The Living Desert

By Hazel Holland

I painted this impressionistic watercolor as I remembered how glorious sunsets can be in the desert after it has rained.  Pools of cool water suddenly cover the once parched ground.  Desert streams flow amongst the spring flowers offering them a much needed drink.  Everything seems brighter and more beautiful.  Life springs forth in the desert after it is washed by rain.

So do the desert places in my life.  The dry and parched ground of my heart becomes softened.  What once seemed dead becomes alive.  New life springs forth as I drink daily from this Oasis in the desert... this Living Water that will never run dry. ♥
