What got me thinking about time? Well if you're still reading then you must be vaguely interested so I'll tell you - The Innishannon Steam Rally.
This grand occasion happens over the June Bank Holiday weekend every year. It's a great family day out, but what really caught my interest was (wait for it) ... the "Slow Tractor Race". It's complicated, but basically the winner is the person to drive their tractor the slowest without stopping, so the person who comes last is the winner. Ingenious!
Can you imagine such a thing happening in New York, Tokyo or London, where millions of people race around as if their lives depended upon it all day every day? After witnessing this race - there were two heats and a final and it took a long time (but nobody was in a hurry), I know where the better quality of life can be found...
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.(2 Peter 3:8)
