Sending My Regrets

I am not sorry that I slept really hard last night and didn't hear the Mr. get up for work. I am also not sorry that I slept until almost 8:00. This wasn't my plan but I'm not sorry. Rest is not a luxury to apologize for.
I'm not sorry I took the day off work. I hope everything is going well there because my co-workers are my friends and I'd never want them to have a hard day because of me. Because they are my friends, I know they understand that this day is not a vacation day. Being with your family when they need you is not a luxury to apologize for.
I'm not sorry I had french fries with dinner last night. They tasted good and filled my stomach and yes, I am a comfort eater. They comforted me. Finding small comfort when you're anxious is not a luxury to apologize for.
There is much I'd regret about my life if not for the Lord reassuring me that keeping myself squarely in his hand, if not always his will, releases me from regret. God is a good and loving God who wants us to rest and be comforted and feel assured.
Today, do not let the enemy of your soul speak regret. The only regret is a life not lived for God. It's a regret easily mended.

1 Samuel 12:24 But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.

I so regret you having fries without my son Nathan ;) pass the ketchup.

Glad you're in "no regret" land and resting in Gods hand.

Have a blessed time tomorrow with your family ... fill up on turkey so you don't "comfort eat" too much pumpkin pie ;)

Rest assured your friends will fill in the gap, just as you would do for them. I think eating those french fries were a VERY good thing!
I love you, am glad you are at peace.

"There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" ... and no reason to be sorry for anything you've done. God sends comfort in varying ways and He knows what is best for each of us. I am very thankful you were able to sleep in this morning and that you have the day off 'work' ... you have more important things to tend to this day.
Bless you. You are loved and thought of often.

Been catching up on my reading, but the prayers for your grandma and family have been and will be consistent.
