Why Desert Rain?

If you live in the desert long enough you become drawn to water.

Drawn to that earthy smell hanging in the air, to the sheen on the rocks, and the steady staccato drumming on your roof.

Drawn to the diamond drops glistening on the creosote bush and dripping off your eaves.

Drawn to the glorious headlong rush of water in the wash.

We get less than 10 inches of rain a year in the Desert Southwest. So, unless it’s a summer deluge (or that rare winter drenching) when it rains around here, we run out in it, lift up our faces to the sky and smile. This is our gift.

Desert rain is the blessing we wait for.

As water is life to the desert, so Christ is the wellspring of our life. He fills and fulfills to overflowing.


Desert rain embodies the hope I seek, and the peace I crave.

With that in mind, I created this blog, Desert Rain.

Desert Rain is a lifestyle blog where the style is always Christ and the life we live is continually watered be the Word of God.

Because whether we live in the mountains, at the coast, on the plains, or in the tropics, without God leading us, we all wander in our own private desert—void of understanding, lacking in peace, withering away for want of righteousness and truth.

I have often felt like a single drop of rain on the desert floor, isolated and unnoticed. 

But even though the land surrounding me is arid, (like my day-to-day circumstances), I know my heart must stay moist, saturated with the Spirit of Truth.

Will you join me? Let us get our feet wet in the Living Water. Let us splash in the puddles with child-like joy. Let us turn up our faces,


  . . .for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12
