Never Before, Never Again


Time has just given birth to a new day.

A day never before seen with human eyes.

A day that will never again be repeated.

Fresh, innocent, unmarred.

Ripe with possibility.

Full of purpose just waiting to be displayed.

It yawns and stretches in anticipation of all it has to offer.

And then with eyes full of wonder and promise, it smiles and extends its hand.

“Come join me!”  it says.  “Adventure awaits!”

This day does not know the trouble of Yesterday or the fear of Tomorrow.

It is only familiar with the present.

It will soon be gone.

So it doesn’t worry.  It doesn’t regret.

It just lives fully the 24 hours between its birth and demise.

Ready.  Willing.  Hopeful.

Eyes wide open, not wanting to miss a thing.

Why would I not want to grasp that outstretched hand and squeeze?

How could I resist the twinkle in its eye, the grin on its waking face?

Your today and its adventure awaits….

Psalm 118:24 – This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Matthew 6:34 – Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. 

Isaiah 43:18-19 – “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
