Allen Peterson Obituary

Life Reflections

I don’t know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day.  I don’t borrow from its sunshine, for its skies may turn to gray. I don’t worry over the future, for I know what Jesus said. And today I’ll walk beside him, for he know what is ahead. Many things about tomorrow, I don’t understand; but I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand.
