He said, “I’ll get to that tomorrow.” But tomorrow never came…not for him at least. Don’t be that person.
As I’ve been doing lately, I went through another one of my old lyrics notebooks and found some more I’d like to share with you. And I’ll add a story to go along with ’em if you don’t mind. Well, even if you do mind (he said with a smile on his face).
Even though you will…and we all do…don’t take anything for granted. I’m telling myself that, too, because I’m just like you. I’m a human being who doesn’t think about many of the tiny things most of the time. Things like the sounds of birds in the trees. Or the scents of flowers in the park. Or the feel of the wind in my hair on a mid-March day.
In a way it’s good to be able to take them for granted. It means we enjoy enough freedom to do so. But don’t think, for a moment, that’s a permanent condition. Your freedom isn’t any more permanent than your life. What if, for example, you said you’d wait and kiss your sweetheart tomorrow, but tomorrow never came for your sweetheart because of some tragic accident? Think how much you might dwell on how you took your relationship for granted. And think about how much that would haunt you for the rest of your days.
As important it is to tell your loved ones you love them, it’s even more important to consider where you’ll spend eternity. If I’m wrong, and eternity doesn’t exist, you can simply disregard this next part. But I don’t believe I’m wrong, so pay attention…
…you will either LIVE forever…or you’ll simply exist forever. The difference all rests on the most important choice you can make. And the choice you make is based on one question. Did God create the world or did the world create itself?
Find out as much as you can about science, math, history, and love. Apply what you discover to what your five senses and your intellect can tell you. Don’t wake up one day with the awful realization that tomorrow never came to you.
In Faith, Hope, and Love…
