THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW DAY.
GOD HAS GIVEN ME THIS DAY TO USE AS I WILL.
I CAN WASTE IT OR USE IT FOR GOOD.
WHAT I DO TODAY IS VERY IMPORTANT
BECAUSE I AM EXCHANGING A DAY OF MY LIFE FOR IT.
WHEN TOMORROW COMES, THIS DAY WILL BE GONE FOREVER.
LEAVING SOMETHING IN IT’S PLACE I HAVE TRADED FOR IT.
I WANT IT TO BE A GAIN, NOT LOSS-GOOD, NOT EVIL.
SUCCESS, NOT FAILURE, IN ORDER THAT
I SHALL NOT FORGET THE PRICE I PAID FOR IT.
-PAUL WILLIAM BRYANT SR.
I keep this on my desk at work as a reminder of the value of life and each and every day of it. Good to see you post it.
Some things are worth speaking louder than others, RTR!!
I dated a barner once, she had other nice qualities - yeah I know right but true non the less....she took the time and had this very quote put into a little plastic cover and I keep it in my wallet every day.
Just for the record, that is a poem that Coach Bryant reportedly carried with him in his wallet. You are attributing it to him as though he wrote it or came up with it which is not accurate.
You are right though, it never gets old.
Yep....Good stuff still
Thanks for posting....good stuff!
Not sure Bear was the author of that but is great nonetheless
I have this printed out and posted on my wall in the tent I sleep in,here in Afghanistan. I read it every morning as I leave the tent to start my day.
God Bless you and your family, and thank you for service!
Thank you for what you do for us back in the States!
This Bryant quote always reminded me of the following passage of scripture...
Ephesians 5:15 - Be very careful, then, how you live, not as unwise but as wise, 16 - making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 - Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
God be with you crazy horse. Stay safe.
