The Wind Takes My Breath Away

The wind, this morning, is roaring like a lion. Fierce and unrelenting.

The entire house is heaving against the force, bracing against the assault.

Walking the dog in this wind is no easy feat.

He is getting pushed down the yard.

Hair blowing wild. The wind taking my breath away.

Barren trees bending low.

Springtime is windy.

Today I am thankful for: 

* wind that dries up mud

* peaceful time alone in the early morning

* a cold glass of green tea

* a slow day

* paws padding on the floor

* hearing my son on the radio

* days closer to his graduation

* looking forward to family visiting

* the week before Easter

* Jesus, God’s only Son

* His sacrifice for me
