While a friend of mine was driving through the plains of Oklahoma, he marveled at miles and miles of vast rolling plains of grasses and the strong winds that were making them sway. Then he noticed something else every few miles: trees in perfect rows. And he wondered why the trees grew in almost perfect rows. As he contemplated the phenomenon, he realized that when the trees seed, the seeds are blown in the direction of the wind and thus the trees are growing in the direction of the wind. The wind shapes the vegetation and literally shapes the landscape.
Our lives are guided by winds, too. Winds of change. Winds from storms. Gentle, refreshing winds. Winds of bitter cold. Winds that blow in the heat of summer. The breezes change us, challenge us, and sometimes restore us.
We become who we are as the winds blow across our lives, leaving us different than we were before. I enjoy the writing of C. JoyBell C.
I don’t believe in fighting the wind. You go and you fly with your wind. Let everyone else catch their own gusts of wind and let them fly with their own gusts of wind, and you go and you fly with yours.
Fly with your wind. Sounds to me like wise advice.

I must admit, I always hated the wind. The Lord is teaching me that the winds of change, when the Lord is the Source of the change, is to be embraced. I am learning to trust in the Lord with all my heart. An ongoing process:-) Blessings, Bernadette

Yes, I identify with your feelings about the winds of change. It is definitely a process to bend with the winds and not break.
