If I Have Tomorrow

Updated on June 3, 2012

If I Have Tomorrow

In the morning I'll call my friends,

I must call each and every one.

I'll ask each if they need any help,

Is there any job they want done.

If I have tomorrow.

I'll do all the things I have put off,

I'll say kind words I have not said.

Treat everyone a little different then,

I will help with the chores they dread.

If I have tomorrow.

I'll run errands for my neighbors,

Take food to one down the street,

Give a gift to a poor orphaned child,

I'll be kind to everyone that I meet.

If I have tomorrow.

I will call upon my dearest friend,

We'll chat of days long since past.

We'll take an hour on reminiscing,

Oh,how the time goes by so fast.

If I have tomorrow.

If I can sit down and relax awhile

That would make a happy day,

Mid dreams of things I would do.

I heard a small voice inward say

"You may not have tomorrow,"

I know that of my unselfish plans

These are things I should always do

The words that voice spoke to me

Are the words that I speak to you ,

"You may not have tomorrow!"


----------------------------------


I was watching a Christian program today

when these words came to me , as they

used to say"this is hot off the press.."

I was not planning on putting any more

poems on now.I will be off of here for

awhile .right now I am not sure how

long I will be off,I will still be writing

but it will be at home for awhile. I will

miss all of you and I appreciate all

of the nice comments that I had.

May God be with all of you,love,Clara

      With God, there's ALWAYS a tomorrow, in one place or another.

      He takes SPECIAL Care of such a one as Clara, a dear mother.

      Hello Elijah, thanks fore your comment ,I know there will be a tomorrow somewhere but I was just talking about here on earth . We don't know how long we will be here and we must do everything that we can here on earth to help get people to Jesus , Sometimes instead of helping we can mess things up .God gives me poems to write and I never know if it is doing any good ,if it is really reaching any hearts , I guess God is the only wants that knows that, I will be off of here and I don't know when I will be back on ,the best to you always. love ,Clara

      Amen Clara...

      God ALWAYS takes ANY mistakes WE make (as True Christians) and TURNS THEM AROUND For His Good Purpose - Amen †

      Because of THIS :

      Hi Elijah,

      It is a good thing that He does because I make a lot of them sometimes,Especially now,between the computer and my eyes I make a lot of them. I think I spend more time on mistakes than writing the poems Thanks for your comments now , I'll be back sometime ,God Willing. love, Clara

      Dearest Clar, this is such a beautiful poem, as all your work is beautiful! I will miss reading your beautiful poems glorifying our Lord. Our pastor just happened to preach on this very subject, that we are only here for a short while, and we may not have a tomorrow.

      In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hello Faith, it is good to hear from you .I just got back on last night after a period of having cataract surgery on both eyes and trying to get caught up on some things that really needed done around here. I went back to the doctor yesterday and he said that I have 20/20 vision. I am so glad to be able to see good again. Hope you enjoy the new poems that I will be putting on here. Love, clara
