"If Tomorrow Never Comes"  ? 

Author unknown

    
If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep, 
I would tuck you in more tightly 
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep, 
                           
 If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door,
 I would give you a hug and kiss 
and call you back for one more. 
If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise, 
I would video tape each action and word, 
so I could play them back day after day. 
                                           
If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute two 
To stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming, you would KNOW I do. 
                           
                           
If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, 
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more, 
so I can let just this one slip away. 
                          
For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, 
and we always get a second chance to make everything right. 
                           
There will always be another day to say our "I love you" 's, 
And certainly there's another chance to say our 
"Anything I can do" 's? 
                           
But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, 
I'd like to say how much I love you 
and I hope we never forget, 
                     
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, 
And today may be the last chance you get 
to hold your loved one tight.. 
                           
So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? 
For if tomorrow never comes, 
you'll surely regret the day, 
That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss 
And you were too busy to grant someone, 
what turned out to be their one last wish. 
                           
So hold your loved ones close today, 
whisper in their ear, 
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear, 
                           
Take time to say 
"I'm sorry," 
"please forgive me," 
"thank you" or 
"it's okay". 
And if tomorrow never comes, 
you'll have no regrets about today.

--Bible Verses to Ponder--

James 4:13-17
Look here, you people who say, 
"Today or tomorrow we are going to such and such a town, 
stay there a year, and open up a profitable business."
How do you know what is going to happen tomorrow?
 For the length of your lives is as uncertain as the morning fog--
now you see it; soon it is gone.

What you ought to say is, 
"If the Lord wants us to, we shall live and do this or that."
Otherwise you will be bragging about your own plans,
 and such self-confidence never pleases God.
Remember, too, that knowing what is right to do 
and then not doing it is sin. 

Prov 27:1 
Boast not thyself of to morrow; 
for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.

Luke 12:16-21 (KJV) 
And Jesus  spake a parable unto them, saying,
 The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 
{17} And he thought within himself, saying, 
What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
 {18} And he said, This will I do:
 I will pull down my barns, and build greater; 
and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. 
{19} And I will say to my soul, 
Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; 
take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 

{20} But God said unto him, 
Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: 
then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 
{21} So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, 
and is not rich toward God.

Psa 95:6-8 
O come, let us worship and bow down: 
let us kneel before the LORD our maker. 
{7} For he is our God; 
and we are the people of his pasture, 
and the sheep of his hand. 
To day if ye will hear his voice, 
{8} Harden not your heart, as in the provocation,
 and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

 2 Cor 6:2b
For he saith, ......behold, now is the accepted time; 
behold, now is the day of salvation.
