Should- Five Minute Friday on Sunday

Another busy weekend, but the thoughts have been simmering since I read this week's prompt on Friday. This is what I came up with for this week.


Shoulda, woulda, coulda

Should've done this before that

They always ask what we would do different next time

Part of that reflection on professional practice, you know

Yes, hind sight is always twenty twenty

How many times have I realized too late 

one thing would've been better than another

Or I should've never said that and now it's too late

I can't undo or unsay anything

What's done is done and said is said

Yet on a more encouraging note

Something from a song I heard yesterday

"Never would've made it without you,"

Except, I would change it slightly

"Never should've made it."

If I look back on my life

I know without God's grace,

I never would've made it thus far

Man's standards and stats say,

I should not have

Only God's grace keeps us and gets us through


I Corinthians 15:10 "But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain;" (NASB)

  1. It's always easier to see things after the fact, rather than as they're playing out in front of us. Grace is always a good posture both towards others and towards ourselves. Hope you have a wonderful week!
