Dirt farmers, despair!
Grape growers, wring your hands!
Lament the loss of wheat and barley.
All crops have failed.
Vineyards dried up,
fig trees withered,
Pomegranates, date palms, and apple trees—
deadwood everywhere!
And joy is dried up and withered
in the hearts of the people (Joel 1: 11-12 MSG)

...may the dryness in our hearts and lives be replaced with springs of wellness and joy. I took this picture at Victoria Island, Lagos. Note the blue skies behind the dry fig tree...a sign of freshness in the midst of dryness.
