WELCOME TO TIME CHANGE SUNDAY! My body did not understand it was supposed to sleep an hour longer today so here I am with an extra hour to do something today. But I have to be quiet because the others in the house obviously got the word and continue to sleep. Life is not fair sometimes but then I have known that since the time I was born and some guy slapped me on the behind and made me cry; honestly I had not done anything to him. So here I am in my later years in life and quite frankly I am tired of people complaining about how unfair life is and how life is abusing them so we must have elections so we can vote people into office who will give us everything that life has unfairly denied us. And I am sure many of these complainers would like to sue the doctor who slapped their little behinds when they were born.
On a more positive note I am thankful that God has allowed me to be born in a country where people can complain freely without fear of reprisal unless they are surrounded by people who think they are the only people who are allowed to complain. Go figure. But on this strange morning when we decide if we are changing our clocks to get back on “regular time” or if we truly are already on “regular time” and we are just trying to figure out what the true time is let us pause a moment and talk to God who has given us life and all the opportunities that go with it for everyone. As the Psalmist said, “Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. Rescue me from my enemies, Lord, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground,” (Psalm 143: 8-10 NIV). Since I have to be quiet for that extra hour I should just spend it quietly with God. That is a real blessing.
