He said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31

Taken from “A Blossom in the Desert: Reflections of Faith in the Art and Writings of Lilias Trotter”, compiled and edited by Miriam Huffman Rockness.

Desert Teaching

…And then the desert hills took on their pink and blue afternoon lights and shadows. One moment’s glory of sunset flashed out between the showers, after we got in, shading the desert from the mauve of the distant hills to the flame color of the cliffs of the riverbed in the foreground—a chord of color that is simply unpaintable and indescribable and unimaginable.

Oh, the desert is lovely in its restfulness. The great brooding stillness over and through everything is so full of God. One does not wonder that He used to take His people out into the wilderness to teach them.
