Here we are again, back to normal time – whatever normal means.  The thought of getting an extra hour of sleep used to appeal to me. When we had a dog, they never seemed to get the memo. Their wakeup clock was set for the same time every day. I’ve become an early riser over the years, and my hours of awake time usually run out by 9 PM, so now I’ll be ready for bed 9 PM but it will actually be 8 PM. The question is, will I be tired at 8 PM?  I suppose it all balances out over time, but this twice a year changing of the clock seems so senseless to me.  They’ve begun stretching the time a little each year.  At this rate, we might be on actual time in 2042 or so, which would make me over a hundred and I don’t think I want to wait that long. Will I get hungry at the same times? Since I’m almost always hungry, it won’t make much difference, but my body may have another opinion.  Will I arrive early to church?  Well, we used to be the first ones there, so that shouldn’t be a problem.  We may just have to wait for an hour until someone arrives to unlock the door.

I guess the early thinking on this subject was designed for those in agriculture.  With days stretching out to longer time periods of daylight, they would make use of the extra hour to sow, harvest and reap.  Now most of them get up with the cows, which will be an hour earlier.  The cows can’t change their time to be milked, but farmers will need to get up earlier to take care of that chore. Have we become slaves to time?  Maybe so.  Maybe this is just another government attempt to keep us focused on the mid-term election.  Like we really need to watch another political ad, right?

Well, here it is, 8:30 AM and the sun has apparently risen. By 4 PM the sky will turn dark, and I’ll feel like crawling back in to bed, but we can’t miss the football games. That’s a whole other post.

So, we’ll complain about the change of time again. We’ll take at least a week of getting used to the change.  Our minds tell us one thing, but the clock on the wall holds a completely different story.  We’ll scoff at the first person who came up with this antiquated idea.  We’ll accept it and live with it.  Something like sheep staying with the herd.  Baaaaaa!



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. LOL! Our state has actually spent years trying to get rid of the time change. We passed a resolution, voted on it, even got the Governor to sign it, but apparently congress and the President now have to approve it. So we are forced to turn our clocks back against our will, for yet another year.

    I like falling back. I hate springing forward. But some kook with a PhD said that our internal clocks were designed for standard time. What idiocy! God invented time, but we applied the numbers. I agree we were meant to basically work during the day and sleep at night, but I think the “doctor” took it too far. Make up your mind and stick to one time. The change is tough on us old folks.

    Kathy, you made me giggle! I nodded my head through this entire post. I’m an “early to bed, early to rise “ girl. 9-5 or 10-6. This morning I had a cup of coffee at 4 am. It’s 6:25 pm and I’m not for sure I can make it 3 more hours. It took me 2 days (a total of 5 hours) just to make a post. At this rate I’m useless. But what I know is I’m thankful for the TIME to SEE you and know you’re well. I love you and pray for you and Paul each day. It may be early when I start praying tomorrow again. I’ll let you know how Tuesday goes. Much love Momma. 💛💕💚🙏🏻

    As you know, I have complained about the change to DST and back for years. The U.S. Senate voted last March to end the nonsense, but the House has failed to act upon it, so we’re stuck with it for the foreseeable future. Maybe the new Congress that begins in January will get their act together and get rid of this abomination. J.
