Wind - Creating in Faith

Wind - Creating in Faith

Creating in Faith bookmark holder

I am like the gentle breeze blowing the dandelion stalks
taking them to their new destination and home. 
I move through the trees rustling melodies each singing their own song,
I gently tug at the clinging leaves, ochre, reds and golden browns.

I am the icy winds rushing through the roof tops,
it’s time to rest a while, dream my dreams of tomorrow,
wrapped up warm, there is a different crew, time for the layers
and don’t forget your ear muffs and snow boots!

I blow away the fallen leaves, time for a spring clean,
can you hear my new song of fresh beginnings whistling
as I breathe new life, whisperings of new growth. 

We dance again among the palm trees swaying as I greet you on the beaches,
warm currents carefully caressing your skin,
winter long forgotten enjoying the harvest.

But I am unpredictable
I can soar across the oceans
and bring tales of devastation to everything in my path,
bringing the thrashing waves
while I spread the forest fires, blazing in defiance. 
I can uproot trees and send buildings to their destination of rubble. 
I come by many names, breeze, wind, gale, tornado and hurricane
each variation in degree,
in its season,
in and out of harmony with the earth.

 Yes I can bring much pain in the flash of a moment and in the next
I remind you of summers filled with aromas, perfumed flowers and
 tomorrows that have yet to come
new growth, new life, new grace.

He who dwells in the shelter of the most High 
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty...Psalm 91:1

But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind James 1:6

I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart Psalm 40:8
