After almost a week after the time change, I still don’t like it. I’ve been subbing, which means my clock goes off at 5:30.
Monday morning when it went off, I looked, and it was dark! Thought surely my clock was wrong, but no, it really was 5:30 and still dark. It takes some adjusting. Congress has been working on a bill called the Sunshine Protection Act which would make daylight saving time permanent. However, if passed it won’t go into effect until 2023. We’ll have to wait and see.
The weather in the last two weeks has definitely run the gamut from hot to cold. Saturday two weeks ago everyone was in short sleeves, then last Saturday, you needed coat, hat and gloves. This week, the forecast is for more springlike temperatures. Hopefully the weather will be nice this next week as it’s spring break for Coosa County schools, as well as many surrounding areas.
So, last week we had the time change on March 13 and this week St Patrick’s Day on March 17. This Sunday is the first day of spring.
However, we probably aren’t done with cold weather as we had thunder in February. The old wives tale is “thunder in February, frost in April.” We’ll have to wait and see.
The Central High School PTO is getting ready to makeover the school garden. So, if you have extra seeds and garden tools, they would appreciate the donation. Also, donations of soil or materials for their raised beds are needed. Basically, if it’s for a garden they need it. Please contact me or Maressa Ware if you have anything to donate.
Also, the Central High PTO is sponsoring the inaugural Rainbow Run this Saturday, March 19, from 9 to 12. You can still register that day if you want to participate, or you can just come watch the fun. This was postponed from March 12 because of the weather.
Don’t forget to go to church this Sunday! All the churches in our area are having regular services, so I encourage you to find a church if you don’t have one already.
The Bible verse I want to share with you this week is Psalm 3:3 which reads, “You, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the One who lifts my head.”
This verse encourages us to remember that regardless of what comes our way God is there to protect us from whatever is going on in our lives. David was calling on God to protect him from his enemies who were trying to kill him. While we don’t have to fear for our lives as David, we do have other enemies we face each day. Depend on God to deliver us. Then, praise Him for keeping us safe.
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, and others have family that are having health issues. Please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs.
Until next week, take care and be joyful!
