THE SHEPHERD’S CORNER

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17THE SHEPHERD’S CORNER

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17

Motherhood is one of the good and perfect gifts from God. If you ask me, what the most rewarding work I have done in my entire life, the answer is not “teaching piano” but rather “being a mom.” My children once asked me, why I did not pursue a Master’s degree. I told them that having a Mrs.’ degree was already sufficient for me.

God has blessed me with three special gifts—Praise, Eben, and Melody—and He has graciously made it possible for me to be a full-time MOM. Not only do I enjoy doing things for them, I also enjoy “discovering” them—getting to know them—by spending time with them. And, above all I consider it my greatest privilege to sing and pray for them when they are sick.

I learned to be a mother from my mom. She is always quick to respond to needs. I remember Mama used her hands a lot while raising my brothers and me. She cooked, washed dishes, sewed clothes, and she even cut my hair! When I did not feel well, she would cook porridge for me. For all that she has done, I am eternally grateful to God for giving her to me as my mom.

There is one more thing that she did and continues to do: She always prays for me. Without her prayers, I will not be who I am and definitely, where I am, today. Thank you, Mama. May you have a blessed Mother’s Day! You are truly blessed by the Lord. And, to all the mothers, I would like to wish you a happy Mother’s Day!
