Today for Yesterday… Never.

We all wish we could go back… Take back… Change a response… Take the right instead of the left… Speak up… Stand up… Shut up… Wait… Listen…

But what’s done is DONE! Gone. Finished. Behind us.

Just like the morning mist on the valley creeping through to wake up the flowers for the day – each morning brings NEW opportunity to start fresh.

I wouldn’t trade today for 100 yesterday’s.

“His mercies are new everyday.” 



I sit and watch the Sunrise

A New Day

New Hope

New Determination

I face old sadness

Threatening to sneak in and take up residence

The uncertainty of today is enough to make me want to go back to bed

Under the covers it is warm and safe and certain

Nothing changes

There are no adventures

Life’s “what-ifs” are unwelcome guests and encourage me to stay hidden away

The light of dawn reminds me of the truth and beauty of all of “what-is”

New Determination

New Hope

A New Day

I sit and watch the Sunrise

“The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn,

That shines brighter and brighter until the full day.”

                                                                        Proverbs 4:18
