"It Was Just Yesterday"

I  watched the horizon absorb the sun; then came sadness this day is through.

Though it seemed this day an endurance run; it left so quickly as the morning dew.

Yesterday, through the woods I quickly ran, and jumped ditch and fence without delay.

I was loving life with all its goods but somewhere it happened; my hair turned gray.

Life was a book with seemingly no end; with a family young, and time did blend.

It happened so quickly I hardly knew, yet with many tomorrows I did defend.

Each meal we shared, life's' stitches were sewn, and through it all our family grew.

The moments shared and tears shed, were investments made never to come due.

Then as the scent of warm fresh summer rain so is life a warm wind that has blown.

Often the melody seemed quite hard to play but I've shared love and life I've known.

Is life too short or is life too long or does life quickly end on some tomorrow?

The days more quickly pass as we watch another sunset with no time today to borrow.

I yearn for voices sweet but that was life that I have shared and goes the day.

Though no more ditch nor fence to jump I still recall it all as it was just yesterday.

Written by Robert D. "Bob" Wood

 Job 8:7 Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.
8. For inquire, I pray thee, of the former age, and prepare thyself to the search of their fathers:
9. (For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow:)

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

James 4:  14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.


I watch youth today with tension and drama and it takes hardly any to declare their life is ruined.  It is true that this day cannot be recalled but the valleys today give more vision and more strength for that mountain just ahead.  Today is not the worst day of your life nor is it the best because God has much planned with you in mind before this life is through.  Today it's ok to laugh., to cry, to sit silently, to be sad or to be happy but grasp each moment and live it as it were your last.  This gift of love is not meant to be buried or hidden away but to share it with those you know and love.  Keep Shining and be as good as you can be, and when you have a chance; you pray for me!  God is good in sad times and in happy times.  God is good all the time!
