The past must never interfere with the present because its  impossible to move ahead while looking behind.

October 19 - today is all we have for certain

Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come.  Live in the present and make it so beautiful if will be worth remembering.

Ida Scott Taylor

The only time we are sure of is now.  The past is gone and future hasn’t come.  Today is what we have for sure.And we have to make the most of what we have while we have it.  It’s not perfect here, it’s raining and I’d rather have some sunshine, but It is what it is so I’ll enjoy spending time indoors and keeping dry and cozy.  There’s always plenty to do.

Today is a gift, a day we’ve not had before and we don’t know what will come in future.  We need ro take time to enjoy the moments.  To stop and smell the roses, because we don’t know how many more of them we’ll have to come.  It’s the moment we’re in right now that we can control.  We can choose to ignore the moment and waste it away or enjoy it.  It’s ours to control.

It may sound corny,, but don’t take it for granted.  Life is short so enjoy it while you can.  It’s ok o make plans as long as you don’t lose sight of the present moment.  If plans don’t work out the way you want, then at least try to accept it.  It wasn’t meant to be anyway.

Accept the moment for what it is and be happy.  

Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift.  That’s why it’s call the present.

Yes, today is all we have. Last week our ladies group began a new Bible study, "The Broken Way." At first I wasn't so engaged, but this morning's video hit home: a large mason jar filled with grains of wheat. 25,550 to be exact. The same number of days a 70 y/o person has been alive. Not grain days, but grace days.

I think we can learn from the past, we just need to make sure we don't dwell in it but enjoy and live each day to the fullest!
