"And when you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, then rouse yourself, for then the LORD has gone out before you to strike down the army of the Philistines.”
-2 Samuel 5:24
I swear I heard the sound of marching above my head at least three times throughout the night last night. The first time it was slow, like an army advancing measure by measure with their shields linked. But the very last time, it was like a mighty army was running forward in perfect sync. I even felt the weight of their steps shaking my house and though it terrified me, it also made me smile in my sleep. But each time I woke up and listened, sure I would hear it this time... I couldn't hear it anymore.
I've thought about it and I live in a house on the top of one of the tallest hills in Waterbury. Praise God. I think they were headed past my house on their way into the valley.
