is always that.
you can plan, you can prepare.
what you get in the end is, now.
today's work, worry, love, soup, bad-hair-day, good-hair-day, heartache, happiness - rain or shine.
sometimes, no matter how you prepare - the future is different than the forecast.
sometimes you are dead on, and you swell with the pride of all the Scouts gone before at your preparedness.
But none of this changes this Truth: that what you have is present, what you have is now, what you have is from Him: the Good and Gracious and Mighty, who is here, who holds all together - as futures flood into nows.
