“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 firstname.lastname@example.org - thanks!

“Dusty Roads” - Translated to Russian
C твоего раннего детства,
Я был рядом, в твоих сновиденьях.
Солнце вставало над горизонтом, а Я за тобой наблюдал
И давным-давно я принял решение,
Когда мои стопы были тяжелы,
А дороги – пыльны
Идти в Иерусалим.
Утром болела спина,
Я проснулся, лежа на земле,
И глаза болели, когда начали приходить люди посмотреть на меня
Люди были отовсюду…приходили почти каждый день.
Но я принял решение, шаг за шагом
Идти в Иерусалим –
За весь мир, за тех, кто меня полюбит
Ради тех, кто никогда, никогда
Меня не полюбит.
Я пошел ради них, и ради тебя.
О, я знаю все о тебе…
С твоего раннего детства
Я сделал все, чтобы о тебе позаботились.
И когда ты был не уверен,
Был обеспокоен… Я был рядом,
Всегда делал больше для тебя, чем ты представлял.
В саду, во время суда,
По дороге на Голгофу,
С каждым шагом, каждым дыханием, каждым мгновеньем,
Я принял решение
Отдать свою жизнь за тебя.
Я знаю, иногда не все гладко,
Тебе одиноко, страшно и хочется сложить руки
Но если никогда не посвятишь мне себя,
И не взглянешь на меня,
Знай, я принял решение,
Дал слово и сдержал обещание,
Решил пожертвовать всем ради тебя.
Когда ты проснулся сегодня,
Я был с тобой рядом,
И я принял решение давным-давно,
… Что всегда буду рядом с тобой.
Dusty Roads - By Randy Stahla Copyright 2011
Ever since you were little,
I was there while you slept,
And I watched over you as the sun rose,
Above the horizon.
And I made a decision a long time ago,
When my feet were heavy,
And the road was dusty,
To go to Jerusalem.
My back hurt in the morning,
When I woke up from sleeping on the ground,
And my eyes were tired,
As people started coming to see me,
From all around…almost every day.
But I made a decision,
Every step of the way,
To go to Jerusalem -
For the world, for those that would love me,
For those who would never, ever love me.
I went for them -
And I went for you.
Oh I know all about you…
Since you were little;
I’ve made sure that you were taken care of.
And when you were unaware,
When you worried, I was there,
Always doing more for you than you realized.
And before you were born I made a decision,
In the garden,
During the trial,
In front of Pilate,
On the way up the hill to Calvary,
Each step, every breath, every moment,
I made a decision…
To give my life for you.
I know you’ve been troubled at times,
And lonely, afraid, and discouraged sometimes.
But if you never give your heart to me,
Or give anything to me,
I want you to know that I made my decision,
Gave my word,
Kept my promises,
And chose to risk everything for you.
When you woke up this morning,
I was there.
And I made my decision long ago,
…I will always be there for you.
I know you don’t always agree with me.
I know sometimes I make you angry,
But I want to be your Lord and your friend.
I bought you with my own life.
…Not so I could hurt you or desert you,
But so that someday,
When the dusty roads and the tears are all gone,
We can be together forever…
