“Drifting Sand” Poem...
“Bring You Flowers” is a new page in the Galaxy Cafe section. This page is dedicated to our troops & their families, and is meant to honor those who are serving our country. “Bring You Flowers” is a song written and performed by Kristen Scott, a new artist on DesertSnow. The song is about a young woman who lost her husband in the war in Afghanistan, and is now raising her son alone. This song is based on a true story. As we celebrate the holidays, please remember our troops and their families in your prayers and in your gifts, whatever you are able to do for them.
For God so loved each and every person throughout all ages that he sent his only Son (a Prince) to this world as a homeless man (a Pauper)...that whoever would believe that he really is a Prince and accept his death (as payment for the things they have done wrong), they would not lose themselves (die) but inherit the true riches (that will never fade), and live forever with God...John 3:16“The foxes have their dens, and the birds have their nests, but I, the Messiah (Jesus Christ) do not have a place to lay my head.” Matthew 8:20
The Galaxy Cafe has “food for the soul,” and includes special features about musicians around the world. As time goes on, more artists will be added. During the holiday season, new articles, videos, and art will be added. I hope you enjoy these pages. If there is something you would like to see in this section, especially with regard to our troops and their families, please send us an email at email@example.com - thanks!

This Christmas we remember the loss of two special people...
Two students at Colorado State University took their own lives recently. Now, people must pick up the pieces of their lives and move on.
Impression without expression = depression.
Talk about what happened with your friends, with people who can help. No one can stand alone. No one can bear the burden alone. Tell those in your circle how you feel. And if someone is talking about their feelings, listen. You may save their life.
A beautiful mind is like a shield
And will protect you on life’s battle field
If there is anything good, anything at all, think upon those things. Write letters to the person you lost, and share it with a friend.
Form the “Turtle.” In ancient Rome, soldiers would place their shields over their heads and walk close together. Then when flaming arrows or rocks fell down on them, the overhead “shell” would protect them. But they had to stay together and walk as one unit. In the same way, walk close with your friends - don’t take their safety for granted.
Read the poetry on this site, and look at the pictures of heaven. Close your eyes, and let those images stick in your mind. Let them give you hope.
Ask someone who is older and wiser to listen.Many people have been through world wars, the Great Depression, terrible plagues like Polio and other diseases, etc.; ask them how they survived, how they see things now as they look back. Use them as your “time machine,” and take a trip back into their past as they describe what they went through. Read biographies of inspiring people who didn’t give up in spite of terrible tragedy or conditions.
