The desert and the parched land will be glad;  the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;  it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy.


    part of my early hesitation to take God fully for His word stemmed from the story of the Israelites and their time in the wilderness. to this day, when i read that story i can never fully appreciate all that they went through, but i’m tired and sad just the same.  i cannot imagine forty minutes in a wilderness like they endured, let alone forty years.  i wonder what they thought of their time there.  i wonder how they waited like that..

head on over to Fancy Little Things to read the rest
