RIDE THE WIND DAY

TL 8-23 RIDE THE WIND DAY

What do these activities have in common???

  • Sail boating
  • Motorcycle riding
  • Hang gliding
  • Parachuting
  • Kite flying
  • Flying in a plane

Do you give up???  Well, to do these things you need the wind!  Today is RIDE THE WIND DAY, a time to let yourself go and let the wind carry you away!  Are you afraid of heights?  I know, me too.  I don’t think parachuting is on my bucket list – let me check.  Nope – not there!  You can take as many risks as you like.  My two feet are staying on the ground I think.

Time is an old firmly rooted tree; we are the breeze rustling its leaves.  -Terri Guillemets

We don’t have many summer days left, so at least get outside for a while and let the breeze blow through your hair as you contemplate the fall months to come.  Close your eyes and imagine you are soaring high up in the sky.  Oh – I just made myself dizzy!

 If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it.  – Toni Morrison

It would be so neat to see this for real!  I’d love to take a trip to New Mexico just to watch those hot air balloons go up!  Maybe one day soon.  I’m guessing those balloons really ride the wind!

The book of Acts in the Bible compares God’s Holy Spirit to a mighty rushing wind.  If we will wait for the Spirit’s leading in our lives, it really will be the ride of our lives.  He will not steer us wrong because He wants only the best for His children.

Sister Bertrille really knew how to ride the wind back in 1967!!!

So as you make pinwheels or wind streamers today, think about the wind, the book of Acts and God’s Holy Spirit in your heart and life.  It really will be the ride of your life.  🙂
