“Think about all that the wind is and all that it does. Where it goes. Where it comes from. The wind knows everything, for it travels everywhere, and it’s with us always. It endures. It feels. It speaks. Sometimes it whispers. Sometimes it rages. Give it a listen sometime. See what it tells you.”

“miracles didn’t fall out of the sky every day, and when they did, they usually went unrecognized—even by the people who desperately needed them.”
