The wind is blowing tonight. Hard. Colder air is making its way down from the north and is washing away the spring-like day we had a few hours earlier.

Tonight feels kind of lonely as I listen. The night is quiet in my world except for the sound of the wind and some distant chimes.  The gusts can be loud though. They come and they go. Like the waves of the ocean.

I've heard it said it's an ill wind that blows no good.  Not sure exactly what that means but faith says good can come from the most difficult of circumstances. I guess the wind and our loneliness can cause a cleansing of sorts.  Especially as we re evaluate what is important and what is not. The way the wind would separate the chaff from the wheat so only the good stuff remained....

I am seeing that things beyond my control will not change one second before God says so.  The wind won't stop a moment before it's meant to. And my heart's longing will be filled in the proper time.  Such is life for all of us.

God's grace as always is sufficient.

“Love is not written on paper, for paper can be erased. Nor is it etched on stone, for stone can be broken. But it is inscribed on a heart and there it shall remain forever.”


  1. So beautiful, Kathi! Absolutely perfect.


  2. May all be well however the wind blows tonight for you and yours.

  3. I know what you mean about the wind sounding lonely. Hearing wind chimes in the distance does that to me too. Put on some good music and fix yourself a warm cup of hot chocolate or whatever you like to drink, and get under a cozy throw with a good book. When the sun shines again you'll feel better.

  4. Reading this made me want to be still. Cover up with blankets, drink something warm and just be quiet for a while. Lovely Kathi. Thanks for inviting my heart to some stillness.
