–This rabbit is on the pendulum of a metronome. The metronome is an instrument that gives a signal to measure the tempo, or speed, at which the music must be played.
This kind of metronome has a a pendulum, and the heart (on the pendulum) can be adjusted up or down. The lower the heart, the quicker the tempo.
The pendulum has graduations marked by musical terms denoting tempos from slow to fast. In this image, everything is fast (grouillo, rapido, presto, magno) however, the rabbit does not seem to be too shaken.
-One colour is common: red. We see it on the bible, in the heart, with the rabbits' tongue. The three are in harmony. "Preach the word", this is done with the heart.
-Behind the metronome, there is a key to wind it up. We can each ask ourselves, which is the key that lifts us up to proclaim the word of God.
-The side of the metronome is graded between red and blue. Blue is cold, red is hot. To proclaim the word when things are going well (red) and when things are not going so well (blue).
-The background is also graded: grey at the bottom, light yellow at the top. The rabbits' head is in the yellow. The rabbit is in the light when he speaks of God.
-A setback, in my day, it is something that was unexpected, and which bothers me
-A setback, in my Christian life, it is something unexpected, but which could help me grow tremendously.
Which are the setbacks that helped me grow? Why?
Which are the ones that made me fall off my feet? Why?
