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?

If you ever thought that LEGO was just for kids, well then you are clearly very, very mistaken. But we’ll forgive you, because you probably also have yet to encounter everything that the iconic company has to offer, such as the fact that you can build one seriously realistic-looking space shuttle, or even create a three-dimensional treehouse to put up on display in your home. So please let go of this notion that LEGO is just for kids once and for all, and start to enjoy everything that these epic adult sets have to offer!  You’ve surely stuck at home now anyway, right? 

 

There’s literally an endless variety of LEGO sets made especially for adults that cover all kinds of subjects and styles – ensuring that no matter what your taste and preferences are, there’s something for everyone. Those that love nature can build all kinds of stunning wonders such as trees and birds. And for those that are more into architecture can make scenic skylines and towers. Those that are serious pop culture fans can choose special themes from their favorite shows such as Star Wars to build LEGO figurines.  After all, the whole fun of LEGO is the ability to display your work afterward, although the process and challenge surely is fun too!
