“Mom! Lerk!” Those are words I will always cherish. Elsie still adds a stray “r” sound to the word “look” that is so endearing. Tonight as we drove home from doing some errands, it was sunset. The sky was turning pink and Elsie seemed to notice for the first time ever that the sky, which is either blue or black, can actually become her favorite color. “Mom! Lerk! It’s so pink!” I told her that God did that. “Elsie, God painted the sky pink tonight just for you! Do you like it?” “Jesus? God painted the sky?” She nodded that she liked it. “It’s so pink.”
Thanks, God, for making the sky tonight… so… pink.
