The Desert Rejoices — 19 Comments

  1. This is beautiful Janis… a good follow on from my desert theme WFW last week!

    Have a blessed week, and thank you for this shower of refreshing rain!

  2. These are beautiful photos, Janis and such a wonderful analogy. Only God can bring relief to our parched souls, and He makes beauty in the desert.


  3. Janis…what a fantastic way to journey through this verse in pictures! Perfect really…We are dry and He waters and restores…


  4. This is just the song of my heart at the moment as we are actually coming out of drought and are down to stage 2 water restrictions when all we really cannot do is water our lawns.
    If you look around my blog you will see I have been just rejoicing in the growth this spring.
    God is so good. Yes I learnt to praise Him in the desert…..there is a song about that at the base of my blog, but I am loving praising Him in the rain and spring growth.
