Monday Musings Is Taking a Leap!

Leap Year CalendarHave you ever wondered about those who are born on February 29th? Do they only celebrate a birthday every four years? It certainly brings new meaning to those who say they are “29 and holding”! Am I the only one today who is curious as to why every four years we take a leap and add an extra day to the calendar? Perhaps my curiosity is a reminder that the subject of science was not one of my strong points in school.

For my fellow Curious George’s, here is a “leap year” explanation that I found the most interesting. You can check it out by going to http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/what-is-a-leap-year-and-why-do-we-have-them-a6897486.html for the full details.

“Normally our calendar years are made up of 365 days, but every four years we add a day to make what is known as a ‘leap year’…A year is the time it takes the Earth to fully circumnavigate the sun, which is approximately 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 47 seconds. Every four years we add an extra day to the month of February, the month with the fewest days, to keep our calendars on track. If we didn’t do this the seasons would shift around the calendar, and in 750 years’ time June would find itself in the middle of winter.”

I don’t know what all the fuss is about? Here in Africa, June is in the middle of winter! 🙂

To all of my regular Monday Musings readers, today it is fitting that we take a leap to a new domain name. Monday Musings is “leaping” from rtc21blog.com to mymondaymusings.com. This will make it easier for people to find us on the web. PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THIS CHANGE AND BOOKMARK THE NEW DOMAIN NAME! I also want to take this opportunity to thank those who have become regular readers of my blog. So many of you have made comments from time to time that encourage me to keep writing.

Here is something to think about. Leap year even messes with those who read the Bible on a daily basis. This morning, I turned to my daily devotional. When it came to the Bible reading plan, the biblical text was blank. It struck me funny as I guess every four years we get a day off from reading the Bible. So today, instead of following my daily reading plan, I took a few minutes to “leap” through my Bible and observe some of the texts that I have underlined over the last four years. How I love the Word!!!

Until next time…

Don

    If a scripture really resonates with me in an immediate circumstance I will write a tiny date right beside it. It is very interesting when I come upon them, from time to time in regular reading, like leaping through time to see how the scripture became “a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path.”
