My old watch is a "Relic"...and I like the interwoven silver/gold-plating on this watch. But it is symbolic in that a "relic" is out of the past...and definitely indicates the old, ancient things. The new watch is silver and is a "Caravelle" Bulova. What we didn't know was the meaning of "Caravelle" until Christmas morning when I opened my watch.
A "Caravelle" is a noun. Nautical Any of several types of small, light sailing ships, especially one with two or three masts and lateen (Latin) sails used by the Spanish and Portuguese in the 15th and 16th centuries. I cannot tell you all of the significance of this, but I can tell you that the ships represent ministry and movement on the seas which I believe are indicative of His ministry supported on the sea of His Holy Spirit. (Mid-December marked the submission to the IRS for our 501c3 ministry application.)
So, this morning during my time with the Lord, He answered a question of mine in this way. I know that it is not only for my husband and I personally, but how He is speaking to others who have been waiting and waiting for His Time.
May He bless your heart with His words.
