There were times I put all my eggs in one basket. There were times I counted my chickens before they hatched. There were even times I said, "Never!" There were also times I ignored the red flags, and times when I burned a bridge or two. There were times when I allowed myself to be a sheep, led to the slaughter. There were times I didn't listen to Ma or Dad. There were so many times I refused my own heart.
In all these times, you'd think I'd be ruled by regret, but I'm not. I think about the paths that all my mucked up choices took me down. Then, I look at the blessing I am today, along with the blessings I've gained along the way, and I'm grateful. Along those shoddy roads, God still favored me enough to give me my children, Taylor and Davyd. He still favors me enough that these here diabetes has not had any ill effect on my organs or nerves. He even favored me enough to give back to me, a Love I walked away from over 22 years ago. With that Love came two more monkeys, T2 and Mattie, whom I love as my very own. I've been blessed, even though my choices weren't always the best. The family I have and the friends I've gathered along the way, are tremendous blessings that only God could have given.
Although there were times, my actions were beneath me, God remained above me! Although my decisions often led to loss, God remained on and in all accounts. There were times when doubt was my pimp, but God was always near to snatch me off that corner, like Richard Gere. I love God! I love everything about Him! God is the ONLY true constant in this universe. The rest of us are flighty, fleeting, and fickle. I recognize all the areas where God stood and stands in my life, and I give Him His due. Every day, I exist, simply because He allows life to fill my body. I LOVE HIM!
