The word March always makes me think of: bands marching in parades or military ranks. Let us not forget “March Madness” (the college basketball playoffs always in March) and, in the Bible, in Exodus, the Red Sea, where God told Moses to lift his staff, parting the waters. He led the Israelites out of captivity, and they marched hurriedly on dry ground with the Egyptians chasing them from behind.
When they passed safely through, Moses, once again, lifted the staff, and the waters filled, drowning the Egyptians! Pretty exciting march, don’t you think?
With God all things are possible.
I always enjoy everything about the Spring Season. As I travel around the state of
Texas, I see so many incredibly fun baby animals, leaping in pastures and farms,
with their new and clumsy shaky legs, following mama horse or cow with a
built in meal she will serve them.
The new, green grass and flowers are everywhere, popping up their leaves and
blooms, reaching for the sun. My bulbs started a month ago, wow. Couldn’t wait…
We have planted fresh, vibrant, herbs in containers on our deck facing the sun and
close by our doorway to the kitchen to liven-up our dishes as we include them in every meal we can.
Marching On can be fun, creative and bold, if necessary, especially with God, keep moving.
