A Rose in Autumn

Autumn-Rose.jpg

Standing as tall as she can

She stretches her neck towards the sun

Petals showing their age but still retaining color of blushes

Lightly lined and becoming dry

She is happy to be there, in the garden, in the sun, in the green

Feeling the touch of the wind and the rain on her skin

Still alive and lovely and glad to be

Fresh Wind

Those who know me know that I love the wind.  Cleansing, refreshing, roaring, invigorating wind.

New starts and reinvigorated beginnings feel like fresh wind.  I am so thankful that God gives us that shot in the arm just when we need it.  “The wind blows wherever it pleases.  You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going.  So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”  ~Jesus, John 3:8
