Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Regrets – Paradoxes. “We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it”. Alcoholics Anonymous is where miracles happen and promises come true. My regrets for the things I did have been tempered by time. By our Father’s grace my major defects have been transformed into workable assets. Regrets are paradoxes; what I did was wrong, harmful, yet those transformed defects give my life meaning. Would I have found my loving relationship with our Father, His Love, and His will for me, otherwise? My life has a purpose, real meaning because of my transformed defects. What about my regrets for the things I have not done? I choose to work on things left undone now. I cannot do anything to change the decisions I made in my past, but I can choose once again. My future, today, holds many opportunities to make a tiny good difference. Let there be no “if only’s” or no “if and buts were candy and nuts I would have fulfilled life”. My heart’s desire has opened my eyes to see our father’s Presence, Love and the ears to here is Holy Voice within the invisible silence. “Come; love one another as I have loved you.” Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
