I know why they change the time twice a year, but I do not know whose idea it was. This I do know; whoever it was did not have kids or enjoy sleep in any fashion. For 27 years I have had children and for much of those years there was a preschooler involved. Trust me when I say these preschool folks do not understand or care about the time change; their body just keeps on ticking on the old clock.

The weeks immediately following the time change are spent with people up at all kinds of odd hours while adults try to work out a strategy to get things back to normal. Fortunately us parents do finally get everyone straightened out, ourselves included. Normally this occurs about a month before the next time change. Change good or bad in our life is a constant, figuring out how to deal with it is the great trick of life.

Fortunately we have a God who has our back. He knows what is in front of us and is working, often behind the scenes, to prepare us for upcoming change. Funny in life it seems as though the minute you get things figured out life throws another challenge at you. We do best not to resist it, but learn to trust God on the journey that He has us on. The only thing more constant in life than change is the God who shows us the way.

Proverbs 4:18, “The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.”
