Sep 3, 2012 - Ponderin'    Comments Off on Regrets


Old Blue Eyes sang, “Regrets, I’ve had a few but then again too few to mention.”

Regrets are scratchy name tags in the back of a shirt irritating the nape of your neck.

Regrets are bitter pills  stuck in your throat dissolving so slowly.

Regrets are a  “forgive  me” or “I’m sorry” never said to one now gone.

Regrets are “You never mentioned Him to me” or “knowing to do good and doing it not”.

Regrets are wasted years and failing to serve Jesus in your young  days.

Regrets are neglected   children, now grown —- or ignored elderly parents now dead.

Treating our family with consideration and love today, being a good neighbor today, dealing fairly with our fellow man today,  serving Jesus today is  “preventable regret” — easy to live with — and so easy to die with.
