I’m a live for today kind of guy, and that hasn’t always been a good thing. In my younger days—most of my life actually—I lived life like there was no tomorrow. It was full speed ahead and dodging torpedoes. But since I’ve realized how much God loves me—and He loved me even when I didn’t know it—I live for today in a different way.
Nowadays, I live for today simply because today is all there is; until tomorrow, and today or tomorrow can’t be enjoyed if we’re busy lamenting yesterday. Life is not the proverbial bowl of cherries; it is what it is, and sometimes it’s the pits. But from the cherry pit comes the cherry tree and cherry blossom, and from the blossom comes the cherry. (Charlie loves cherries!)
Our world revolves around the sun, and the seasons come and go. The rain will come, but the sun will also shine. Winter gives way to spring, and brutal summers relent to cool crisp fall. Each is good in its own way, and bad in another, but when all is said and done, all things are necessary, and it’s all good!
For, behold, the winter is past. The rain is over and gone. Song of Solomon 2:11
