Errors upon errors and the consequence thereof
Brings to mind days waking up early morning during school days, such as memories of junior high school where we would have weekly tests based on that chapter of learning during the week. I didn’t favour those weekly tests because if you failed on some of the questions, one was given the chance to go back and do the corrections. Not that it changed the initial mark record. I’m guessing it was a way of making sure you get to fully understand what has been taught and hopefully gain some sort of knowledge through those exercises.
To Err is human.
The remainder of the line, “to forgive divine.” But I don’t want to dwell on that part of forgiveness just yet. We all have made mistakes in this life that has probably brought upon us great loss, sadness, along with much regret. One thing is sure, It is not often that life offers the opportunity to make corrections, go back and do it differently. Although I am a true believer in correcting mistakes where one recognises and acknowledges their errors, and where one has erred, one must make amends.
Many times we have faced situations that have left us to deal with unwelcome consequences that could result in major losses and changing our lives forever leaving us drowning in a pool of regret.
Sometimes we make choices at moments thinking the best of the outcome yet only aids in future difficulties causing much chaos not only to oneself but to those around moreso loved ones. Still, we have done things and made choices that cause much grief and confusion. As a result, we gain a loss of appetite, many sleepless nights, wild and crazy thoughts fill the mind, and it has been known that in such situations we could then commit desperate acts in those desperate circumstances only to end up burning on a hot seat to now face unsavoury consequences.
There are times we not aware we are creating errors, there are times we commit errors in the hope no one will get hurt, or maybe we can find a resolution before dire penalties become the result. There are times we try to rectify these errors but only seem to dive deeper into a mass of confusion and create an even worse and unbearable situation. The pain and shame as a result of any unfortunate actions or words expressed.
We learn we grow, we hope, and we pray for the strength to know better and to be able to do better.
