The LOFT – A Clock

For the LOFTThe Loft: A weekly Hangout and Link Up for Christian bloggersGraphic by Kerry Messer

Giving thanks.

That’s been our writing prompt this month. It’s a good writing prompt. It’s an excellent living prompt. 🙂

 

Today I am giving thanks for our dining area clock. imageIt has been a fixture on our wall since, well, since I don’t know when. Some months ago with a little help of an elbow wrongly placed, it fell. It’s hands drooped, telling us only twice a day the correct time – 6:30.

We missed the clock.  We missed knowing the correct time. We thought of buying a new one but just didn’t get around to it. We often procrastinate at our house. 😉

 So this week we determined that’s it, we are going to buy a new clock. 😦

Oh wait maybe we could just buy new parts and keep the old frame. Yes, lets do that! So JT took the clock from the wall and began to disassemble it to determine what new replacement parts to buy.

Old parts in hand and under close examination, he discovered the jolt months earlier had only displaced the hands – reattaching them to their proper place, a new battery and ta da! She works!

You know if we had closely examined the clock when she and the elbow collided, we would have discovered the real reason she no longer responded as anticipated. We could have lifted up her hands and enjoyed her time keeping all these months. 

12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, . . .  [ source – Hebrews 12:12 KJV]

How often in our haste or procrastination have we put aside what only needs some reattaching, some lifting up to its original place of honor, esteem, working order, etc. – be it clocks or relationships?

Yes, giving thanks today for clocks that teach lessons and tell time. 🙂

Well, Y’all the LOFT for new posts will be closed until December 2. As to The White Stone – we’ll see when the next time is

  1. What a great question: “How often in our haste or procrastination have we put aside what only needs some reattaching, some lifting up to its original place of honor, esteem, working order, etc. – be it clocks or relationships?”

    Yes, I admit I’ve been guilty of not doing the work to repair relationships. May I think twice before thinking “it’s not worth it.”

    Thanks for sharing at The Loft!

  2. There you are. I’ve missed my “white stone” wisdom. I’m so glad I’ve found you again. You are a treasure. I will just lift up my hands and let the Lord do His repair of the clockworks of my soul. Love ya and maybe someday we will meet face-to-face. Uniquely yours in Him – Chris~

    1. I would so love that Chris! To meet you face to face — one day. Here or There for sure. I am smiling big with your take on the post – lifting up your hands for HIM to repair the clockworks of your soul! That will preach Girl! Thank you so much!!
