There Will Come a Day

There will come a day when you will no longer be able to dance. So kick up your heels, laugh with abandon, and give your body up to the heavenly music that even now bursts forth from your soul in celebratory song.

There will come a day when the troubles that now occupy your mind will seem as insignificant as the whisper of the wind. So close your eyes and view today’s challenges through the prism of your future wisdom.

There will come a day when those whom you cherish will be beyond the reach of your hungry arms. So gather your loved ones close and gaze at them with gladness in your heart and a devout appreciation of the endless grace that has delivered them into your life.

There will come a day when death ceases to lurk on the outskirts of your dreams and instead becomes the dearest of friends. So pour yourself fully into the present moment and set your spirit free to soar before daylight gives way to the setting sun.

Travelers, it is late. Life’s sun is going to set. During these brief days that you have strength, be quick and spare no effort of your wings.

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, savor you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky, and want more than all the world your return. And then I will know what now I am guessing: that you are, indeed, a common rock and not a jewel, but that a common rock made of the very mass substance of the earth in all its strength and plenty puts a gem to shame.
Mary Jean Irion

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?

Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.

sixty-seconds-coverPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed. The roster of storytellers includes Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Caroline Myss, Larry Dossey, Rachel Naomi Remen, Bernie Siegel, Dean Ornish, and Christiane Northrup. Sixty Seconds has been translated into four languages: Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Reading this book is like spending a few minutes face to face with each of the contributors and listening to their personal stories.

  1. Kate Says:

    Beautiful. And so true.

  2. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Thank you, Kate. You are beautiful and so true as well.

  3. ArrVee Says:

    we should know that we are much much more that our physical bodies define, as we will leave these behind and continue on. We should not base our self-esteem on our physical appearance or limitations, but must strive to appreciate and develop that inner light in us. As well, we should know that we all have the power to lift our spirits above the turmoil, drudgery and disappointments of this world. The matters of this world are temporary, but our spirit is now and forever, so why wait to die to experience our spiritual beauty and power?

  4. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Couldn’t agree more, ArrVee. Thanks for weighing in.

  5. Harriet Says:

    To live in the moment, is a lesson to be practiced. Neil’s untimely death proved to me, yet again, that we must live every day as though it were our last. Thanks for the reminders.

    You’re very welcome, Harriet. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

  13. Vivian Says:

    a favorite poem of mine I discovered after writing GOOD MOURNING:

    To see a world in a grain of sand
    and heaven in a wild flower.
    Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
    and eternity in an hour. — William Blake

    and from GOOD MOURNING, What Death Teaches Us About Life
    “The song of the sea does not end at the shore.”–Vivian Greene

  14. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Thank you, Vivian. Poetry has a very special power to it.
