This beautiful mix of a variety of flowers would brighten any home, but even more so to know where it was taken.****
We spent 56 days on a Middle East photo shoot during Israel's wettest year in recorded history: 1992. Everything was different that year. The hillsides were green and covered with flowers even in the otherwise dry, desert locations.****
This shot was taken in the wilderness of Judaea somewhere near the area where John the Baptist was preaching the gospel of repentance. ®What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses.****
®But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.®****
We love the Lord because He can make of our dry, barren wilderness a fruitful garden.****
I always pictured John preaching in an arid, desert place, but what if they had had a very wet year during his ministry?
