A Happy Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day. As Mae and I made our way to church, we decided that since Baby has started to respond to sounds and music, we would go into the main sanctuary of the church building. Here, Baby would get a feel of our worship in its full glory.

DUMC is as charismatic as a church gets. Our worship today is backed by 7-piece band, 5 backup singers and a very able worship leader. The songs are upbeat and lively and we expected Baby to kick a little but the little guy must have not been particularly impressed.

Anyway, the proceedings continued. Today's speaker, Pastor Clarine Chun gave a wonderful sermon on motherhood. She shared with us personal letters from her children and it was all very moving. Finally, she ended the day by inviting a talented young man up on stage to give a musical tribute to all the mothers in DUMC.

As the young man played the keyboard and sang a beautiful song for the mothers, suddenly Mae grabbed my arm. "Honey, Baby's kicking now!!" It was as though Baby decided to wish mommy a Happy Mother's Day. It was probably just a coincidence, but it sure made our day!

Clever little guy. Something tells me we're gonna spoil him rotten someday.


  1. Were you at the second celebration? So was I... and Messy Christian... and Bob K. Muahahahah!

  2. Oh man, Irene!!! I wished I had spotted you guys. But then again, I've never met anyone of you, except maybe Bob. But that was only once and I probably would have had difficulty recognising him! Oh well...

  3. probably he is gonna be a pastor, j never know :)

  4. I'm sure I did, Bob. If your Elaine is the same one who did those great costumes for Peace Child. :)
