He creates the wind

High winds arrived the other night. And as I settled into bed, the wind beat against our house: the massive, creak-the-house, heaving sort of wind that to me is just a little scary. I would guess that Wednesday night's winds were nearly as fierce as those of last September.

As day broke, we peeked out to check for damage. Those winds packed a wallop, all right, taking down a 50-foot pine tree out back.

I find the realness of God in such a storm. He breathes his power through the wind and I am awed by it.

He who forms the mountains,
creates the wind,
and reveals his thoughts to man,
he who turns dawn to darkness,
and treads the high places of the earth --
the Lord God Almighty is his name.

Amos 4:13
