Speaking of March, Daylight Saving Time will begin three weeks early and end one week late, beginning this year. I'm one of those who wishes they'd just leave the time alone, but they don't listen to me, so . . . we change the clocks. I do enjoy the summer daylight hours here, though. In the height of summer, it stays light till almost 11:00 and the sun is rising again by 4:30 the next morning. Long, sunny days!
Speaking of early mornings, Samuel is starting his job this coming Monday. He starts work at 7:00 AM, so that means a pretty early rising time for him. But this summer, it will be light about the time he gets up, so he won't have to drive down in the dark. He had his orientation and training sessions today. He met a guy named Charles who will be working at the same place. Charles is a black guy with dreadlocks. Samuel said he's a pretty nice guy, and he told us some of the things Charles said today. I think Charles is going to be a rich well of funny stories! It warmed my heart to hear my son say that Charles was a nice guy, dreadlocks nonetheless. I'm glad he's looking past the outside to befriend the man on the inside. Hopefully Sam will be able to witness to Charles and see him come to the Lord. Wouldn't that be neat?
Another update on the Maxwell baby:
Melanie’s contractions have slowed way down and decreased in intensity so much that she gets to go back home to her bed rest there.
Let's keep praying that the Lord will keep him/her in there for a few more weeks!
I need to run for now. I've been invited to bring a devotion at a ladies' luncheon tomorrow, and I need to finish that up. I've been blessed as I've studied, and I may share with you some of the things I learned, most of which you probably already know! LOL There's nothing new under the sun!
