Today’s post comes from a planner I had and I couldn’t help but think of a better and more fitting time to share it. It’s definitely something to think about at the end of the day. And most certainly as you age and find time passing you by.
As you read through it, I hope it touches you the way it did me. Let me know your thoughts at the end, below. If it says nothing else, I hope you at least get that each new day you have, is a chance for you do do better than you did yesterday. Enjoy the read!
Is anybody happier because you passed his way?
Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today?
The day is almost over, and its toiling time is through;
Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?
Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that’s slipping fast, that you helped a single brother of the many that you passed?
Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said?
Does the man whose hopes were fading, now with courage look ahead?
Did you waste the day, or lose it? Was it well or sorely spent?
Did you leave a trail of kindness, or a scar of discontent?
As you close your eyes in slumber, do you think that God will say, “You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today”?
