    OK let's all tell the truth now, Am I the only one that ended up at church an hour early this morning?

    I left about 20 minutes earlier than I normally do. I knew what time it was, but my neighbor didn't think I did. He stopped and told me so.

    We had to attend both morning services today since our Nick was in a puppet show. It was hard enough being at church at 8:00 for set up. Nope... we were on time. I always set all the clocks in the house ahead the day before to try and not have such a shock.

    Actually, I realised that I had forgot to set our clocks back when we were halfway there, so, no, we didn't end up there an hour early.

    I have done that in the past, though.

    I used to be part of a truck stop ministry. I would get there early, set things up, and start some music. Well, I had the music going, eating my biscuits and gravy, wondering where everyone was. I was really getting nervous, thinking I was going to have the entire service myself. I went on up to the register to pay, and looked at their clock. Boy was I relieved to see that it was still just over an hour until time to start. Of course, some of the truckers in there probably didn't like hearing gospel music for two hours!

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    Local Catholic church has a special "Early Mass" for folks who come an hour BEFORE the normal morning times. Maybe we should try that . . .

    And no, I was right on time (almost late) because of the snow/ice on the block walk over.

    Then again,

    I was always taught that if you are early, you're on time, and if you're on time, then you are late. ;)

    I set my clocks back the night before, so no. But my friend called me from the parking lot and asked if she could come over because she forgot!!! LOL Of course, I said no. Just kidding!

    A friend of mine who was a single pastor many years ago met his future wife when she came an hour early on the fall time change. [​IMG]

    I did, but it was on purpose - to minister to those that didn't set their clocks. (And I'm not joking about that!)

    Turned out it wasn't really necessary. If there's anything that my congregation is on top of, it's what time it is on any given Sunday (especially when the lunch hour approaches...)!

    Actually about 15 minutes later than usual. It was one of those mornings.

    My daughter (5 yrs old) was sitting at the breakfast table Sunday, and was looking very carefully at the clock on the wall. She couldn't figure out what I changed about the clock!

    I haven't done that for a few years. Last time I did, I went out for breakfast and nobody knew (at least as far as I know).

    In Arizona we don't change our clocks so those who are usually early were and those who are usually late were. [​IMG]

    Well wife and I woke up at 7 am according to our new clock we have next to the bed. Wife ask, did I turn the clock back. I reply no, she says good got another hour. We get up at 8 only to find out that it is really 8 because the clock automaticly changes the time for daylight savings. She was late, cause she opens the office, I was just fine.
