Endurance Through Drought

by Joyce Friend

As people dream about a White Christmas,
I was dreaming about a green cactus garden.

My thoughts were the seeds…

I have known despair.
I value hope.

During the drought in Cape Town, I started to re-arrange my garden with different colour stones, pots and cacti.

About three weeks back the Lord opened the sluices of Heaven and I was dancing in the rain.

I have tasted frustration.
I value fulfilment.

Today I feel like a woman of worth… loving my garden.
