What an awesome gift I received today. Isn't there a promise somewhere that says the desert places will blossom?
Today as I was walking from the beach to our car, having been praying for a friend who was going through a dry spell, God showed me his handywork once again. He'd promised Hosea while in the midst of great pain, that he would open a door in the valley of Achor (that's where Achan, whose name meant trouble,met his end). When all seems to be over and we are feeling like we're living in a barren desert, God comes through with a precious gift--like this beautiful flower. There it was in a dry sandy place. I doubt that it has seen any water in weeks, but see how vibrant it is!
