Today, I hope for my children the gift of aspiring to learn throughout their lifetime. Constantly holding to the promise of wisdom gained through listening intently to the whisper of the Creator of all things.
Tomorrow will come and I will be thankful in that moment, no matter the circumstance, holding to the joy given me by the LORD.
Yesterday is done. It will not return and I will not regret. Rather, I will savor the opportunity to learn from the past and determine to not mare my future with the mistakes thereof.
Today, is a new day, and I am thankful.
