"On our own, we can't make a desert into a garden. We can try to put a positive spin on our personal desert. We can try to reframe our desert. We can try to run away from the desert...None of that will bring us joy--maybe some happiness for a few seconds; maybe a few moments of self-satisfaction. But the joy of God can turn the dryness and lack and suffering of our personal Sahara into the Garden of Eden."
Rev Jennifer A G Layte
