Letter O is for One...

.....One Day at a Time

Some days....

I get troubled....and I get to thinking, I can’t do this; it is just too hard.

I wonder did I hear you right; are you sure this was the door I was to walk through?

It is then that He gently whispers to me……..

One day at a time.”

I just ask you to take one day at a time.

One day, this day.


Not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year,

only today.

I give you grace. I give you mercy. I give you strength

for today.


Today is a gift.

I didn’t give you today so that you could worry about tomorrow.

Tomorrow’s worries will have tomorrows grace.


So enjoy,

the gifts that I have for you. Enjoy all that I have for you today.

Can you handle one day?

Do you remember?

If you forgot, the words are on your Ten Dollar Bill
(if you are Canadian)

I had to look for myself but there it was on the back in really tiny print, the first verse of In Flanders fields.

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row by row,
That mark our place and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below."
~John McCrae 1872 - 1918

For the complete poem you can go to In Flanders Fields on Wikipedia, the Free Encylopedia.

Thank-you Veterans!
