Daylight Saving Time

This video, created by someone named I. M. Bored, tells everything you ever wanted to know about Daylight Saving Time! For example, I found out I've been saying it wrong for the past 50 years---there's no S at the end of Saving! I must have confused it with the spring forward/fall back tendency of my bank savingS account. oh well . . .
It's Friday. Time to lighten up---especially since it'll be a LOT darker next Friday! So for today, I hope a grin, a smile, chuckle or even a laugh comes your way. Even in the midst of grief, laughter is still the best medicine.
Turn your clock back TOMORROW NIGHT before you go to bed (unless you are fortunate enough to live in certain counties of Indiana or other such common sense places!).
And have a good weekend.
I'm thankful for my parents. I know they pray for me, and they're always excited about and supportive of (most of) my various adventures. I'm glad they approved of my second husband, Tom, when they met him. (Or maybe they were just so relieved that I hadn't met an axe murderer on the Internet!) It'd be nice if we lived closer, but I'm very thankful that they've always been healthy, active and able to be involved in my life. 
What about you? Will you join me by naming one thing for which you're thankful? If you'd like, mention it on the comment line right here. Others love to read your comments. Thanks! :)


  1. That was quite interesting, Ferree. And I never knew I was saying it wrong all these years either! I for one love DST and am saddened when it is time to go back to Standard Time.

    I am thankful for a very personal God, who knows each of us as individuals and keeps His promise to never leave or forsake us, especially when we are hurting and need Him the most! His Faithfulness has never been so evident as during my husband's four month long critical illness and since my widowhood began two and a half years ago. Thank You, Lord, for continuing to walk with all the heartbroken people in this community!

  2. God's promise to never leave us or forsake us was extremely meaningful to me as a widow--especially when I was feeling like He had forsaken me. I'm so thankful His Word was true inspite of how I felt at that time. It's His Word and His work in my heart that brought me back around to rest in the truth that He was (and is) with me. Thank you for the reminder, Renee. God is near to the brokenhearted.
