Produced by National Geographic, the full-length film “March of the Penguins” was released in theaters in September 2005. iSissy2, along with a friend in Florida and I arrived for an 11:55 a.m. matinee wearing black and white walking with a waddle from the car to our seats. [You can only do that when iSissy2 is around – she’s crazy! She thinks up these things!]
The Emperor Penguin in the Antarctica is an amazing testimony to God’s majesty and His creativity. How can a creature – the Emperor Penguin – be a bird with feathers, yet it swims in the ocean and lives on land that is only ice and has the harshest winter known to planet Earth? How can these creatures be so magnificent, yet adorable and funny at the same time? How can instinct drive them to march 70 miles from all over the Antarctica to their nesting ground to arrive within days — or hours — of each other? Then how can they go without food for months while caring for their single egg and their new baby? How can all of this happen year after year, decade after decade without the knowledge of man? How much more in God’s infinite universe do we not know or understand? A LOT! God is amazing!
“How many are your works, O Lord!
In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number –living things large and small.
I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.”
Psalm 104:24-25, 33
