A playground roundabout (or merry-go-round) is a flat disk about 3 - 5 feet in diameter that can be made to spin by pushing on its handles. The children who spin it can jump on, and experience a dizzying ride. The playground roundabout is a simplified version of a fairground carousel. wikipedia.org
Life is much like the roundabout we would play on at the park when we were children, you remember that flat round disk shaped with the handle bars which we would grab tightly for to hang onto as to keep from tumbling off and if you were on it for an extended period you just may would get somewhat dizzy. If you wished to ride you had to run and jump aboard, you also had individuals jumping off and to keep the roundabout turning or spinning someone would grab a handle bar and run as fast as he or she could for momentum just prior to jumping aboard. In this life there are people born, theoretically jumping aboard this life’s roundabout while on this roundabout we experience many of life’s ups and downs in essence we are pilgrims passing through life’s roundabout, our time must come to get off.
The bible tells us - I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. - Ecclesiastes 9:11
This roundabout has been spinning since Adam and Eve think of them that have come and gone to have helped keep this roundabout spinning one day it will stop and I desire to be a good and faithful servant. Matthew 25:21 - His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
