An Extra Hour of Sleep!!
So at 2am tomorrow morning, time will fall back one hour; Daylight Savings Time ends. The meteorologist on TV tells me that I will get an extra hour of sleep. Who’s he kidding? It just means I will be up at 3:45am instead of 4:45. This makes predawn seem like forever.
42 created us with an amazing built in clock called the Circadian rhythm that tells us when we should be resting. When we mess with this, we do not function optimally. That is because we are messing with our design, and the Creator of time and space.
My neighbor has a rhythm too. 42 designed him with a metabolism that will slow down, and he will find a snuggly place to lie down for very long periods of time. I won’t see him for some time, which is okay, because the assaults on the church’s dumpsters will cease until Spring.
Have a restful winter my friend. See you when I see you.
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.2 Peter 3:8 esv
