Weekend Wisdom

Weekend Wisdom: Make Time for Change


Time to turn those clock ahead one hour. I normally do not look forward to losing an hour sleep, but this winter I have struggled with dark mornings. It is supposed to be dark at night, not at morning.

Mornings are for light.


So for the first time in my life, I welcome Daylight Saving Time and the loss of sleep it brings.

A Change of Habit

I am using this occasion to make at least 1 change in my life and that is no more coffee. Instead, I will be starting my mornings with Lipton’s Matcha Tea. It is Green Tea with pure Matcha. The leaf is from the shade-grown green tea and the chlorophyll leaves are ground to a pulp, according to their website.

It reminds me of a song.

Matcha, Matcha Tea,

I gotta get some Matcha Tea,

Matcha, Matcha Tea,

I got to be a Matcha!

(Sung to the tune of Village People’s “Macho Man.”)

I know, I know – I’m weird. It is how God wired my brain – to see things differently than the rest of you normal people.

I will update you on what changes I see from drinking Matcha Tea.

So take time this weekend to make a change, think of Daylight Saving Time as a new beginning.

And remember, while our time and habits may change Jesus does not.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Hebrews 13:8


Oh and by the way, this post is NOT sponsored by Lipton Tea or the Village People. It is sponsored by God as he is the one who whispered “widows website” in my right ear one morning over 7 years ago.
