During our midweek service we usually have oppurtunity for people to share a testimony or a Bible Verse. This week one of our ladies shared a wonderful testimony about how thankful she was for all the important things in her life. She spoke about how her idea of what is important has changed since she had gotten older and had certain experiences in her life. It got me thinking about some of the "important things" that I'm dealing with right now. There is definitely no shortage of "things" that need to be accomplished on any given day. Things that seem so important right now will likely not even be remembered in the not so distant future.
It is very likely that what is "important" to us will in fact change throughout our life. We will likely all end up like our dear sister that shared her testimony. She was more thankful for the people rather than the things. Barbara Bush once said, “At the end of your life you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent.”
How true that is. Sometimes the "important things" end up being the forgotten things and the unnoticed people and things end up being the most regretted things that we've missed out on. However, it doesn't have to be that way. Instead of regrets we can have memories.
