This day is the only day
We have in the here and now,
So it’s important to find a way
To make a difference somehow.
Yesterday is already past,
What is done cannot be undone,
And future days which arrive so fast
Must be taken one by one.
Spending your time looking ahead
Or reliving what happened before
May fill you with a sense of dread
Or regret, when there could be much more.
Discover beauty each day you live,
Find the gift that’s waiting for you,
Soak in the love that God has to give,
Offer thanks in all that you do.
