Something to think about. Let us all ponder as we journey through this day. If God is Spirit and the foundational essence of who we are is spirit and breath and wind are ethereal. Are these then also part of who we are?
This image is not of a wind which can be harnessed for a wind farm. This wind has the breath of eternity.
In the story of creation……The Spirit hovered over the void. Breath and spoken Word.
Jesus breathed the Spirit on his disciples. At Pentecost the Fire of His Spirit was preceded by the sound of a rushing wind.
A thought……..Do we need this Wind of God – this unseen eternal force to blow on all Christian Believers so the flames and Passion of Pentecost never die?
Something to think about while we all, in simplicity, go about our day and share LOVE.
What a journey indeed is life if the One we follow is both LOVE, SPIRIT, and Breath of LIFE.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

If Jesus “breathe” it, I want it!! Without the Holy Spirit, I am merely a lost woman. Breathing in the sweet fragrance of Jesus. Good post Faye:) d
