I am Arabah.
Dry

Avoided
Desert
Light Shining in Darkness
Spirit Poured Out

Garden
of God
I am Arabah.

It is the dead He raises to life, the barren and dry He pours out upon, the weak and wounded He lifts up,

It is the Arabah that becomes the showcase of His glory (Isaiah 35:1-2),

In addition to being Arabah, I am wife to Loving Husband, mom to 4 ~both biological and adopted~, missionary, nature lover and Jesus freak

Welcome to my online journal…..

    Your writing is very deep and thought provoking. Many of us can relate to your thoughts, but most of us can not express them in words. You have a gift.
    I am very moved by your heart dealing with your adopted child. One day she will know the gift you are to her. What a difference you are already making in her. May God bless you and give you the wisdom you need for the day. I am always interested in the adoption experiences as I would be open to inviting another precious one in. (we have 3 of our own).My husband is not so sure of the process, so I don’t push – waiting on God to complete His plan if it is meant to be.
    Thanks for writing and sharing, may you be covered in His blessings today.
    Kathy
