Spring Forward-Forget it!

Yet again it is time to move the clocks forward, to deprive ourselves of yet another hour of sleep, and to rush our already busy schedules ahead one hour. Why, well, so we can start our day sooner, pack more activities into an already over scheduled day, and have less time to sleep so we can become more stressed than we already are.

Didn't you get the memo?

Well, I have decided that I will march to a different drum. I am not changing our clocks! The Worley's will be an hour late for everything. We will not try to cram one more thing into our already stressed schedule. We will not deprive ourselves of sleep and spend the next week cranky.

Who am I kidding?

Do you have any idea what you can get done in an hour?

Walking in the Light

Wow! This year year has been a whirlwind to say the least. I am shocked we are near the half way point in February. Part of me wants to dance. If the start of the year is any indication of how it is going to go, I am happy it's flying by. I will usher in 2009 with bells and whistles.

Yet, I am humbly reminded that every day is a gift, and I need to walk in the Light. I need to let Him guide me through each day. I need to listen to His still, quiet voice...Yeah I know for me that's a stretch. I'm never still long enough to catch my breath.

As I write this, our dear neighbor of ten years is fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I am awed by the faith she has in God. I am humbled by the fight she has within her to beat the demon we know as cancer. Hunter, in his six year old wisdom said to me, "Mommy, why are you sad? We are just going to pray and Jesus is going to make her better." The faith of a child and the living testimony of one who is dwelling in God's amazing grace reminds me to walk daily in the His unfailing light.
