This is the Day

Every where I turn there seems to be the message of the importance of the now, of the immediacy of the present choices.

I know I still miss a large percentage of the opportunities but I feel if I keep proclaiming this truth in all the ways I can see it

then each day I will perceive more and have the grace to live as I learn.

This is the Day


Not too late now but it will be tomorrow

to do what was ordained for today.

The rose won’t be the same bloom,

the moonrise not in the same sky.

That secret your child wants to share,

that hand longing to be clasped,

the words of affirmation needing to be heard.

None of it will be the same tomorrow.

“This is the day the Lord has made…”
