No regrets…

He Treats Me to a Feast; Notes from my Abundant Life

No regrets…

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
  ~Psalms 90:12

Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not how much time do we have. The question is what we shall do with it. 
~Anna Robertson Brow

Get it done.  No regrets.  Get it done.  Whatever it is, just finish it.  Around 4 am this morning, the smoke detector failed, or at least notified us that the battery or something needed replacement.  My husband got up, removed it, and went to look for batteries.  When none could be located, we got dressed, around 6, and went to purchase replacements.  If certain things are not attended to immediately, they may not get done.

“I’m going to work out.” I formulate the thought.  However, if I don’t get up and start working out, I likely will postpone my workout for another day.  Don’t articulate something and then get distracted, regrets stink.  Just get it done.

“I should clean the house.” Maybe I start, but then I get distracted by something or another, and….
Today I’m just getting it done. As it turns out, we didn’t need a new battery, we need a new smoke detector.  I’m headed to Home Depot.  We also need to change the filter on the HVAC unit (All hail, central air…) that’s on my list too.  And it’s not too late to pick up the pool passes, because we’re in for another heat wave. And, in full disclosure, I should’ve written this yesterday, because today is Tuesday, not Monday.  Next week-get it done, on time.

He teaches us, though we often fail to heed, to number our days so they may not be wasted.  They should not be filled with busyness, but should be filled purposely, and chock full of Praise.

Thank You, Lord, for ensuring I finally get the lesson.  Get it done.  No regrets.  Get it done.  Whatever it is, just finish it.   And when I not too well appreciated 4:00 am wake up can be viewed as a Word from the Lord, I have further evidence that God is Good.
