~An *Amazing* Evening!~

We interrupt our usual blog programmimg to share an amazing evening.
Last night we were blessed to have front row seats to the Chicago Cubs second home game of the season and the World Series ring presentation.

It's a unique perspective.
It was fun to watch all the newscasters getting set up for the big night. 

ABC sports anchor Jim Rose was all business, while Cheryl Scott, meteorolgist was having fun.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel greeting retired Cubs catcher and 
Dancing with the Stars darling, David Ross.

The actual presentation was facing home plate, but we didn't mind.

The players were so excited and it was contagious.

Anthony Rizzo receiving his ring from 86 year old super fan Erv Schreiber.

I love their gold numbered uniforms!

Wow! Such an amazing night!

With a view of what takes place behind the scenes
Mark Giangreco, news anchor.

The excitement was amazing!

You could tell that it was hard to put the rings away and get ready for the game.

We even got a glimpse of the World Series trophy.

What a ring! 108 diamonds with rubies and sapphires.
There is even a goat on the inside of the ring - finally putting to rest the curse of the billy goat.

Catcher Willson Contreras and Pitcher John Lackey ready for the game.

All set for the National Anthem.

Jason Heyward and John Jay

Albert Almora Jr. and Gary Jones.

The Cubs may have lost, but it was still a great night.
I am so glad that we were able to experience this as a family and create memories to last a lifetime.
I'll be back shortly to resume our regulary scheduled stitching :)

 This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence: If our hearts condemn us, we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.
~1 John 3:19-22
