God Chimes In


There are few things as soothing and peaceful as the wind blowing through glass chimes. I must have over fifteen in my yard and I still don’t think it’s enough. They serenade me night and day.

I have been fascinated by wind chimes my entire life starting with my grandmother and mother who loved to hear their cheery symphonic sounds. Like the softness of a bird’s song, a wind chime creates the loveliest melodies without effort and using only the slightest blush of wind.

I like to think of my life the same way. I move through this world and I share sweet-sounding words which hopefully are pleasant and kind and pleasing to the ear. A soft word, a kind comment and when needed, a breath of condolence.

We often repeat…”Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace” and I believe it to be so. Let us be soothing, comforting and melodious as we share the love of Christ with those we meet.

“The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.” John 3:8
