Sans regret

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball. An unexpected event that will have a huge impact on daily living. I have recently been presented with a challenge that is causing me a certain amount of anxiety, bewilderment, confusion, and denial. In my mind, one of my favorite quotes from Arrested Development keeps rolling around, "I have made a huge mistake!" How am I going to deal with this? I am in the process of coming to terms with this recent change in our life.

No regrets. What does it mean to live a life with no regrets? Does it mean that we should never question the things that we say and do? Or rather, do we accept the choices we have made and take responsibility for them regardless of the outcome? I not sure, but this scripture came to mind as I was thinking about it. It is from Ephesians,

“I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called."
I think living a life with no regrets involves us caring for and loving each other, first in our homes, then in our communities, and throughout the world.
