Back to the Future-The Single Woman’s Blogging Challenge Day 24

 If you could relive ONE day of your life, what would it be? And would you change anything?

If you could relive ONE day of your life, what would it be? And would you change anything?
I went from trying to complete the blogging challenge in a month to the end of 2014 to the first quarter of 2015 to…well I think I’ve learned that this challenge is meant to take FOREVER!!

As for reliving a day in my life–I am struggling to think of something I would want to do again. You couldn’t pay me enough to relive high school so that’s out. Something about the innocence of my elementary school years is appealing but I think I would want to keep my sepia toned memories of swings and sandboxes in the past. College….well, it was the best of times and the worst of times so I believe I will leave the laughs and lessons where they are as well. Even my more recent years of health and courage and wins in life aren’t enough to waste such a huge opportunity.

There’s just too much ahead to think about going back. I want to fast forward to my birthday and then live the whole weekend’s celebrations in slow motion so that I can savor every moment. I can’t wait to be surrounded by friends and family. I want to pause at the first realization that I want to spend the rest of my life with a special someone and smile the widest I have ever smiled. I want to feel my heart stop when he asks me to be his wife and I say yes! I want to feel the honor of being pregnant and praise God over and over again when I hear that first laugh, coo, and sigh of my babies. I want the joy of working in ministry and seeing my calling come to life. I want the moment of knowing my legacy is greater than my current works. I long to hear “Well Done” at the end of my days and to be welcomed into glory.

My best days are ahead of me. I don’t regret a moment of my past but the future, the sunrises and new beginnings ahead, they are so much sweeter.
