"With Every Rising of the Sun..."

Amy Lane Photography ©2015

"With every rising of the sun
Think of your life as just begun.
~
The past has shriveled and buried deep,
All yesterdays. There let them sleep.
~
Nor seek to summon back one ghost
Of that innumerable host.
~
Concern yourself with but to-day,
Woo it, and teach it to obey
~
Your will and wish. Since time began
To-day has been the friend of man;
~
But in his blindness and his sorrow
He looks to yesterday and to-morrow."

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
