In The Looking Back

In the looking back
there is much regret

Over things I’ve done
upon my heart set

But that’s the same
for just about anyone

Every mother or daughter
any father or son

But I also see
the challenges I’ve met

When it was against
me everyone had bet

Because we all do
learn along the way

When living in regret
ourself we do betray

And that is why
God gave us grace

For all our regrets
His forgiveness does replace!

    1. Thanks ever so much! I wasn’t sure about the picture at first but the more I looked at it the better I liked it with this poem. Peace and blessings, Terri

    1. Chuck, Thank you the your kind words! I too had the same thought about that key, lol!! I guess great minds think alike, huh? Kidding aside, I wish more people could understand and accept the grace that God offers to us all. Having been the receipient of massive amounts, I found that accepting His forgiveness was a bit easier than forgiving myself – that took me a lot longer to do 😦 But I did accomplish it eventually and I don’t allow the enemy to heap recimination on me anymore either 🙂 Peace, love and blessings, Terri
