Chapter 4, Page 28, Book 19


What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives with in us.

Henry David Thoreau.

April 28th - You cannot do anything about is behind you, but you can do a great deal about that lies ahead of you.


I arise full of eagerness and energy knowing well what achievement lies ahead of me.

Zane Grey

None of us knows exactly what the future will bring, but we have today to make the most of.  What we do today will make a difference in what tomorrow will bring.

A lot of the joy in life comes from the surprise each day offers.  Knowing it all would take that away.

If someone would have told me what would happen in the future, I may have just given up and not even tried.  But as it turns out, I still look forward to each day



The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.

J.R.R. Tolkien

Although a great adventure lies ahead, we all need to learn about how to appreciate the present.  There is nothing wrong with taking life one day at a time.  And stopping to smell the roses is good for you.  I promise.

I don’t know what my future holds, but that is okay!


Stop being afraid of what lies ahead. Start working today to reach your better tomorrow.

That is so true- we do not know what lies ahead of us and I think it is a good thing that we don't know!!! I hope that you have a blessed, wonderful Sunday- xo Diana

I really shouldn't be so predictable (HA) …..
but this has prompted me to quote Mr. Brooks: "I might have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance." (Have you ever noticed how much unvarnished truth exists in country music?)

I think this is why God doesn't tell us what is going to happen to us in our lives. We would literally run away or give up like you mentioned. But he does promise to be with us every step along the way, no matter how hard it might be. So like you said, it is good to take one day at a time and live that day to its fullest.
