Tomorrow is Today

Watercolor-aged-womanWhat if tomorrow never comes?  How will I live today? Words kept flowing through my mind as I walked the familiar path home from Church after my prayer yesterday….

I would wake up earlier than ever to catch the first ray of sunlight that brightens the day

I would look out for the morning sunbird that chirps happily as it feeds on the nectar from our yellow bell plants

I would watch as the wind blows the dried leaves rustling past me and try to catch the leaves as they fall

I would throw off my sandals, feel the soft grass under my feet and run freely on the fields

I would gaze into the sky, see the clouds roll by and be filled with awe by the One up there

I would listen and try to make sense of the multitude of noises that surround me

I would yearn to hear the Voice of the One who called me by name

I would whisper more ‘I love you’ as I gaze tenderly upon the faces of the ones I love

I would stretch out my hands to hold and hug those who have walked with me along the path of my life

Yes, when there is no tomorrow, i would have lived differently today.

My 90 year old mother-in-law, who is wheelchair-bound, living in a nursing home, would have yearned to live differently too.                    By R

“So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”    Matt 6:34  (NASB)
