in the desert in the desert death comes during the fullness of day when we would think we are safe © 2010 Terri Stewart Lenten Reflection Week 5, Day 2: The angel brought me, Ezekiel, back to the entrance of the temple of the LORD, and I saw water flowing out from beneath the threshold of the temple toward the east, for the façade of the temple was toward the east; the water flowed down from the right side of the temple, south of the altar. Then he brought me to the bank of the river, where he had me sit. Along the bank of the river I saw very many trees on both sides.
