Wristwatches–And Psalm 31:15

You remember the defunct blue watch I got in Norfolk? Well, Rebecca at Clas Ohlsen Customer Services refunded the money within 48 hours of the parcel being posted. And I bought this pink one in Argos. I’m really pleased with it. It’s comfortable, clear and cheap!

I meant to post about this sooner and then forgot. What reminded me was a conversation with colleagues at school – people were speaking about the local woman who died during the London Marathon, and also another young man killed locally this week in a motorcycle accident. One person said she believed in Fate and when Your Time came, then you could do nothing to stop it. “What do you think, Ang? What would your husband say?” I was asked.

“I think I would agree with what it says in the Psalms – I believe my time is in God’s hands- and personally I cannot think of a safer place. He knows what tomorrow will bring, and I am trusting Him to sort it out.”


  1. That is amazing service!! I think it's lovely to hear about companys who value their customers and reputations instead of walking all over them like some places these days.

  2. Good service, and a good converstaion, too! Yesterday night Son 2 asked me: 'What do you think is the meaning of life?'! Turns out it was in a book he was reading (not Hitchiker's)! He concluded it was to promote life and produce more life, and I said I thought it was to find out God's plan for us and follow it through. I think we agreed that our ideas could be compatible...

    1. I am so impressed that your sons not only read, but also discuss their books with you! Currently struggling at school with a few reluctant readers - and wishing that their parents had encouraged reading when they were younger.
      And yes- customer service was faultless [even if the watch wasn't!]

  3. I love the hot pink...perfect for a biker chick!

  4. Good response to your colleagues x

  5. I love cheap watches that also work well - especially when they're analog and bright pink like yours.

    Re your conversation: Another verse that comes to mind is, "All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be." (Psalm 139 I think.)

    And on the meaning of life, I love this: "What is the chief end of man? To glorify God and enjoy Him fully forever." :)
