Skies and Sighs

Sky High Sighs

How many times can she sigh sky high?

Okay that’s just silly 

This must be some “parboiled poetry”

Truly

Really

Why do my stupid poems make me laugh?

Especially when this car’s out of gas?

Must be the fumes.

September Wind

It swept through her hair like a hurricane 

Finally she had the wind to blame 

For the mess that is her glorious mane

It REALLY was REALLY windy today.

Born of the Spirit

“The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

John 3:8

My Hair Really is a Mess Right Now – Cause and Effect. 😀

“Nicodemus had objected to the doctrine because he did not understand how it could be. Jesus shows him that he ought not to reject it on that account, for he constantly believed things quite as difficult. It might appear incomprehensible, but it was to be judged of by its effects. As in this case of the wind, the effects were seen, the sound was heard, important changes were produced by it, trees and clouds were moved, yet the wind is not seen, nor do we know whence it comes, nor by what laws it is governed; so it is with the operations of the Spirit. We see the changes produced. Men just now sinful become holy; the thoughtless become serious; the licentious become pure; the vicious, moral; the moral, religious; the prayerless, prayerful; the rebellious and obstinate, meek, and mild, and gentle. When we see such changes, we ought no more to doubt that they are produced by some cause – by some mighty agent, than when we see the trees moved, or the waters of the ocean piled on heaps, or feet the cooling effects of a summer’s breeze.”

  1. Lately, I have been journaling about the wind and bible verses. I like the bible commentary on John – the effect of the Spirit, like the wind, is seeing the change produced. Thanks! 😊 Your poems made me smile.

    1. 😃 Yes, it’s a good verse and commentary. I didn’t enjoy the sighing, but it lead to poetry that cheered me up and Bible verse and commentary that inspired me. He turned my sighing to inspiring. 😃
