What am I to do? I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good work, therefore, any kindness, or any service I can render to any soul of man or animal, let me do it now. Let me not neglect or defer it, for I shall not pass this way again.
–An old Quaker saying
I was reading in Ruth Cowan’s Streams in the Desert, vol 1 today when I came across tomorrow’s devotional reading. A little poem follows that I will not quote in its entirety here but its premise is that our most bitter regrets at the end will be those things we knew to do but that we left undone
It isn’t the thing you do, dear,
It’s the thing you leave undone,
Which gives you the bitter heartache
At the setting of the sun;
It’s a good challenge. What does your hand find to do today? 🙂
