Ducks In A Row

Sue’s Views
I like to find out the origin of some of the sayings that are commonly used. When I took this photo ….. ‘having your ducks in a row’ came to mind! I discovered there are many different stories as to where it comes from. Mostly sporting terms from ten pin bowling ….. to pool ….. to actual duck shooting. But the common thought seems to be to be prepared and organised before tackling a project. Great advice! It’s always good to be prepared and to count the cost. It reminds me of this passage from the Bible:
“For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?” Luke 14:28-31
