A Mighty rushing wind

Can't see it, taste it, or hold it

Only the coolness as it touches

My face and hair; all the while

Carrying me to a place I remember...

The memory burns so deep on that

Autumn day, so long ago,

Together walking with you at my side,

Fighting back the tears as you said goodbye...

I didn't understand then, but now I see

It was the best for you and me.

Though life has been good, still I don't know why

The wind takes me back to a time...

When the pain took by breath away.

And, "If Only's..." run around in my head of

Dreams unfulfilled...

Suddenly... I'm reminded

Of new dreams that took its place and as the

Wind dies down.... I am thankful that it's

Time to come back and into the arms of the

One who loves me with a love that will

Never die. No I will never let go...

No matter how strong the winds may blow.

He who began a good work in you

 “He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion” Philippians 1:6

Christ likeness is your eventual destination,

This journey will last a lifetime and involves:

Believing (through worship),

Belonging (through fellowship), and

Becoming (through discipleship).

Every day God wants you to become a little more like him:

“You have begun to live the new life, in which you are being made new
and are becoming like the One who made you.” Colossians 3:10
