A PRAYER FOR THE PRESENCE OF GOD IN OUR LIVES
God be in my head, and in my understanding;
God be in mine eyes, and in my looking;
God be in my mouth, and in my speaking;
God be in my heart, and in my thinking;
God be at mine end, and at my departing.

THE HISTORY OF THE WORD ‘CURFEW’ – Thanks to Helen for forwarding!
The word “curfew” /ˈkɜːr.fjuː/ comes from the Old French phrase “couvre-feu”, which means “cover fire”. It was later adopted into Middle English as “curfeu”, which later became the modern “curfew”. Its original meaning refers to a law made by William the Conqueror that all lights and fires should be covered at the ringing of an eight o’clock bell to prevent the spread of destructive fire within communities in timber buildings.
The first formal “curfew order” was introduced in 1918 by the British board of trade, which ordered shops and entertainment establishments to extinguish their lights by 10:30 p.m. to save fuel during World War I.
