I just read this in a book by Ruth Bell Graham, "Legacy of a Pack Rat", and I wanted to share it with all my Spark friends.
It seemed to fit right in with our philosophy...
It was sent to her by Pastor Freyer in Mequon, Wisconsin.
There was once a clock pendulum waiting to be fixed. It began to calculate how long it would be expected to tick day and night, so many times a minute, sixty times every hour, twenty-four hours every day and three hundred and sixty-five times every year. It was awful! Enough to stagger the mind. Millions of ticks!
"I can never do it." said the poor pendulum. But the clockmaster encouraged it.
"Do just one tick at a time," he said. "That is all that will be required of you."
So the pendulum went to work, one tick at a time, and it is ticking yet.
