Tick tock...this is the way Ella watches Peter Pan. She either has to be on one of our laps, or she has her blanket around her head, which at a moment's notice she will throw over her face. This is not so much because of Captain Hook, but because of the Croc and the Clock. You see, the croc has swallowed Captain Hook's favorite clock, and whenever it swims nearby, you can hear the clock ticking in it's tummy...tick tock...croc getting closer. The verse in my last post talked about how God swallowed death up forever, so we don't have to be as afraid of time anymore. I have heard it said that God is in all times at once, that he stands outside of time. When I was a little girl, my question to all the adults was how could God not have a beginning, I could not understand it. But if we could understand everything about God, that might put us on a level too close to him, and who would want a God like that? I do so love a good mystery.
