A Life Full Of Clutter

On my walk this morning I listened to the wind blowing roughly through the trees, rattling the branches, tossing nuts and leaves down, this was no gentle breeze.

The sticks and leaves all rushed before it, nothing could stand in its way, the sound of its rushing voice alone could be heard, this morning only it would have its say.

I felt its force as it brushed me by, clearing the way before my feet, and when it was gone, I looked down the way, at a clean and freshly swept street.

It reminded me so of my life before I met and came to know you, a life full of clutter, like leaves and sticks on the ground, an untidy mess that I had strewn.

Bits of dreams that I had given up on, and new starts that never came to be, my life was filled with the unfinished business of those who knew they weren't free.

I tried and I failed and tossed opportunities away, began but did not complete; a thousand beginnings but no middle nor ending, with failure my life was replete.

Then I met Jesus when I was feeling my lowest, He came like a gentle breeze
tapping on my heart....and He asked to come in, to be with me always, He'd
change my life and we'd never be apart.

I had no faith and just a tiny flicker of hope, that Jesus just might be the One, who could take and bring order and peace to my heart, this chaos my life had become.

So I welcomed Him in and oh, what miracles He wrought, His wind of forgiveness blew through my heart, and it swept away all the clutter and strife, giving me a fresh new start.

Into this clean new heart a steady wind blew, full of His love and grace, and filled me up with hope and peace, I wasn't just repaired, my heart was a brand new place.

Every now and then a gentle breeze touched my face, reminding me that with Him dreams could come true, and to not be afraid to bring them to Him, to see what His will would do.

God already knew the desire of my heart, the one thing I longed to be true, and when I placed that dream in His hands, He smiled and He brought me to you.

What a wonderful day, full of sunshine and grace, when God poured out this gift from above, for when we met, I knew in my heart, that God had just given me love.

Now every day I feel the breeze blowing gently on my face, and know it's God's reminder that He is there, and that He's given us each to one another; with a gift of love to forever share.

Ya know, it's one thing for you two to be such a blessing to one another, but you graciously share that gift with the world. And, via you two, the Lord encourages us all to love so tenderly.

Amen, Joyce! I love wind, Trish. Most people think I'm crazy, but it's always been like God dancing all around me, reminding me by His touch, of His love for me. Now, after reading your sweet words, wind will always give me one look into my Father's face.

Oh this blessed me! I love wind, it's like God's pure breathe of life blowing on and through me!

Can any man be more blessed than I? You, my precious wife, have given me a daily touch of what it is to be loved by a “God Gift”…my wife. Thank you my Trish for your sweet love. Always yours, my precious…always!
