WRITING THE EULOGY

We reconstruct images of yesterday
and of tomorrow, we relive our
successes and our sorrows,
we forecast our tomorrows
upon what has been,
reliving our virtues,
recalling our sins.

Concerning this practice Paul
had something to say,
"Leaving that which is behind
we press forward,
toward that which is holy
in actions and mind."
We complicate our life
and make a mess of our way
forecasting tomorrows upon
recalled yesterdays: but the
truth is that there is only TODAY.

Yesterday may be somewhere
but it's irretrievable. Tomorrow
cannot be lived, it is not
receivable; for when today is
finished tomorrow has not arrived;
it is once again today, it has always
been that way, and every deed we've
done is forever locked in yesterday.
Yesterday indelibly holds our history
refusing to release us, to set us free.

But in all reality there is only TODAY
for you, and only TODAY for me,
and in each moment that we live
we form the life that becomes
our history, and that is a serious
thing to consider because when no
more days arrive we will then
give to God an account of how
we lived our lives.

Yesterday and tomorrow
are impossible to control,
but TODAY we may choose
the things that we do;
and when today becomes
yesterday, will we have written
within its history activities that
create for those who hear and see,
an inspiring and comforting eulogy?

And then, more serious to consider
is when before God
we stand, and over the pages of our life
He scans, will He be able to find
that particular moment that we
asked of Jesus our Savior to be?
We are each one Writers of our History
and the Deciders of where we will reside
throughout Eternity.

Today, if you hear His voice, respond.
"Today is the day for Salvation."
