Today at church was so humbling to me. It had been a while since I went to church because of winter weather. With me having unsteadiness, snow and ice scare me. It felt good to be back among positive people.

I am so glad I went because there was a guest speaker and he was awesome! He is from Cambodia. His name is, Chhinho Saing. He has a beautiful family also. He spoke of his world from growing up to what he does today.

It touched my heart when he said he cried and cried every day because his mother was killed. He spoke about the Killing Fields and how it affected his  life. Have you ever seen this movie? I placed the Trailer of the movie below. Also, here is a family photo of him and his family.

He made me realize how spoiled and ungrateful I am at times. I have a roof over my head. I have freedom to make my own choices. I can choose what foods I like. The more he spoke, the more I thanked God for my gifts.

Chhinho is building churches in Cambodia. He is a believer of God and realizes God’s importance in our lives. He is also a blogger here at WordPress. If you would like to follow him, here is his blog address. I am so grateful for what I have and thankful that I have the sense to realize I have much to yet learn in my life.

Daily Prompt/One Word Prompt


https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/thwart/

prevent (someone) from accomplishing something.

 

When you were a kid, I bet you had plenty of ideas swimming around in your head.  How many of those ideas became reality? Did you have the kind of parents who let you explore your passions or were your parents the ones who said no more then they said yes.

Now that you are all grown-up, do you ever ponder on their reasoning? I have heard both sides of the coin from parents. Different reasons I heard were, we didn’t have the money. It is just a foolish idea. Yes, I was open to what my child was interested in. How would we feel if we were part of the reason our kids didn’t achieve their dreams?

Do you resent your parents for saying yes or no today? Do you think where you are now is partly responsible for the answers they gave? Let me know your thoughts.
