Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

Verse of the Day:
That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. – 2 Corinthians 12:10


Normally I would not share such a scandalous dorky silly picture of myself with the Internet world… however the WordPress Weekly Photo topic intrigued me. In this picture I am wearing my husband Ryan’s pajama pants. We were in a hotel room in Rochester, MN. We were goofing around and laughing… having a great time. It was the night before my open heart surgery in 2010. We were getting ready for bed and i wanted to make Ryan laugh! I put those pants on and pulled them up to my armpits and posed like an old man flexing… Ryan is 6’4″ and his pants are way to big! Mission Accomplished!

This is probably the most ridiculous picture I have ever shared publicly. I am sharing it because even though life gets really hard and we face things that we don’t even understand, we need to remember to take time to laugh… Ryan always makes me laugh… I got to return the favor! And I have No Regrets that he got a picture of it, or that I am sharing it with you! Hahaha!

  1. Obviously, you came through your surgery beautifully. Here’s to many more years (free of regret) for you and your husband. Great picture, by the way.

  2. I’m still amazed at how everyone is able to make me smile with their takes on regret, a topic I thought was going to be quite a dark one (my photo certainly was…) so thanks for putting a bit of cheer into my day. I am inspired by your ability to goof around like that the day before some pretty seriosu surgery!

    1. Paul, your photo is haunting… And also beautifully done. It makes me want to know why you are hurting so much. The pic provokes feelings of empathy in me…I want to sit next to you and just be there and listen or pray with you or just pray for you… Great job on your first Weekly Photo Challenge!

  3. You said theis line so beautifully, ” I am sharing it because even though life gets really hard and we face things that we don’t even understand, we need to remember to take time to laugh”. I will remember this statement forever. Great post with a really nice picture. Best wishes to you. 🙂

  4. God has sustained you and kept you safe even during the time you underwent the surgery just so to inspire others. I’m blessed to have read this post. God bless you.

I love feedback! Please let me know what you think.
