A 12-mile marathon between the renowned hare and tortoise of Aesops’ fables. My parents gift of the above child’s alarm clock is one of my earliest memories.
So, as a young boy I often checked at noon which character got to the winning post first – tortoise always won! Although fast and agile, the hare ran 12 times further than ‘torty’ slowly plodded. And their marathon battle was never-ending! Or, so it was until I got too old for that early 1950’s time-piece.
This wonderful teaching device gave me a good idea of time and probably inculcated an appreciation of how it cycles around, and of ‘wheels within wheels’ – but more so when I had opportunity to peek inside next-door neighbour’s large clock over their kitchen fire-place.
All this is to announce the completion of revisions to this blog’s main Menu. After having used various past posts, I jotted some ever so brief thoughts on how eternity may relate to time.
And guess what – I found this totalled an unintentional 7 pages, as follows:
- Eternity and Prophecy
- The Nature of Time
- Cycles & the Bible
- The Natural Year (Eric Hadik)
- Historic Aprils in USA & Israel (Eric Hadik)
- Invisible Jigsaw
The first five contain mainly new material and are found in the ‘Cycles & Time’ hub. The other two under ‘God-incidences & Jigsaws’ hub are brief distillations from published posts. All contain supportive scriptures.
I trust you will take a look, enjoy what you read and be blessed. Any comments and corrections are welcome.
