    God is in the grief of unmet expectations

    This was not what I pictured the first moments with my son to be like. There I was, savoring those first moments with him . . . squatting in the front seat of our parked car, en route to the hospital. In a grocery store parking lot, I waddled into the back of an ambulance with my fresh-from-God son for the remainder of the trip. I was exposed and depleted, my body just ran a marathon of its own in childbirth.

Depending on the position of the sun and how scattering is involved, you get anywhere from a red, orange sunset to a purple pink sunset. Factors such as storms and pollution affect this, also. But oh,…
