The younger crowd writes about today. They share with the world what they “are” doing, the big things, the small things, their challenges, their victories and lots of daily details. The older crowd writes more about yesterday. They share with a select few what they “have” done and mostly it’s the bigger things. Young people say, “Some day I’m gonna…” but the older crowd says, “I remember when…”
When did it happen? When did my “some day I’m gonna,” turn into “I remember when?” I had a birthday this month and there is nothing like a year being added to your age. It makes you pause, ponder, and plan. Even though I am blessed with numerous “I remember whens…” I want to be sure and have lots of “some day I’m gonnas.”
Psalm 103:15-16, “As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. When the wind has passed over it, it is no more.”
Life is short. We must remember the past, live in today, and dream of tomorrow. Lord, teach us how to live.
