My Wish List

You know how a lot of people have a wish list....of things that they want to buy....or get accomplished?
Well....I've come up with a bit of a different wish here goes:

I wish.....

....that I could look back over my life and not have any regrets.

....that I could get young mothers to understand that the years that seem so troublesome right now.....will become a distant memory all too soon.

....that I had taken better care of my body starting at about age 30....instead of thinking that age 55 I'm gonna "get in shape"!!!

....that I could explain to young people that so many of the things they worry about....more than likely won't even happen.  And....that they need to quit thinking that their entire life depends on whether they have a boyfriend, or girlfriend!!!

....that I had listened to Pappy....and the Lord....and quit my full-time job long before I did.
(actually that I had listened to Pappy concerning a lot of things....shhhh....don't tell him, though!!)

....that I hadn't placed so much emphasis all my life on what others think....and placed more importance on pleasing my precious Savior.

....that many years ago....when I graduated with honors from my high school class....that I had completed my education in a field that would have helped me to better serve the Lord.

....that I wouldn't let the devil convince me that when I say, or do something....that the Lord has laid on my heart....that I was in the wrong.
(please tell me that I'm not the only person who does this!!!)

....that for so many years I hadn't put so much emphasis on my house and how it much so that it kept me from inviting friends over.

....that we hadn't let money be a factor in whether we had more children.

....that I knew what my Dad wanted to talk to me about a couple of days before his death.

....that I hadn't let opportunities to share the Lord with others pass me by.

....that I hadn't worried so about money over the years....once I realized that God always comes thru....not "just in the nick of time"....but in HIS time!!!!

Yeah....this list could go on and on.

....if we're gonna look back....then, we need to use our past as a learning help somebody else along the way!!

Philippians 3:13b (NLT)
.......I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.

Blessings to you!!!

In His Most Precious Love....
....and with mine!!!
