“Coyote Falls” Escalante National Monument, Utah
Photographer – Joshua Cripps
A barren desert it seems
is just as much a mirage
as the forest and streams.
The sandy terrain and dried out rock
are places of solace within God’s Heart.
Across the rock the waters flow
etching a paradise where no one goes.
Each droplet of God’s nourishment
is without scarcity
within the divine love
that is our sanctity.
In the greens that grow
and the trees that sway,
there is a soulful place for God to play.
Spirit sits and waits for you and I today.
To hike the canyon high and low,
to tread the dried up river bed,
to trust and believe,
in the beautiful scene.
Within life’s journey,
in the heat of the day,
and the dryness
of this sacred land,
is a desert so lush
within the heart of man.

This was first posted more than a year ago. As I have traveled these last five years I found myself treading the dried up river bed searching for the dessert so lush. That dessert so lush is always where Spirit is…The lushness and beauty of our human life is held within God’s love. I choose today to leave the desert to join God in the lush blessings of life. I choose to see all that is good…all that is God!
