Ecclesiastes 7:10 Say not thou, what is the cause that the former days were better than these? Jeremiah 17:5-6 A cursed man shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh. Often we attempt to re-package our memories to make them good or better. We miss the good ol' days quite often because we were too busy complaining or planning for the future and failed to be in the now. My sister is usually AWOL even when she is present; her famous words after the fact are-where was I when that was being discussed or decided. I believe that it is OK to acknowledge the situation or state without complaining about it. We must fight to get into the now [Hebrews 11:1] Reflect on the past a little, but stay in the now.
