"The nature of the universe is the nature of things that are. Now, things that are have kinship with things that are from the beginning. Further, this nature is styled Truth; and it is the first cause of all that is true."

Marcus Aurelius (121180)

Wind

      summer of 1975

 
Listen!  Listen!  Listen to the wind!
  Listen to it whistle through the trees!
  Listen to it rustle through the leaves!
 
 Feel!  Feel!  Feel the cool breeze of the wind!
  Cooling off the heat of day --
  Laughing at the cruel sun --
Creation is refreshed by the wind!
 
Look!  Look! Look at the dust!
  Dust dancing in the wind --
  The wind sweeping up the dust --
Creation is cleansed by the wind!
 
Where does the wind come from?
  Where does it seek its home?
  Who can create it?  Who can control it?
 
We cannot see the wind
  But we see what is swept by it.
We cannot touch the wind
  But we feel it refreshing our souls ...
 
The Wind!
  A likeness of the Spirit of God!

 Thought:

"The wind bloweth where it listeth,
  and thought hearest the sound thereof,
 but canst not tell hence it cometh, and whither it goeth:
   so is everyone that is born of the Spirit.
"
              John 3:8 (KJV)
