Time in History

Uncategorized

This photo was taken in late August 2015 inside the living quarters at the Great Hope Plantation located in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.  The period of time in history was around the late 1700’s.

I heard that Great Hope Plantation will no longer have interpreters but will be a self guided tour with signage only.

Clock of Time

Uncategorized

 

 Our Life time is often wasted in haste and waste.

God’s time is not fast or slow; it continues with a steady pace.

 

Tick tock, tick tock is the rhythm of the clock.

A humans’ time is without a lock.

 

For some, time is short, and for others time is long.

How long is it to the end of the song?

 

Humans will rush time or try to hold back time.

But in the end, God’s time will continue to hold its chime.

 

Tick tock, tick tock is the rhythm of the clock.

Daily Prompt: Faraway

Challenge, Daily Post, Daily Prompt, Uncategorized

Faraway is a word difficult to visualize its definition.  I remember when I’d take a trip with my parents I’d ask them how long will it be before we are there?  My dad would say, “20 more miles.”   At that age of 8 to 11 years old, I had no idea how far is 20 miles.

Faraway is like a football player intercepts the football on the opposing team 20- yard line.  He needs to run 80 yards to get the touch down.  80 yards is not far, but if you have 10 big guys chasing you it is faraway.

Like the word time, it is not always determined by seconds, minutes, or hours.

As my wife prepares a desert and she knows I am not a cook.  I ask, “when will the cookies be ready” I get the answer, “as soon as the dough rises and I still have to bake it.”  I am right back where I started.

How is the distance of faraway measured?
