Daily Meditation for March 12, 2024

“Marching.” What does this word bring to mind? Does it immediately recall what a troop of military does when on duty? Does it recall watching a parade moving down the street in perfect order? Or does it recall an episode when one is told to, “March with the music”? Maybe it could help one recall how life moves on, how we need to participate in what life brings, or how moving with others is the best way one can bring harmony and peace. One can add beauty to the march by living the best one can, remembering to express gratitude and passing on a smile or a word of encouragement. Our mission this month might be to pay particular attention to marching forward every day. With God’s grace, we march together on our way to holiness.
