Word #20. Breeze.
I’ve claimed the breeze as a tool and gift in my life.
Here are three simple ways it works to make my life better.
- The breeze is my entry point to the unseen world around me. When I remember to lift my face, close my eyes and feel the breeze, I remember my spirit. It is the beginning of a prayer.
- The breeze is the perfect opener for conversations with children. It begs the questions: Where does it come from? Where does it go? Do you believe in what you don’t see? Can you taste it? Smell it? Hear it?
- The breeze can end bickering in the backseat of a car. My little trick when my young children were yelling at each other in the car was simply to roll all the windows fully down and just drive without saying a word. This works best when you are on a road with a speed limit of 50 m.p.h. or more. Something about the jolt of a hefty breeze shifted them, too.
I hope you, too, claim the breeze.
(I thank my sister, Kirstin, for reminding me of the importance of this word.)
