Have You Earned Your Tomorrow

By Edgar Guest

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? This day is almost over, and its toiling time is through; Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along? Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng? Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way, Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast, That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Did you waste the day, or lose it, was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do you think that God would say, You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

While there’s, of course, no shortage of games to be played online, after a certain point, you’re bound to get bored of all those free games. Eventually, after a few hours, you’re going to need some new game options. Been there? Of course you have. But either way, we’re excited to share with you some of Google Doodle’s best games for one seriously fun night spent in the comfort and safety of your own home. For the record, if you’re not familiar with Google Doodles, it’s the illustrations that appear on the homepage of Google. 

 

What this also means is that all you’re going to need to play one (or all) of these epic games is an internet connection on either a computer or a phone (you’ll likely be tapping and swiping). They are all single player, and there’s no need for any fancy game console, set up or even downloading. What’s even more exciting however is that most of these games are over a decade old – so get ready for some serious nostalgia too! But enough of the build-up, what are these games that you can play? 

 

 

One of these games is the iconic Rubik’s Cube. It was first released on Google Doodle back in 2014, and it’s not exactly easy in all honesty to get the hang of moving the pieces around online, but it’s definitely a worthwhile challenge if you don’t have the real cube!  And then there’s always the Crossword Puzzle. Google Doodle celebrated the 100 year anniversary of the crossword in 2013 by releasing an online game, and we really couldn’t think of a better way to test your knowledge. But is there really such a thing as nostalgic games without Pac-Man?  Google Doodle, of course, also offers this classic game on its free platform, and in fact, did so a decade ago in order of the 30th anniversary of the arcade game.   We’re pretty sure that any boredom will now be now passed you.
