Weather Report: “Brother Wind”
Wind is air in motion. It may be as welcoming as a gentle breeze or as fierce as a hurricane. We can’t see it. We can’t hold it in our hands. We can see the results of wind, whether that is clothes drying on the line, a sail boat pushed along the lake, or trees bending in a gustier wind.
“Wind is twisted and turned by the many obstacles it encounters along its way. In forests, trees block the wind and protect the forest floor from gusts. In big cities, towering skyscrapers funnel the wind into the narrow spaces between them, speeding it up. Much larger obstacles, like oceans or mountain ranges, mold the wind into large, predictable patterns that shape weather and climate across the planet.” Read more about what makes the wind.
Weather with You
Remember that old trick of using your finger as a weathervane? Conduct the experiment as you begin your Stroll.
Here's what to do:
"Praised by You, my Lord,
through Brother Wind,
And through the air, cloudy and serene,
and every kind of weather,
You give sustenance to Your Creatures." -- St. Francis of Assisi

Song: I Feel The Winds Of God Today by Steve Bell
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Each Wednesday we send out an inspirational message.
