I love the imagery from the beginning of Genesis.
I believe the wind of God, the Holy Spirit
was present before the beginning of creation
and is ever present beyond the end.
The wind is in the breath. When we are born,
the doctor gives us a little smack to help us along
in claiming our first breath. The breath of God.
That wind from God, is the Holy spirit and sustains life.
No matter who we are, where we are born
or how big our bank account, we share
the same wind from God.
Today is Father’s Day, I thought it fitting
to tell you something of my father,
who passed into a yet larger room
just eight years ago.
My father was a great man,
loyal son, loving father and husband.
He was a friend to many, an icon
and a true character.
