Hello friends! I don’t know about you, but I am so happy that Spring Time is almost here.  I just love the month of March! And why do I love the month of March? Two reasons! Reason number one: Spring Time! I just love Spring Time! Seeing the flowers and the trees begin to bloom and blossom it makes me think of the following Christian hymn, “How Great Thou Art.” God made the valleys, How Great Thou Art, God made the flowers, trees and plants, How Great Thou Art! And when you and I look up and gaze at the heavens we will see the beautiful blue sky.  We will see the clouds that bring the earth its rain and snow.  Each snow flake is different and each cloud is different with its shape and size.

Mankind was made to scan the skies. And when we scan the skies and gaze at the heavens, the Bible says in Psalm 19 the heavens it declares the glory of God. The heavens declaring the glory of God is not a one-time thing.  The heavens are declaring the glory of God continually. Every moment, every second, every hour and every day the heavens continually declare the glory of God.  The heavens continually give testimony to God as the creator. The shooting stars we see at night declare the glory of God.  The moon we see at night declares the glory of God. I love what Adrian Rogers says, “We see in Genesis 1:1 that God stood upon the platform of nothing and spoke a world into existence. We see in nature that God has put Himself on display so that all can see.  Nature is God’s theater show casing His glory.”  Each spring, I am reminder how great our God is and in awe of His Glory!!

And now the second reason why I love spring: March Madness is almost here.  I love watching the college basketball tournament every year on TV.  There is no doubt about it that March is my favorite month for sports.

We have many activities planned during the month of March at Long’s Chapel. Please refer to the church bulletin, church Facebook page and website for all upcoming activities that you don’t want to miss!

If you have no church home we would love for you to join us on Sunday mornings at Long’s Chapel Christian Church for worship at: 8:30 a.m. (contemporary) or 11:00 a.m. (traditional). Your presence would truly bless us!

Blessings, RJ
