Two Days in a Week

My dad has taken it upon himself to share a piece of wisdom before every evening devotion with us. Last night, it was this beautiful piece. I’ve decided to share it because there is a lot of truth in it. Let your mind be at ease. (As I speak to you, so I speak to myself). Enjoy..

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

One is Yesterday
with 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.
Nor can we erase a single word we said.

The other day we shouldn’t worry about is Tomorrow
with its impossible adversaries, its burden,
its hopeful promise and poor performance.
Tomorrow is beyond our 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 unborn.

This leaves only one day – Today.
Any person can fight the battles of just one day.
It is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow
that we break down.
The experience of today doesn’t drive people mad –
it is the remorse of bitterness for something
which happened yesterday,
and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.

Let us therefore live one day at a time!

      Funny, you know.. I thought about you a few minutes ago. Random thoughts.. do we have a picture TOGETHER? I’ve been scanning my memory and all I kind find are plenty pictures of/by myself and a few of you.. on your own. I’m sure we took pictures.. at some point, no? ( ._.)

      I miss you
