The big boys have a game called The Beautiful Game. This game does not make my house look very beautiful. This game requires setting animal toys up in every part of the house. There is a large crocodile in the small space on the floor that gives me access to the washer and dryer. There is a barn and barnyard animals under my feet at the computer desk. A blue felt board is in the middle of the floor – water. The stairs, the kitchen, under the table, everwhere. I asked this morning why it is called the beautiful game. It is because the animals don’t kill each other. They all live in harmony, as they did before sin entered the world and as they will after Jesus Christ’s return.
