Jan 3, 2010


This was a special weekend. Last September as an anniversary gift for my husband I purchased tickets to the Redskins - Chargers game in San Diego on Jan 3, 2010. The Redskins rarely play a game this close to home and my husband is a big fan and had never had a chance to go to their game before. So we took about a 70 mile trip to Qualcomm Stadium  for a very sunny and beautiful game experience. It was 75 degrees in San Diego and in fact was quite warm in the sun. God graced us with some cloud cover and so the weather was perfect. Once we arrived and decided to get something to drink we saw the sign below. Can you believe a bottled water costs $5.25? That is just incredible!

It seems like everywhere you turn the cost of even the simple things are going up. Well, it was a special occasion and we were thankful we had the chance to celebrate so we had to pay the price.The sign reminded us of the one thing that is paid for in full - salvation through Jesus Christ. So we noted this and smiled that we are so blessed to know Christ and thought maybe we could share this as a great new ad campaign:

Two tickets to a once in a life game close to home to celebrate your 28th wedding anniversary - $200
Parking at the stadium - $25 
Two waters and two hot dogs - $20
Knowing Jesus Christ as your Savior and knowing He is in charge of your life - priceless!!

Have you been to any sporting or entertainment events lately and experienced the same thing?

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8"
