Cleansing Wind

Biking wildly down the road, wind on your face, worries behind

Standing at the turbulent shore, waves crashing, wind howling

Skate edges find ice, flying easily, cold fresh wind on your face

Holding on to balance atop a tall mountain, wind buffeting, mind cleared

The cleansing wind

Letting the Wind Hold You Up

There have been many memorable moments in our Ireland journeys where the wind felt like it was literally holding us up, pushing us along, carrying us on the distinctive Irish scent of salt air and green fields.  Moments that took your breath away, pushed all the worry far from mind.

The beauty of an isolated windswept beach, County Kerry.

Sometimes, the wind that feels like it could knock you down, actually holds you up.  And rewards you with beauty and clarity unknown before.

“He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.  He makes winds his messengers.” -Psalm 104:3b, 4a

Lean into the wind.  He will hold you up.  Love, Lisa
