The Clock in the town

Witney Buttercross.

has a  LONG HISTORY

“It was in 1606 that Richard Ashcombe left £50 to build a house ‘over and above’

the cross and it then became a place where people sold perishable goods such as butter.

The clock turret was added later in 1683 following a bequest by William Blake

of Cogges who was a successful draper, wool merchant and local benefactor.

Cogges had plenty of common pasture where some local people kept flocks of sheep.

Some of those involved in the wool trade became rich and were able,

like the Blake family, to benefit the local community through endowments and charities.”

I think you will agree …..

That is a long TIME ago.

It got me thinking about  T I M E.

Perhaps it is moving to a new area and everything is new,

my thoughts have been a little looking back,

a little looking to the future,

but it has made me think about my  T I M E here and NOW,

after all

many seconds and minutes have ticked away in my writing even this post.

How do I “spend” my time?

after all

I only have one go at this thing called  LIVING!

Here are some words from others about this elusive thing ….

T I M E

“Lost time is never found again.”
Benjamin Franklin


“The future

is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour,

whatever he does,

whoever he is.”
C. S. Lewis


“Time goes, you say?   Ah, no! alas, time stays, we go.”

Henry Austin Dobson


“Time is too precious to spend – it should be invested”

Derek Stringer


Are you aware that

there is another clock that is ticking ….

we do not see it or hear it ….

it’s History is from the beginning of  T I M E

and it does have an  ALARM

listen to it ….


“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father

So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

Matthew 24: 36, 44

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

Matthew 25:13

the words of Jesus  Christ.


But we can get ready and be watchful for the times in which we live.

I would lovingly encourage you to invest  the  T I M E

to click on the Billy Graham button on the right ….

it will only take about 5 minutes of your TIME

but would last for the rest of your lifeTIME!

That’s a good Investment

Whatever the  T I M E   clock says where you are,

God’s Clock is still Ticking

  1. Hi Val

    I can’t reply to you by email as your address doesn’t come up for a reply in Blogger, so have to comment instead!

    Violet White has no real meaning – it was vaguely that I only had violets in my garden in France when I bought the house, so it seemed a reasonable title for a blog.

  2. You are living in a place so steeped in history, at least compared to my area (settled mid-late 1800’s.) Those quotes encourage me to get away from this screen and get busy living. Thank you!
