A Thought for the Week

by John M Grimes

You have heard the saying, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life." As long as we have life, each and everyone of us must live within the confines of time day by day. It is a precious possession. We can use it or we can waste it. At this very minute a life is being changed somewhere by someone or something, for better or worse. A hope is being born, a dream is being shattered. Pleas are being heard, accepted and rejected. Things happen every day.
This very minute, a part of today, will soon be gone. It can never be replaced. It can be used to advantage to bring happiness or it can be shunned aside to cause regret and faded hopes in the tomorrows to come. Yesterday is gone. There may or may not be a tomorrow. But we do have TODAY.
"Come on, let's live! Let's be brave, and face today. It is OUR day. Let's meet trouble and conquer it. Let's use smiles to chase away the frowns . . . Let's fill our hearts with the truth of purpose. Let's have hope for the future. Let's be honest and straightforward . . . Let's look up and not down. Let's face the storms of doubt with determination to win. Let's have faith in God and self. Let's pray . . . Come on, let's live!" - Everett Wentworth Hill
