Through the window of our hotel room high above the streets, we could see it: The sun was setting, and it burned a gorgeous, brilliant orange, red, and yellow. I grabbed my camera and took a photo but was grievously disappointed by what I saw on the view screen: a little yellow dot—not even close. To capture, preserve, and control the richness of the Lord and all he has made is impossible. Perhaps there are moments to stop trying to put the living God and his ways in a box and focus my energies on simply living, responding, and giving thanks instead.
