A few months ago, we PCS'ed to Cannon AFB in New Mexico and I met a wonderful group of Christian ladies. One day as we were praying about an upcoming event, the Lord led us to Isaiah 35.
"The desert and the parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice and blossom
like the crocus"
Isaiah goes on to describe the streams in the desert and the restoration of the people of God.
I am thankful that even though we live in a desert, either physically or spiritually, God causes the flowers to bloom like a beautiful oasis.
