The Clock Is Ticking

What time is it? Is it 5 till 12 already?

This clock is beautiful, isn’t it? Our landlords bought it for us while they were on vacation last year. Now it’s hanging in our sitting room. At the moment, though, it isn’t showing the current time.  I removed the batteries because the ticking is too loud and I’ve set it to 5 till 12 as it is my custom with clocks that are no longer working. 😉

Why? I don’t like things in my home that have no (more) use. Being noticed, clutter doesn’t have much of a chance to survive here. 🙂 However, sometimes I do make use of “old” things and/or turn them into something useful. A beautiful clock like the one above is not only another decorative object in our home but also a reminder that time is short and that we need to make the best use of our time now (Ephesians 5:15-16)
