Grandfather Time

It's hard to believe another year is almost over. We've had such blessings this past year, and I can only imagine what 2015 has in store for us. This holiday season, we've had the pleasure of spending precious time with our family and friends. You can never take such moments for granted.

The picture above is of our Waterbury Kitchen Clock. My Grandpa Swiler collected clocks and after he passed away all of the children and grandchildren were given one of his clocks. Ours is displayed in our living room and each Christmas season, I make a point of keeping it wound each week so that it will chime on the hour--and for the most part it keeps excellent time. 

This habit usually dies down sometime in February, but during the months of December and January, the tick-tock tick-tock of that clock soothes our hearts and minds . . . and when I hear it, I think of Grandpa. Our little granddaughter likes to hear it chime on the hour and calls it Tick-Tock...

Thank you for following along on this blog, and may God bless you in 2015. 
Happy New Year!
