THAT'S WHAT THE WIND IS FOR

A few years ago I planted a row of spruce pines to the east of our home for a couple of reasons. One to keep the dust from a neighboring field from blowing onto our house. The other reason was to keep the wind down.

They were just about 3 feet high when I bought them, because the smaller the tree, the smaller the price. It was early Spring and the March, and the wind was really aggressive. To keep them from blowing over I drove wooden stakes beside them and tied them up with string. I returned to the Garden Center where I bought them to pick up some other shrubbery and told the salesman I had to stake those spruce pines up because of the wind blowing them over. He said that they didn't need to be supported by a wooden stake because the roots will not take hold and stand on their own with support. He also said, that is what the March wind is for: so that it will make them strong and healthy.

The moment he said that I thought about Psalm 1.
