Past, Present, Or Future?

In the final week of 2018, we look to the past. On New Year’s Eve, we gather to note a single moment as one year changes to the next. Once 2019 starts, we make resolutions for the future in the coming year.

Which do you prefer: the past, the present, or the future?

Share why if you wish.

  1. A letter a friend gave me many years ago:

    There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept from fear and apprehension.
    One of these days is Yesterday, with its mistakes and its cares, its aches and pains, its faults and blunders. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone.
    The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow, with its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promises and poor performance. Tomorrow is beyond our immediate control. Tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it WILL rise. Until it does we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.
    That leaves only one day – Today. Any man or woman by the grace of God, can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when we add the burdens of those two awful entities, Yesterday and Tomorrow, that we break down. It is not the experience of Today that drives men mad. It is remorse and bitterness for something that happened Yesterday, and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Let us, therefore, journey but one day at a time.

    Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that is why it is called the Present!
