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?

The world is constantly evolving, and so many things make life easier today, such as cars, cellphones, and computers. However, have you ever wondered what these things looked like when they first made their debut to the world? Things from the past don’t look quite the same as they do today, and if you want to know what the very first McDonald’s or bikini looked like, keep reading.  Here are some interesting photographs of the world’s very first things.


Coca-Cola was created by a pharmacist from Atlanta in 1886, and the world hasn’t been the same ever since. Today, coke and diet coke are the two most popular sodas sold in the United States. Interestingly, this bottle has written directions on it of how to pour yourself a glass. Today it’s a famous soft drink, but back then, this bottle just contained syrup.
