One Question Friday

























Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.





It is my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.












The question…


Yesterday or Tomorrow?

  1. Both. Because I so treasure my yesterdays, but live on faith that my tomorrows will be full and blessed. Both are important.

  2. Oh my goodnes, Wendy. You must spend hours finding these exquisite photos. Great job! Love the tug-owar one.

    Tomorrow. Because it's filled with hope and promise. There is nothing we can do about yesterday...

  6. Yesterday: I don't live in the past, but as one of my professors just said..."without knowing where we've been, we won't ever know where we're going."

  7. "We can't amputate our history from our destiny."
    ---Beth Moore

    The root of our past and future is the same and that root is Jesus. Good question!

  8. Wendy, LOVE your blog, which always makes me feel at home.
    I too LOVE Jodi Picoult's novels, which have a wonderful structure to study. Now I'm reading Plain Truth. We'll have to compare notes!

    Oh. Your question. See, I am singing a new song....Definitely TOMORROW!!! Keep persevering, perfecting, with the Holy Spirit's help, on the road to Eternity!!1

  9. some great responses here. As far as I am concerned Tomorrow is all I have to look forward to and is what I can control to a greater extent. Yesterday is the foundation upon which tomorrow is built and shapes how I make my decisions, but I can't change yesterday so I shouldn't let it control me.

  10. Tomorrow: because there's always hope for a brighter future.

    Yesterday: because of memories and lessons learned.

    Happy Weekend, friend,
    Jen

  11. Beautiful pics here today. Thoughtful and lovely. I'll say tomorrow. It's the only thing we can change or improve upon.

    but - what about today? that's the choice I'd really like to make.

  14. Tomorrow! What is done is done and I did the best I could with God's help. Tomorrow is always an exciting thought for me. God said " Forgetting what is behind...I'm pressing on. Love your blog and your questions. Clella of kindred heart writers

  15. What? No today? I like today because in today, I can remember yesterday and prepare for tomorrow. Love the lessons from the past and the hope of the future.

  16. Heaven is ahead of us. God has prepared things for us that we cannot imagine. So it has to be tomorrow!

    I hope you'll stop by The Moonboat and give me your snow stats. I want to know about the weather around all my bloggy friends.

  17. Tomorrows! Yesterday is painful but tomorrow is hopeful. :-)

  18. Neither - I'm trying to stay more in the Present.

  19. Tomorrow. I will never surrender my tomorrows, because I always want to have the freedom to hope.

  20. Tomorrow - "everday is a new day with no mistakes in it ... yet" :) (Anne of Green Gables)

  21. Tomorrow- because it holds promise.

    Yesterday- because we can glimpse back and see how God has helped us through.

  22. Tomorrow, because in my experience holding onto Yesterday just causes too much pain for myself and others.

  23. Oh, and I have another award waiting for you on my blog! :)

  24. definitely tomorrow. Yesterday hurt too much... Today I know God and His amazing love so every tomorrow is an adventure. Yesterday was a fight to survive.

  25. Tomorrow for sure. But unfortunately it's usually tinged with worry -- I'm a big worry about tomorrow girl.

  27. Boy, I can't answer this one without some divine assistance. I love them both!

    So I'll say, since He's the same -- yesterday, today, and tomorrow -- I'm going to live in Him! That should take care of it -- He'll balance it out for me.
