When I woke up this morning, I heard a bell ringing. I noticed the furnace was running so I thought maybe it was something with the furnace. My husband was in the shower, so I thought perhaps it was something with the water. As I was fixing my husband’s lunch (a rarity), I kept hearing this ringing. Not knowing the weather outside, I eventually realized it was my chimes on the back porch being blown about by the wind.
The wind – not visible, but very effective. It can take a couple of inches of snow and create a blocked driveway, it can create energy, and it can cause the peaceful and joyful sound of chimes. We usually don’t even notice the wind, but rather notice its results.
If the wind blew around in your life or organization, what would change? Would it create a roadblock, causing you to change direction or shovel your way through a tough spot? Would it create energy in an otherwise static environment? Would it bring the melodic sound of a ringing chime?
We could all use a little wind in our lives. Something to shake us up, make us think differently, act differently, go a different route, produce different results. Perhaps it would just bring the musical sound of peace and joy.
