We Are Not Promised Tomorrow

 

I wrote this poem years ago when my own kids were young.  Two weeks ago when my son died—the words to this poem really gave me a special look at life and each day on this earth.  I encourage each and every one of you to take these words to heart and let the people in your life know how much they mean to you because our lives can be taken in an instant.

We are not promised tomorrow

or whatever it might bring.

We are only promised this moment

Yes, time is a fleeting thing.

Live your life for the present

Don’t waste your time in regret.

Do the best you can every moment

And thank God for every breath.

One day at a time is the way

We all should learn how to live.

Don’t harbor any grudges

Be quick and just to forgive.

For God gave His only son, Jesus

To pay the price for our sins..

No, we are not promised tomorrow

Time is a precious gift to man.
