The desert

I will lead you into the desert, and there I will speak to your heart.–Hosea 2:14

Tomorrow I will be traveling to Tempe, Arizona to visit my sister and brother-in-law. I’m grateful to be invited to their home for a week. It’ll be nice to be away from the snow and cold for a week. There is something mystical about Arizona and the Sonoran Desert. I’ll be able to take long walks and smell the citrus that grows on the trees that surround their yard and those of their neighbors. I hope to visit the Franciscan Renewal Center while I’m there and perhaps get to Chapel of the Holy Cross in Sedona.
