Jewels in the Desert

Around the corner from my house, someone has taken an old single story duplex, torn out the ratty yard and put in extensive drought resistant cacti complexity. I pass by every day, twice a day.

In the morning, when the sun is just right, the many twinkling jewel sized blossoms in his yard sparkle and shimmer in mid-air, vibrant despite the lack of water resources.

This garden, these jewels remind me that God promises to make a desert into a garden. It reminds me that even in lack, God can sustain me, can make me bloom and in that desolation, the bloom will be that much more noticeable.
