Yesterday & Tomorrow
( February, 2003 Volume 3 No.2 )

There are two days in every week about
which we should not worry;
two days which should be kept free
from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday with all
its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.

Yesterday has passed forever
beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot
bring back Yesterday.

We cannot undo a single act we performed;
we cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone forever.

The other day
we should not worry
about is Tomorrow
with all its possible
adversities, its burdens,
its large promise and its poor performance.
Tomorrow is also beyond
our immediate control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise
either in splendor or behind a mask
of clouds; but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow,
for it is yet to be born.

This leaves only one day -- Today.
Any person can fight the battle of just one day.

It is when you and I add the burdens
of those two awful eternity's
Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today
that drives a person mad;
it is the remorse or bitterness of something
which happened Yesterday and the dread of what
Tomorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.

Have a wonderful day today.
