A Good Place to Be...

Tomorrow’s forecast is doleful
The future-predictions bleak
I don’t really like to think about
The tomorrow of which they speak
They say darker days are coming
I’m tired of ‘they say, they say’
And oh, I’m so very thankful
That I live in Today

'Do not worry about tomorrow'
Its fears are as ancient as dust
Greater than all our tomorrows
Is the God in whom we trust
The unknown lies before us
Who knows its 'what if's' or 'what mays'?
Only One; He watches o'er us
In all of our 'Todays'

 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, 
for tomorrow will worry about itself. 
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Matt. 6:34

  2. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
    Each day has enough trouble of its own, "Here in the little now".
    ;) :D

  3. Lucy, I was ending beans and thinking about...stuff, mostly future-tense and suddenly was reminded 'we live in the Today, not in the might be's and have-not-beens! Thank-you for your thoughts.

  4. I appreciate the perspective. Thanks.
