2020 is shaping up to be a leap year in more ways than one. The word leap can be used as a verb—to jump a long way with force. It also works as a noun—a forceful jump or quick movement. Whichever way it is used, it describes action.
Facts about Leap season:
- February 29 is a leap day. This day is added to the calendar in leap years as a corrective measure, because the Earth does not orbit the sun in precisely 365 days.
- 2020 is a leap year with 366 days. It rolls around every four years, except for years evenly divisible by 100, which are not leap years unless evenly divisible by 400.
- March 8 begins Daylight Savings in the US. This means we leap ahead one hour and that day has 23 hours instead of 24. I love this anonymous quote about daylight saving time:“Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket.”
- March 20 will be the day we leap into Spring.
- November 3 – Election Day. In which direction will US voters leap?
- Coronavirus – As we watch it leap from one country to another, we are concerned about its effects. As a result, the stock market has taken a giant leap downward.
Leap to a better you:
- Take a leap of faith.
- Faith is the opposite of fear
- Taking a leap of faith says that we believe God rather than
what we hear in the world or what logic or fear tell us.
I can survive a Leap Year filled with uncertainties and scary changes if I take the unchangeable God at his word and rely on him through the next 366 days.
