Walk In The GardenWe walked through the Garden

In the cool of the day,

Following the trail of the Watershed

Under the shade of trees

With leaves that sing

and branches that dance with the breeze’s sway,

Hand in hand

Carrying casual chat and play

with our Daily Bread;

In this moment

My child’s love and devotion

Blessed my heart

And the Lord

Who was walking with us spoke,

“Son, this is how it was in My Garden;

In the Beginning,

Before the world fell apart.”

Do not despair for what has been lost; but rejoice for what has been redeemed and is being made new!!! Your Heavenly Father wants to walk with you today; all you need to do is take His hand. = >

Colossians 1:

19 For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through the blood of His cross.

Corinthians 5: 18

All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:

WORDS by B.C. Lamb
ILLUSTRATIONS by Kiara Skye Lamb

desert1

Every evening

after bedtime stories and sleep tight prayers,

after Eskimo and butterfly kisses,

one last hug and the final tuck

So begin the nightly trips

of fleeting tiptoes down the stairs

sneaking to the kitchen sink;

and upon the consistent history

of this aqueous mystery

my mind began to ponder and think.

 

desert2

So I caught the water wranglers in the act

and I asked my darling daughters,

“Why do you keep sneaking out of bed

to get a drink?”

Looking up ever so innocent and sweet

they spoke in unison,

“There’s a desert in our room, Daddy!”

 

desert3

KIARA: “We get thirsty from the heat.

There is no comfort in our blankets

and we swelter under the sheet,

they are like the sands of the Sahara

scorching our bodies

and burning our feet!”

 

desert4

KeiLynn: “We have to water our camels

that help us traverse the Gobi-like dunes;

they’re parched by the sandstorms

and running on fumes.”

 

desert5

KIARA: “Death Valley resides beside my pillow

where we were chased by a wiley Coyote

and made friends with a furrowed armadillo;

and after she helped us escape the treacherous nip,

we just had to repay her with a kindly sip.”

 

desert6

KeiLynn: “There’s a cactus in the corner

– a Joshua Tree, I think;

it was looking rather wilty

so we just had to get the poor thing a drink.”

 

desert7

KIARA: “We were being monitored by lizards

that claimed to be Outback wizards

that couldn’t perform or do magic tricks

without a few laps and licks;

and they promised they’d be chum

if we would ‘Goanna’ get them some.”

 

desert8

KeiLynn: “There were buzzards buzzing our headboard

waking us up every time we dozed or snored;

at last we made a deal

and they agreed to give up their leverage

in exchange for a refreshing beverage.”

desert9

KIARA: “A sidewinder sideswiped our caravan

making us cross our fingers and toes

as he hissed and emptied our canteens,

then he wound around the bends

leaving us to fetch more precious liquid for our friends.”

 

desert10

At last I laughed and said,

“This desert is unfit!

Perhaps I can spruce it up a bit.”

 

I opened the window

and turned on the fan.

Then I put a small jug of water by the bed.

 

I called the girls

and explained as I was tucking them in,

“The sun is down

so it is nice and cool in the desert.

Your bed is an oasis and this jug is your watering hole.

If you get out of bed one more time

I’ll have to discipline you for being naughty.”

 

 

desert11

With sheepish grins

both girls cried out,

“But Daddy,

………now we have to go potty!”
