When you can think of yesterday without regret and tomorrow without fear, you are near contentment.

Yesterday’s Treasures

There is beauty in the turn of every season and knowledge within each of life’s transitions.

Just as each season of the year has its own color of light, each season of life will shine its beautiful light upon the soul. Open the eyes of your heart. Enjoy the splendor.

Each spring shower, summer storm, falling autumn leaf, and icy winter wind is necessary to complete the portrait of its season. Likewise, each human trial is necessary to teach, build resilience, strengthen faith, and guide you forward.

Every yesterday holds treasures, sometimes concealed by hurt, misfortune, and disappointment. Nevertheless, if you stay alert, you will discover blessings you would not have known had you not lived through darker days. All events affect your tomorrows; their lessons ripple through time like love spreading from parent to child to grandchild.

What treasures could you find within the clouds that surround you today? How will you view this day in a way that will benefit others and you?

Rest assured, each event, circumstance, and person you encounter blesses you. Each brings a rainbow of beauty and immeasurable value, a gift to help guide you along the path of your life’s purpose.

Say a prayer of thanksgiving today for yesterday’s treasures.
