I thank you all for taking the time to think about this question. It sounds as if I have some latitude in the wording. I am planning a Men's Retreat about this subject and wanted to communicate clearly the goal we imperfect human beings (by the grace of God) can strive for.

Depends on your intent, but in terms of proper English, "large" is probably more correct. Large shows relativity to other similar entities, in your example, regrets. By saying you have no large regrets, you are implying the potential existence of non-large regrets. "Big" is usually used as a relative term to other entities. While it also may be correct, it is more vague. Example: I saw a big elephant vs. I saw a large elephant. For "big", most people imagine any adult elephant. For "large", most people imagine an adult elephant that is bigger than most other elephants.

Either one. You may have small or tiny ones instead and they are no problem for you. It is the big ones. Or the ones too large to contain within that bother people. If you were to say that to me I would go with you either way because I see a human behind those eyes not a machine that has to be so perfect that it uses the correct English for it. I would understand you because you are a human being not a robot. And I am not a professor with some sort of need to hear everything correctly.
