Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret. Regrets are often expressed in terms of paths not taken, things not said, and time not spent letting people know how much you love them. So for the times I could have spent in the company of people I love but did other things instead, I have regrets.
For the times that people I love guided me through rough waters—your love and guidance made/make my rough waters calm. I am grateful beyond measure. I do NOT regret the times I spent with priorities well placed. The love I have experienced is priceless. You are my touchstones.

You are my touchstones

    Kate, that’s a great take on the theme “Regret”
    Yes we tend to regret paths not taken … we have those “IF” moments…
    when we think “what if I had done this and not that”

    nice interpretation

  3. I can’t pass by without saying how sorry I am to hear about your cousin’s son. How truly tragic, and it does make your thoughts on regret extremely poignant. May God grant comfort to the whole family. Debra

  4. Excellent photo challenge for regret. I know it is about pictures but I love your words.

    Regret rears its ugly head long after forgiveness happens. Sins are forgiven but regret happens whenever consequences remind us of the sin. That’s when we lean on Jesus and remind ourselves that He is with us always. Even through regret. Thanks Kate. God Bless! Mike

    Regret is such an easy trap to fall into, especially if we are living with its consequences. It’s also much easier to move on when you’ve made it a habit of setting your priorities better. Well said!

      Nancy—exactly right. When we know we have “left it all on the field” we only have a few residual regrets….we can move on…determined to do even more the next time, right? Thanks for your kind words.

  8. You are right. The biggest regrets are the things we haven’t done, the time we haven’t spent and the love we haven’t expressed.
    I like your touchstones.
