For Yesterday is-but a dream, And Tomorrow Is only a vision But Today well lived makes Every Yesterday, a Dream of happiness, And every Tomorrow a Vision of Hope , Look well therefore to this dayl —Translated from the Sanskrit Today's Message "Forward — Day — by Day" book title that suggests an inspiring attitude, toward life. Like Saint Paul, we are to "press forward"— not content with present attainments. As we grow in'age we are to grow in grace, to go from strength to strength. This advance is to be made day 3y day, the only way it can be made. Rome was not built by day but by the day. Time is like a sandwich.. Yesterday and tomorrow are the outer parts, but the inner part—the spread— is today. Do not let the past and the future rob the present ] of it's important place in life. j Just as certain definite acts are necessary each day for the proper | care of the body, so the prope care of the soul demands regula daily attention.. Another day is a jrand new opportunity to use thi 'daily bread" God provides—thi Holy Bible, conscious fellowship in jrayer, meditation and sacra ment — to realize His power in our ives and to use the strength foi .he welfarj? of our feliowmen. Life begins anew as we awake to a new day. Let us honor each new da> vith a new and worthy task. —ROBERT E. GRIBBIN Former Bishop of Western N. C. Hobe Sound.
