“The Wind blows where it wills”
Over the valley of hope and fear,
All the while bearing the Master’s precious seed
To His favorite vineyard in the hills.
Lovingly He has prepared the soil,
Softening the ground with the abundant rain
that is His grace,
Enriching the soil with His nourishing Word
And shaping the hill with tender care.
And all the while the seed is being held aloft
in the Wind’s supporting current
Until the Master Gardener recognizes the
perfect time and conditions,
And the seed is gently and lovingly laid into
the rich bed.
