Blowing Leaves!

The wind blows south, and then turns north.  Around and around it goes, blowing in circles.  Ecc. 1:6  NLT

I haven’t raked the leaves yet.   And…a few days ago a right wind came up and blew my leaves in my neighbors yard!    Fine with me!   They have a guy with a mower and bagger that does their lawn!     But when I left the house this morning my neighbors yard was clean… where did those leaves go?   Yep, a bad wind blew them right back in my yard again.   Bad wind!   Now, I have my leaves and my neighbors leaves to rake.  But wait!   Tomorrow may bring another good wind and then… maybe the leaves will be in the yard across the street.

Beloved, no matter which way the wind blows, and no matter how long you wait… someone is going to have to clean up this mess!   Why not you???     If you have a project that needs to be done today… just take a deep breath.. get a fresh wind and … get started?!   The people around you will appreciate it.    Besides, we are to obey the command that says, “Love thy neighbor”!    That doesn’t include blowing the leaves into their yard… does it???
