Shade Tree Wisdom 2/29/12
I had to make use of this day, did I not?
We have such leap year days to keep the seasons and the calendar in sync. It actually takes the sun a trifle more than 365 days to return to one spot directly above the earth’s equator. It takes 365.2422 days. We round it to 365 and add a day each four years to make that up.
A fact I dredged up is that the Heriksen family had 3 children, each born on leap days, in 1960, 1964, and l968, The Guinness Book of World Records records this tidbit.
So, what does the day mean for you? After all, the truth of the psalmist stays with us. “Blessed are all they that put their trust in You.” Psalm 2,12.
So use the day to His glory, and out of it flows blessings. One suggestion, start a daily reading of the Small Catechism to refresh your day and strengthen your faith.
