Saving Time

Technology makes it almost seamless. We go to bed on one schedule and wake to another. Overnight we’ve lost an hour and though we no longer have a multitude of clocks to change (aside from the ones in our vehicles and on kitchen appliances) our bodies know something screwy is afoot.

And so Monday comes and we get on with it, ignoring as best we can the foolishness that makes us think we are mighty enough to control time. There seem to be so many things we like to think we can control. Wisdom says there are many more it’s best to release.

I let go of a couple over the weekend, and the heaviness I was carrying is lifted. Last week was a bear. Not for any visible reason but there was a battle raging, nonetheless.

Now it’s Monday and time to begin in grace, and with love, again. Present. Eyes and heart open to wonder. Let’s walk this way instead.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Such a lovely photo … and a reminder of the timeless beauty of flowers. Our clocks do not go back for several weeks yet, but it always takes an adjustment. Hoping there is lightness and more sparkles of joy in this week for you.

  2. The time change threw me off too, so I bought myself a bouquet of tulips!

    Grace and peace to you this Tuesday and for the rest of the week, Linda.
