It’s About Time!

My first query about this challenge is “Clock-Face,” a watch, timekeeper, what else?

However, the word “Clock-Face” reminds me of “Time.” Interesting word time.  Past-Present-Future, to know which one we look at the face of a clock, calendar, or memory. 

“Into Thy Hands, O Lord, I place my past, present, and future.” A little prayer I have been thinking about which brings me much security and or freedom from anxiety.  

Since yesterday I turned 82 years old, my time is running out! The world to me looks pretty bleak these days; therefore, my clock-face looks beckoning! No, I am not at all trying for doom and gloom or a cynic; why not? Because my life has been one of fulfillment. 

Today… let us pray… The Great, Almighty, Powerful God please give peace to all nations and bring your enemies to naught.  

My SIJO poem

GROWING UP or Growing old, too many birthdays, I am told
If you live long enough you can't escape once a year it comes
Cake, ice cream, too many candles all aglow, we call it life
