Chasing the Wind

News. Faith. Nonsense.

Shelter in Place

I had to stay indoors this afternoon. It’s not unusual for me to be indoors on a Monday afternoon; what’s unusual is for the city to tell everybody to stay indoors.

We could see white smoke floating past our windows; something unintentional was released from a local industrial plant. The city told us to stay indoors; that’s the only reason I’m not suspecting some government mind-control substance being fogged on us. Or maybe the government was just trying to control the minds of the lawn-care workers which continued to work outdoors during the incident.

I read the article in the Houston Chronicle and was startled to see that the chemical was ethylene diamine. Here’s how the Chronicle described this chemical:

The chemical that leaked was reportedly ethylene diamine, which is widely used in paints and coolants, and is a food and cattle feed additive.

Does it disturb anybody else that cows are being fed some sort of paint chemical?

About Me

Michael, a sinner saved by grace, sharing what the good Lord has shared with me.

Solomon, in the book of Ecclesiastes, said, “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.”

If you’re not living for the glory of God, then what you’re doing is meaningless, no matter what it is. Living for God gives life meaning, and enjoying a “chasing after the wind” is a gift from God. I’m doing what I can to enjoy this gift daily.

Got questions? I’m not surprised. If you have any questions about Chasing the Wind, you can email me at
