Wind is not unusual in Texas, from gentle breezes to devastating tornadoes. But this week we have wind advisories, which means not tornado strength but strong enough to blow over lawn furniture and cancel airline flights. For me, that usually means picking up limbs from the many trees in my yard. As the wind whips around my house, whirling the wind chimes on my porch into a frenzy, I think of the Holy Spirit, which is described as like wind. The Holy Spirit gently comforts and guides us, but he is also stronger than anything we can imagine possible of Texas wind. Not only is he pictured as a dove in the Scriptures, he also appears as flames of fire. He is God!
