Here we go again: Daylight Savings Time 2023

here we go

I was ready for it! I set all our clocks ahead, and even got myself settled in bed at a reasonable hour. 

But, even then, I managed to head to church sans cellphone and Fitbit. 

Twenty years ago — would that have mattered?

Probably not.

But, in 2023? 

I need all the help I need to  make sure I can keep up with myself, even at my pace. 

Check the time, I must, and the date and my pulse rate . . . before I am good to go. If I remember where it is I am going!


Just kidding — We’ve got a GPS. 


Do you ever wonder how dependent we now are on devices which depend on satellites? 

Or, do ever think how you would be able to explain to your grandchild how all those things work— like a cell phone, or GPS?

I do.

The I older I am, the less I understand of what makes my world go around. 

But then I grew up in the age of electricity and automobiles. And I don’t remember my grandmother  explaining how they worked. (She was just getting used to the phone and electric stove!)

I take so much for granted, as if I really could produce my daily bread. 

 You say grace before meals.
All right.
But I say grace before the play and the opera,
And grace before the concert and pantomime,
And grace before I open a book,
And grace before sketching, painting,
Swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing;
And grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
~G.K. Chesterton

  Would that I did. 

Silent gratitude isn’t very much use to anyone who has done a lot for you. ~G. B. Stern, Robert Louis Stevenson: The Man Who Wrote ‘Treasure Island,’ 1954

God has done a lot for me.  

Thank you, God — for keeping me, especially when I am disconnected from my devices, and especially for being the God of my gray hairs. (Isaiah 46:3-5)

Here we go again . . . heading into longer days, playing hide and seek with an hour we will find November 5, Lord willing. 

Praying that as all those satellites stay put, we  won’t forget the Lord who keeps the stars in their place. 

Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, Not one of them is missing. (Isaiah 40:26 )
