Collage Friday– No Regrets, OCC, & Children’s Museum

What God has Been Teaching Me:

We heard an incredibly impactful testimony on Sunday at church by Robert Rogers.  He lost his wife and 4 children 9 years ago in a flash flood but realized that he had lived so that he has no regrets.  He now has a ministry to encourage others to live their lives so that they won’t have any regrets.  It has helped me more than other things I’ve tried to conquer my impatience and frustrations this week.  I shared last week how God was convicting me to live without being anxious (Phillipians 4:6).  As I continually thought of the fact that I don’t want certain “moments” to be the last that my kids remember of me, I’ve had more patience and self-control.  Please see Robert Roger’s website called Into the Deep.  Oh, and the Lord has blessed him with a new wife and four more children!

Please take the time to watch this:


Where we went:

My mom is in town visiting, so we’ve taken the opportunity to go on some field trips to Kohl Children’s Museum and CA Robot Factory (and Wendy’s!).

What I’m reading:

  1. I can really relate to trying to living without being anxious. My struggle now is trying to let go of control, which is closely related to being anxious, too. Thank you for pointing me to this inspiring man’s website, too. I had never heard of him before.

    Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks for always linking, Gena!
