I've been doing a lot of pondering lately, mainly being questions that begin with a "What if..." Questions I ask myself "If I had done something differently would my life be altered drastically now?" I guess it is some meloncholy coming out into a state of regret. Is having regrets a bad thing? I'm sure we all have them sooner or later, I guess I just thought that was something you don't get until you are old and looking back on your life. I am only 22 years old I didn't think I was old enough to have regrets...but I do. The problem with regrets are that no matter how regretful one may be it does not change the past. "If only" must be two of the saddest words in the world. I suppose I'll never know the answers to my "what if" questions; I'll never know how I would be living my life, "If only I had..." Alexander Graham Bell wisely said, "When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us." I also know that everything happens for a reason, already known by God. The hard times I may go through will either build character or will provide me with valuable life lessons. As a Christian I can rest assured that the Lord is in control of my life, both the good and the bad. I know that God can make straight the crooked paths and calm the seas of life. "Is there anything too hard for the Lord?" No there is not, whatever mistakes I have made, whatever regrets I may have, when it all boils down, God is still on the throne...
