Dessert Rose

The dessert rose is a lovely plant. So stunning is its thick trunk, green leaf and star shaped flower most gardeners recommend showcasing this plant rather than tucking it in with the other garden foliage. The dessert rose originated near the Sahara Dessert. This flower loves the heat and is drought resistant.

The human heart is like a lily of the valley, the dessert rose, a garden of splendor. Just like a garden, the human heart needs special care and attention. Not every heart is exactly the same. Some need Continue reading

Gardener of Heart

When someone discovers and falls in love with God they are like a new garden. A seed has been sown that has sprouted something. But just like a garden, they must be showered with love.

It runs in close competition with the single year myself and my family had to live homeless moving from hotel to hotel waiting for God to move in an impossible situation. The homeless thing ended with us moving from a hotel directly to Continue reading

Something Beautiful

What do the caterpillar and bumble bee have in common?

Neither knows how extraordinary they could be. Sometimes the same it true for you and for me. We never see ourselves quite as we should. Either too grand or not so good.

All of life has something beautiful that can Continue reading
