Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

An American road sign with sky background and Yesterday Today and Tomorrow signs
Only today counts

There are two days in every week that we should not worry about, two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One is yesterday with its mistakes and cares.

The 23rd Psalm

A bible on white opened up to the 23rd Palm

A Sunday school teacher asked her class if anyone could quote the entire 23rd Psalm. A golden-haired, four-and-a-half-year-old girl was among those who raised their hands.

Flowers on a tombstone in a cemetery with headstones in the background

Our church was saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valued members, Someone Else. Someone’s passing creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Else has been with us for many years and for every one of those years, Someone Else did far more than a normal person’s share of the work. Whenever there was a job

So often we look for a job that is meaningful, as if meaningful can

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood.

Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.” Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry,
