The First Shoot of Grass

Even though I often remember my pastor saying
that God always makes a way out of no way,
periodically something awful happens,
and I think this time God has met Her match –
a child dies or a young father is paralyzed.
Nothing can possibly make things okay again.
People and grace surround
the critically injured person or the family.
Time passes.
It’s beyond bad.
It’s actually a nightmare.
But people don’t bolt,
and at some point
the first shoot of grass breaks through the sidewalk.
