Dessert Thoughts

I've been approaching this dessert for some time now, but in the back of my mind, I've been trying to ignore it. It's not the heat that gets to me, it's the lack of relief.
This particular dessert seems to have no night, no shade. I know most desserts are quite cool at night, but this one has no mercy. I find myself having to enjoy my moments in spite of the beating sun. The other thing is that it seems to be angry. Angry that I haven't died yet. Angry that I'm still here. Even as I sleep the sun's rays wear my defenses, but still I rise in the morning only to pursue my destination.
It's easy to get lost in the dessert. If I lose my current path, I could be here for a long time. My only hope is to trust that God has given me a way out. He's already drawn the path for me. He shields me from the sun as I sleep. He's building me still.

I can see a horizon, but that may be a mirage. Another day or two should tell...i hope.
