Morning Thoughts

Morning Inspiration – Tumbling in the Wind

I have two plants I place on wire stands on my front porch. Every time a strong wind kicks up, they take a tumble. The entire stand falls over. Sigh. I thought the wind would just blow through the spindly legs of the stand with no problem. Now I’m thinking I need to purchase a new two in one shepherd’s hook to hold them.

This morning, a blustery wind is blowing outside in the colder temperature arriving after a day of rain. I have placed my plants in a safer location, on the ground, close to the house.

Sometimes those sudden strong winds blow in our lives, unexpected and unwanted, and we wobble under the force. There have been times when I’ve fallen, just like my plants. But like the plants, I had Someone who lifted me and put me in a safe place. That’s the peace of being in Christ.

Lifting my cup of tea with a grateful heart for the gift of this new day and the grace of God.
