Happy birthday to me.
About 5 years ago, I started gifting myself a watch for my birthday. Since then, I have collected 6 lovely watches, each has its unique meaning, signifying a stage of personal growth.
A watch symbolizes time, calibrates time and also doubles as adornment for the arm. It is the instrument measuring time; life. Although, time cannot be captured, anchored or frozen, timepieces can be collected.
The psalmist prayed “teach us to number our days, so we may get a heart of wisdom.” The watches are my physical measure of my days, they calibrate my stages and stations in life; each one symbolizes growth from the prior year. Each watch tells it’s unique story of maturity, personal and spiritual growth, professional advancement, social mobility, accumulation of experience and wisdom.
When I look back at the years with which God has blessed me with so far, I’m overwhelmed with gratitude for each one, even for the periods that seemed filled with tribulations. Each preceding year added wisdom to the next one, leading to exponential growth.
Time has been so kind to me. I pray for it’s continuous kindness.
