I have big hopes for you, March!

Our January and February church meetings were cancelled due to the weather.  Tomorrow in church we’ll have to decide if we’ll have the March meeting at the regularly scheduled time on Tuesday.  Sunday evening into Monday evening we’re expecting everything the post office used to say never stopped them including darkness of night.  They’re calling for (in order) freezing rain, 5+ inches of snow, and then sleet.  Tuesday’s high is not supposed to get above freezing.  And our board is made up almost entirely of people aged 55 and up, many of whom don’t need to be out when it’s snowy, icy, and dark.

As of right now, March doesn’t look any different than December, January, and February.  But I know it is different.  People will begin tilling the ground for gardens.  People will be buying outdoor porch furniture.  People will be planning outdoor improvements.  And by the end of March, this constant barrage of snow will be in our rear view mirror.

March is full of hope and promise.  Being a follower of Jesus is like March.  While it’s not always easy and it’s definitely unpredictable, it is always full of hope.  There’s nothing else like it.  Hello March.  I’m excited to see what you have for me.  I have a lot of hope.

    Wow, that must be a little discouraging. Maybe live stream your sermon from home when you can’t meet. Perhaps a blog service on your wordpress site. Where there is a will…

    • OK – to be clear, I meant church board meetings were cancelled. We didn’t miss a beat on Sunday morning worship.

        Whew, I need to slow down when I read. I’m in the south, if we had that kind of weather the whole state would shut down.
        Still, blog meetings with the board using comments, might keep the discussions short. 🙂
