Another rather sad and disturbing indication of the severity of the current drought that is ravaging the countryside and farms of Australia.

Many times life can seem like a thirsty barren land…
As though all our hopes and dreams,
Are little more than rusty grains of sand.
Parched by disappointment time and time again…
Without hope life is but a severe drought,
That seems to have no end.
Like clouds looming on the horizon withholding their rain…
So too, unless we let go of our past,
We can never be healed from all our pain.
Apart from God we are as trees without water,
Destined too whither and die…
For God is the source of our eternal hope,
Through whom all life is meant to thrive!
