James W. Moore says, "One of the greatest comedy acts in the history of show business was the beloved husband and wife team of George Burns and Gracie Allen. In real life, Gracie Allen was a bright, wise businesswoman, but she always played the part of a naive, off-the-wall personality, sweetly simple in her approach to life. On one of their radio programs, Gracie became very upset because her new electric clock kept losing time. Each day it lost lots of time, so she finally called a repairman. He discovered the problem immediately. There was nothing wrong with the clock--it just wasn’t plugged in!

"When George asked Gracie why it was unplugged she said, 'Well, I only need it when I need to know what time it is and I decided to turn it off in between to save electricity.'"

You can’t turn off time--it is moving toward that day when we will all stand before God!
