothes the night in peaceful sleep.
