No regrets

“…To enjoy your work and to accept your lot in life—that is indeed a gift from God. The person who does that will not need to look back with sorrow on his past, for God gives him joy.” (TLB)



When I reach the end of time on earth I’d like to look back without regret. I’d like to maximize each life stage for the Lord.


When one accepts his lot in life

And in his work finds happiness,

His days will then be occupied

With a heart chocked full of gladness.


It is indeed a blessing,

To contentedly spend one’s days,

Free from second guessing

And no regrets from yesterday.
