Thirst in a dry and weary land….

I don’t know if you have ever been to a desert. I know I hadn’t till I first visited the Baja region of Mexico. It is a beautiful yet harsh landscape. It is a dry and dusty place where water is a precious commodity.  Visiting the Baja region gave me a better appreciation for the references to deserts and dry places in Scriptures.
Shown above  is the  playground area of Marquez de Leon, a village outside of La Paz. This swing captured my attention…alone and broken yet holding the potential for joy and laughter.
It is my prayer that we go not only to mend broken swings… but ultimately to mend broken hearts in a dry and weary land.
My prayer today for me and the people of Baja California Sur.
Invitation to the Thirsty

1 “Come, all you who are thirsty,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come, buy and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk
without money and without cost.
2 Why spend money on what is not bread,
and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
and you will delight in the richest of fare.
3 Give ear and come to me;
listen, that you may live.

  1. I love love love the analogy of the broken swing! It’s a very real yet allegorical reason of just why you are heading to Mexico….
