ahhhh...this brought back some memories for me. I was raised in San Diego and passed through Yuma numerous times on our way to Phoenix. I never cared much for the desert, but my mom LOVED it. We camped in those tan hills, hiked in the tan dirt, etc, etc.Endless tan serves well to help one appreciate green!!
Yes, we do live in the shadowlands and if Yuma can be loved, just imagine what we'll think of Heaven!!!

May God bless!

You did a beautiful job with this entry which read like a page from a devotional book.
This works as a devotion and is very encouraging. I love the metaphors and opposites, "a stream in our desert," "garden in the desert," "flood our hearts with hope,". The quotes and scripture fit perfectly for the piece.
