Do you live in an area of the country that experiences the cold days of winter? If you do, by the time March arrives you will probably hear people grumbling about “enough snow” and how “tired” they are of “shoveling it and driving in it?” I hear them speak of spring every day and it begins my mid-February and by this time in early March it becomes a tune that so many people are singing.
Then, I wonder why they don’t understand that spring cannot come yet.
It’s not the appointed time for Spring. It is still “late winter” time. It is a rhythm that was set into place by the Creator when this universe was created by HIS hand. Yet, generations of humanity keep wishing for something different. Why?
Can we just take a moment to think about why people always long for things of the future? By doing that, we will fail to take the time to appreciate the day we live in. We are, in essence, wishing away the days of our life by not looking at the day we have, today. When we are “future minded” we miss out on some of the precious joys of life. The only thing we know for sure is that we are HERE, TODAY. If we constantly look forward to another time, another season, another year, another job, another spouse, another home, another activity, another life, we never experience the DAY in which we are living right now. Please consider this and don’t wish away your life. Appreciate and hold onto the special moments of today. Will you do that?
English Standard Version – Psalm 118:24 says:
This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
I share on this post some photos I took in the past few weeks, in which the beauty of the season resonates. When you learn to take the GIFT of the DAY you have been given, you will find the beauty and peace that is here – TODAY!
Take a walk outside today. No matter the weather. If it’s raining, take an umbrella. If it’s snowing, dress warm and put on your snow boots! If it’s sunny, then bask in the warmth.
Use all your SENSES today.
Can you FEEL this day?
Can you SEE this day?
Can you HEAR this day?
CAN you TOUCH this day?
Can you SMELL this day?
I think I will WRITE a POEM about this month, MARCH! I’ll post it in my next article.
