Did I Just Lose an Hour?
Looking out of my window, the light is different; it is an hour later. Time sprang forward in the wee hours of March 11, and I forfeited an hour. It will be repaid, however, in the fall, on November 4.
In the meantime, you and I have roughly 259 extra hours of daylight; that’s close to 10 days. (It’s like shopping math.)
Therefore, although we think we lost an hour of sleep, we have gained light to spend our time wisely; we have extra light on loan – to be fruitful, active, and useful. (Psalm 90:12)
Daylight Savings feels like a mini replay of New Years Day for I am groggy enough. And winter is as real a companion in mid March as she was on January 1.
Come November 2018, we get that hour back. If the Lord allows, I wonder what will I have to show for all the extra hours?
What will I have tried, learned, or painted?
I hope it is more exercise, something I didn’t know, and a watercolor.
What will I have shared, given, or lost?
I hope it is compassion, time, and a few lousy attitudes!
What about you dear reader? What are you going to do with all this time on your hands?

At the time you wrote this, I had just started sewing matching robes for my daughter’s July wedding. 6 bridesmaids, 2 flower girls, 2 mothers (yes, one for me), and a fancier one for the bride. So, sewing is what I’ve done with a few of those extra hours. Here in June, I am finishing the bride’s robe soon and have only a tiny flower girl’s left. Other than that, those hours have just gone into day to day living. I hope the Lord sees good in them.
WOW! That is a lovely undertaking!
Ok. I am now convicted to excercise at the Flowery Vale Fitness Center for the Mature Adult when we get back to MD
