Tomorrow's Burdens

"Don't Carry The Burdens Of Tomorrow"

God broke our years into hours and days,
That hour by hour, day by day,
Just going on a little way,
We might be able, all along,
To keep quite strong.

Should all the weight of life be laid
Across our shoulders at just one place,
And the future, rife with woe and struggle,
Meet us face to face:
We could not go;
Our feet would stop, and so
God LAYS A LITTLE ON US EVERY DAY.

And never, I believe, in all life's way,
Will burdens bear so deep,
Or pathways lie so steep,
But we can go, if, by God's power,
We ONLY BEAR THE BURDEN OF THE HOUR.

I wish I knew who the author was for the above poem. If you do, please let me know!

Psalm 118:24 This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.


Strive to enjoy something about each day!

My husband was diagnosed, several years ago, with renal failure. It was a 9 year journey to doctors, hospitals, and dialysis clinics. His kidneys were so diseased that they removed them six months before they would find a kidney to match for a transplant. It was a difficult journey for us and our family! We celebrated his 60th birthday recently and I am thanking God for His goodness and grace. Below is a picture I took of him in Savannah, Georgia. He is enjoying a Latte at the park where they filmed Forest Gump sitting with a box of chocolates saying, "My mama always said ~ Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get."
