This is A Day of New Beginnings, part 6

September 9, 2019

“Yesterday.”

Someone reading that one word followed it with the rest of the opening line of a classic Beatles song.

“Tomorrow.”

And someone reading that word followed it with a couple of lines from a Broadway musical that became a movie that’s a staple of many drama departments.

“Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away; now it looks as though they’re here to stay.”

“Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I love you, Tomorrow! You’re only a day away!”

Meanwhile, right here between Yesterday and Tomorrow —

This [is] the day Jehovah hath made,

We rejoice and are glad in it.

That’s how Young’s Literal Bible translates Psalm 118:24. I like the blunt simplicity of “We rejoice and are glad in it.” No room there for a yawn, and no time to consider if we even feel like rejoicing or not today:

WE

ARE

GLAD.

— Today…”we are glad.”

To quote the late Walter Cronkite, “…and that’s the way it is.”

For some of us then, this is profoundly A Day of New Beginnings!

And “we are glad.”
