Well we are starting daylight savings time early this year as mandated by federal law. I talked to my friend in Sweden and they won't be starting until the end of March when we used to start. So now we loose the hour we gained last fall when we stopped our daylight savings program.
There are still people on our earth who don't run their lives by clocks. They get up with the sun or before, work, eat lunch, work, eat dinner and go to bed when it's dark. We, the elite developed society, have time down to a rocket science with our satellite clocks, digital time pieces and 1/1000th of a second. Reminds me of the Olympic swimmers who lost their medals by a tiny portion of a second. It was as if their supreme efforts didn't count because they were too SLOW.
Yet in the scriptures it tells us GOD'S TIME is not our time...a thousand years of our time is but one day in His time. (2 Peter 3:8- But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.) Therefore time is RELATIVE to the planet you are on and how fast it circles its sun.
We spend much of our precious time regretting the past, longing for the future and hardly ever living in the NOW moment. I found myself doing that the other day on a walk...instead of enjoying: the warm fresh air, buds trying to bloom and my good fortune to still have the health to walk, I found myself planning future events and recalling past experiences. I had to say to myself: STOP, live in the NOW moment. GRATITUDE helps us do that-make a list right now of all the wonderful blessings you have and don't forget to take a DEEP BREATH.
