The past is the past, it is over with, it is finished. I am headed toward my future, not looking back, looking forward. The present is called the present, for a reason, it is a gift that we are daily given. We should wake up each morning, unwrap the blessing, of the new present, the new day that we are given, and fall to our knees, and thank God. Also, thank God for the past, for it lead us to this precious new beginning.
