Daylight Shavings

Don’t forget to set your clocks back, and your hearts forward.


I’ll save this daylight in a jar

And let it out the coming spring

That way I’ll know it can’t get far

Complete control, yes, that’s the thing

But what if my reality

Is not the way things really are?

Is it human fallacy

to try and save light in a jar?

    We changed the time a week ago. It is darker at night but since I have had a rough and hectic time that one hour on Sunday was highly appreciated… lol!

    not fallacy at all, just faith in action!
    Set that jar at some focal point on your desk
    and let your light shine.

  6. I’ve always felt daylight savings to be a bit of a fruitless human thing

  8. My first in the morning reminds people if they live in an area where the time changes to check their clocks. I don’t get the extra hour of sleep as I tend to be awake most nights when the time changes.

    While we can’t save light in a jar, the Light however can save the jars by putting Himself in them. Thanks for this Mitch!!!!
