Where the Wind Begins

Driving home from Frederick I noticed the Oklahoma wind was blowing again. I noticed it because of the way the trees were yeilding to the passing of the wind. I wondered. Where does the wind begin? There must be a point where the wind is ahead of everything else. No wind/wind. What was the leading edge of the wind. Have you ever seen it? Have you ever been standing somewhere and the wind came sweeping down?
"Wind is caused by air flowing from high pressure to low pressure. It's direction is influenced by the earth's rotation."

When my dear Uncle Beenie, (Marion) died in July we were gathered a the gravesite in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It was very hot and very humid and the air seemed completely still. The minister was speaking and under the tent all of us were so very hot and I worried about my Aunt Gene and my Mom and Aunt Kat and Aunt Dot with the air so still and hot. Then, from somewhere a cool breeze came swooping through the tent. Ah. It was amazing. We were cooled down so perfectly. We are going to be ok. In just a few seconds a second swoop of wind came through. I thought, "Thank you Uncle Beenie, we needed that!" I looked to my cousins, his kids, who looked at each other smiling and said to one another..Daddy... They thought it too. It was a gift from heaven twice given.
That was the wind's beginning. Imagine the winds first over the earth. The Spirit of God that swept down across the earth. That Spirit that still sweeps and bring energy and life. That breath of God that swept over the waters.
Proverbs 1:6 The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.

"Ah but we might as well try and catch the wind." Donovan

Where does it begin? Watch for it. Be ready when you are outside to feel it start...just that the first breath of a newborn child.
