Here are a wide shot and closeup of the¬†latest windspinner addition to the garden. Sharon gave it to me for Father’s Day. All the vanes are attached to one pipe so they turn together. Even in a strong wind, it doesn’t madly spin like the windmill and the other spinner on the blueberry frame. This new one takes its time, and seems to methodically turn as it sees fit. It can be soothing to watch – you can glance at the windmill spinning too fast to distinguish the blades, then see these blue vanes regularly advancing around – in no hurry but still in action.

Could be a good example in the stormy wind’s of life, and a reminder for us to remember Who is still in control in those storms.

And he¬†(Jesus) awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” Mark 4:39-41 ESV
