Desert Diaries 5

Strange, unexpected things
May be found in the desert
An empty space to meet with God
Free from normal distractions
But it doesn’t stay empty
For God will fill it

Look around. wander about
A blade of grass
A perfect white stone
Find the dry cracked mud
By the seasonal stream
A shoot pushing through
That will flower with joy

Jesus is the light of the whole world.
Things appear different according to what light we view them in.
The church in candlelight looks different than in daylight or electric light.
Sometimes we view things through rose coloured spectacles.
Sometimes life looks blue.
Let the light of Christ shine through us and brighten our way
Let us see the world in the light of truth, of lover, of joy.
