Sunday Scribblings # – Regrets
Do I have any regrets? I don’t think I have.
Ive done plenty of things I’m sorry for… but by an large, I have said sorry.
There are many things I wish I could have done, or done differently, but then my life would have taken different turns and I wouldn’t be here. And I like here.
And for all the difficulties and worries in my life, I am very thankful for all that I have. All that I have become.
Because each choice, each happening in my past has brought me here.
I know not everyone reading this post will have a religious belief, but for me, i concur with Joshua in the Bible who said “as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord”
I am grateful to God for taking hold of my life, for using each circumstance whether good or bad, to bring me to the place I now stand.
It is this viewpoint on life which brings me peace in difficult times and a sense of contentment even when life is not all it might be.
I may not have married till 34, but I’m thankful for the good husband I have.
We may have debt partly due to the mistakes I made in the past, but I’m thankful that we are learning to use less of the worlds precious resources.
I may never be able to have children, but I’m thankful that if that day is realised, we will instead have more time to love others.
I could have many regrets but God has turned each one into hope.
