Daylight Saving Time (DST) is used to save energy and make better use of daylight. It was first used in 1908 in Thunder Bay, Canada. DST is a seasonal time change measure where clocks are set ahead of standard time during part of the year, usually by one hour. As DST starts, the sun rises and sets later on the clock than the day before.
Today, about 40% of countries worldwide use it to make better use of daylight and to conserve energy.
So here we go……
I began the day by taking Bentley to get groomed and while he was getting fixed up I walked across the square to get myself groomed. I learn so much about Franklin every time I get a haircut. I encourage everyone to shop local! These businesses have had to deal with a lot with all of the COVID restrictions. They could use our support. Then I headed to Portland to have breakfast with Pastor Ricky Morris, love this brother! We have been friends since middle school and I am so thankful to partner with him and Living Free to plant a church in Franklin. Did some office work the rest of the afternoon. DeAnna had a girl’s night out with her friend, Jennifer Pelfrey. She had a filet at Jimmy Kelly’s and I had a can of soup from Campbell’s. They had a blast catching up and I am sure the whole restaurant could hear them laughing.
Saturday morning I had breakfast with Pastor Bobby Joe Forshee at Rylan’s. If you want an awesome breakfast head this way, it is worth the drive. Pastor Forshee worked for the city of Franklin and has started and built churches all over south-central Kentucky. It was great to connect with this champion of the faith and hear his stories of planting churches. He serves with another denomination and we sat at the same table as we ate and fellowshipped together. See how that works! Kinda like heaven, don’t be surprised if you don’t see your church’s sign on the pearly-gates. In the afternoon, our daughter, Danielle passed through town on the way to the beach with some of her long-time friends from school. I love the fact that she is so close with these great gals and that they intentionally stay connected. DeAnna made us a taco salad and we talked for a bit before she had to head out.
Did not have a service scheduled this weekend so we were at Living Free. I loved being able to play bass on the praise team. I now have two blisters since it’s been a while since I have played. When I first started doing anything at the church it was playing the bass. I was so inexperienced that the piano player, Carol, would reach back and turn my amp off, eventually she left it on. Pastor Aaron Pollard preached a great message. This young man of God is going to do amazing things for the Kingdom. Daylight savings time stinks! I came home from church and took a nap.
