I may never see tomorrow, there’s no written guarantee and things that happened yesterday belong to history.
I cannot predict the future, I cannot change the past. I have just the present moment, I must treat it as my last.
I must use the moment wisely, for it soon will pass away and be lost to me forever as part of yesterday.
I must exercise compassion, help the fallen to their feet. Be a friend to the friendless, make an empty life complete.
The unkind things I do today may never be undone and friendships that I fail to win may nevermore be won.
I may not have another chance on bended knee to pray, and I thank God with humble heart for giving me the day.
* No, not my writing, not sure who the author is. Just something I keep taped to my filing cabinet and had the nudge to share today.
