The desert and the parched land will be glad;
    the wilderness will rejoice and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom;
    it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy…
they will see the glory of the Lord,
    the splendor of our God.  —Isaiah 35:1–2

Don’t search for Jesus in far lands—He is not there. He is close to you. He is with you. Just keep the lamp burning and you will always see Him. Keep on filling the lamp with all these little drops of love, and you will see how sweet is the Lord you love.   —Mother Teresa, The Joy in Loving, 1996

My soul rejoices in the wilderness in bloom, in the lantern alight, in the bursting forth of the splendor of your presence, O Lord. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
