Regrets Tuesday of the First Week of Advent Countdown to Christmas

From a Facebook post on Monday evening. That got me to thinking about the end of the year and how we regret what we have not accomplished, would have done, might have done, should have done and it is one huge waste of time;

Here is the Facebook post:

Since this year is coming to an end soon, do you ladies have any regrets?

My reply:

Regrets, what do I have to say about regrets?  Do I have them, you got a few weeks to hear my regrets?  No?  Didn’t think so.  So here is what God says about regrets: For get about them!  What good does it do to pull all those things out of the past to look at them now?  Nothing. Nada. Zip.

The past is the past and nothing we can do will ever change what happened in it.  Regrets are mistakes we wish we had not done.  And what do you do with mistakes?  You learn from them.  Take the lesson and move on
