Examples of presently in a Sentence

  1. Garrett Zans:

    I love Wyoming and have considered living here after graduation, for many people, this decision would be made based on factors such as employment opportunities and proximity to family and friends.

  3. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    You might be clothless presently, but you shouldn't be hopeless. Also, you might be homeless, but you shouldn't be hopeless. As well, you might be foodless presently but, don't be hopeless. Perhaps, you might be helpless currently, but never become hopeless. You might even be perplexed currently, but never become hopeless. At worst, you might have lost everything you've acquired over the years, but never lose hope. Because, hope is always available when everything else has gone. Thus, cling to it (hope) for life and never let go of it. I mean, dare to hope against (all) hope i.e. be and remain hopeful even when your situation seems hopeless. ~Emeasoba George.

  4. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    The scripture says in (1st Peter 1:24 ) all humans are like grass and all their glory is like the flowers in the field, the flowers fade and the grass withers eventually. Now, are you beautiful or handsome? If yes then, take note of this, never be carried away by your beauty or handsomeness. For, you will sooner or later grow old and consequently your beauty or handsomeness will fade away. Moreover, are you intelligent, rich or wealthy presently? If yes, then listen up, never be carried away by your intelligence, riches or wealth. Because, you can't live forever and you won't keep on enjoying your life of affluence or luxury forever. I mean, you will surely leave your riches or wealth behind someday. Anyway, this is not meant to scare you, so don't be scared. I'm just realistic, because I'm a realist and that's why I'm admonishing you. Thus, take heed of my admonitions or rather pay attention to my admonitions. ~Emeasoba George

  5. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Life per se is an opportunity. And so, it is advisable and encouraging to give it all you've got now that you still have the chance. In other words, live your life to the fullest (make full use of whatever that life offers you daily) now that you are still alive. For, no matter who you are presently, you will be gone someday (mark you). ~Emeasoba George
