Sun sets on the Cajun prairie beyond Friday night lights.

I’ve appreciated the imagery of Friday night sunset beyond Bobcat Stadium for over twenty years. Since our kids are grown, we don’t go to high school games as often, so last night at the local Jamboree I witnessed the simple elegance of the sunset’s glory with renewed appreciation.

The glorious scene represents Americana from South Louisiana.  It’s an iconic, slow-motion movie unfolding in gradually-darkening scenes for thirty minutes or so, from dusk’s beginning until the final glimmer of orange/pink daylight succumbs to descending night.

An ever-elegant reminder: Praise to the Almighty who created the flatness of the prairie with its life-giving cycle of rising and setting sun!
