All in Good Time

I noticed the clocks first, even before I walked inside the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. 

There’s a clock on the outside of the building that I could see from far away as I walked along the banks of the Seine. There’s a gorgeous gilded clock inside the lobby. And there’s a gigantic clock on the fifth floor of the museum that looms over the tourists who stand under it. 

The building was originally a railway station before it became a museum filled with art, so I’m sure keeping track of the time is pretty important when you’re waiting to catch a train. 

But when you’re waiting for the monumental events of life to arrive and time keeps marching on, it’s hard to ignore the sound of minutes ticking away on the clock of your life.

More Reading for Your Weekend

And if you'd like an extra read for your weekend {while you relax with a cup of coffee and an Italian biscotti!} a few weeks ago I was thrilled to guest blog over at Culture With Travel about my love affair with the food of Italy.

  1. You are all over the place! Your post on Culture with Travel was wonderful, I cannot wait to see the rest on incourage!

    1. Brittany,
      You are my motivator! I don't know what I'd do without you cheering me on! xo

  2. A toast to you my dear! I love both of these posts- Italy has a way of bringing out the best in you and it shows through your poetic writing ♥ Time for me to heed some of your advice and get back to looking at things through God's time frame and not my own. Good reminder with the verse you posted on the seamless study today too....xo

    1. Heather,
      Thank you, friend! God's timeframe is so different from ours, isn't it? Sometimes we need to step out and sometimes we just have to step back and let him move us forward, don't we? xoxo So grateful for you!

  3. I was tickled to see your post getting published at InCourage. :) Such beautiful encouragement, Valerie! It's a comfort to know that God has time and our hearts in His hands and nothing is wasted. I love the meaning behind you looking from behind the clock hands and seeing "the sacred heart of Jesus."

    1. Hi Trudy,
      Oh I'm so grateful for your constant encouragement here! Thank you for noticing my guest post and I'm so glad God does have everything in his hands! xo
