I gave the Lord my yesterdays.
That’s what His love demands.
I gave Him my tomorrows.
They’re safe within His hands.
My past mistakes, regrets, and fears
He’s taken all away.
In exchange He gave to me
A precious, brand-new day.
—Marcia Mollenkopf, Klamath Falls, Oregon

Adventist Life
Our 3-year-old granddaughter was playing in the bathtub and called to her mother to look at something. Mom answered, “Just a minute.”

What learning takes place in even the youngest children when exposed to family worship and weekly Sabbath school! Victoria immediately sang, “When Victoria says ‘Come here,’ who comes running, who comes running? When Victoria says ‘Come here,’ all the little mommies come running!”
—Judy Thomsen, Columbia, Maryland

My 6-year-old niece was telling me that a rebel was “cool.” I explained to her that a rebel is one who does what he is not supposed to do. Understanding dawned, and she replied, “Well, Satan would think that’s cool!”
—Tonda Snoey, Apison, Tennessee
