note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th


The past few days, I've been drawn to the concept of wind. It seems like God keeps bringing it up, whether it's in song lyrics, Bible verses, or blog posts. It's really fascinating what I've found.

He [God] let loose the east wind from the heavens and led forth the south wind by his power. -Psalm 78:26

Let all that I am praise the Lord.
   O Lord my God, how great you are!
      You are robed with honor and majesty.
   You are dressed in a robe of light.
   You stretch out the starry curtain of the heavens;
   you lay out the rafters of your home in the rain clouds.
   You make the clouds your chariot;
      you ride upon the wings of the wind.
 The winds are your messengers;
      flames of fire are your servants.
 - Psalm 104:1-4 (the rest of this chapter is really interesting!)

I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind. -Ecclesiastes 1:14

The concept of wind has really struck me. Not only has the weather been weird over here lately, but I've seen the significance and the intense mystery of the wind. The wind is not only incredibly strong, but it's also amazingly gentle. The awesome thing is, it can be both these things at the same time. Beautiful...and strong. There are so many things about wind that remind me of God, and He seems to be reminding me lately. Coincidence? I think not.

These are just some random, scattered thoughts, but I'd like to sum this post up with one thing I've come to realize this week.

God is like the wind.

I can't see Him, but He's there.


  1. Ooh, Kylie! I like how you said that. :)

    I was just wondering, if I could edit the template you have on your HSB?

    Love & Hugs, Melian

  2. Ah, you can't see the actual wind, but you can see evidence of it! Just as it is with our Lord. We know he's there, we can see him moving in our lives!
