The Splendor of Spring

God's Splendor:The Charm of Home
Even the wilderness and desert will be glad in those days.
The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses.

God's Splendor:The Charm of Home
Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy!  The desserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon.

God's Splendor:The Charm of Home
There the Lord will display his glory, the splendor of our God. With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees.

God's Splendor:The Charm of Home
Say to those with fearful hearts, "Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.  He is coming to save you."  ~Isaiah 35:1-4

God's Splendor:The Charm of Home
"Oh, that we might know the Lord!  Let us press on to know him.  He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring."  ~Hosea 6:3

Is your life feeling more like a desert wasteland?  Shoot me an e-mail and we'll talk.
