Something amazing and touching started happening in my life since Father’s Day last Sunday (June 15, 2014). It was the day before my dad’s birthday. Usually, his birthday would be the same day as Fathers’ Day. That’s how special my dad is. Okay, I’ll stop telling too much sweet words about my Dad. I’m not used to it anymore, but I love him so much.
We weren’t able to celebrate Fathers’ Day the way we celebrate it before, but the Ushering Ministry where my parents are a part of did the celebration by eating the food that Mom prepared for everyone. It made me feel a bit sad because I was guessing that Dad might be disappointed that his birthday or Daddy day wasn’t celebrated by the family. It made me think of what to do for him on his birthday. Oh, well. I simply bought a Knorr soup for him to cook because it reminds me a lot of my childhood with him.
That wasn’t the only thing that amazed me during those days (June 15 and 16). During the 3 P.M. Sunday service, there was this boy who sat with his mom in one chair beside me because there was only one free seat, making them share for that seat (don’t worry, I was also a bit confused about how I exaggerated the usage of the word “seat” in that sentence). I didn’t know why but I had this urge to give him my seat (and another one here). By the way, before they sat beside me, the little kid was poking my button pins on my bag (BMO and Jake the Dog pins). I had an idea, “Why not give this to the kid later after the service?” The service went on, and I gave the boy my seat for him to be able to sit well because sharing a seat with his mom may be uncomfortable. I stood up near the tech booth beside my Dad. Hearing Dad laugh at every joke that the speaker says at the stage made my heart glad; it also made him pat me at the back, and kiss my scalp.. did that sound okay? Let me rephrase it.. He kissed my head.. Top of my head. Haha.
Before the service ended, we prayed for the daddies in the church, and went on. I approached the kid and his Mom right away to hand him my BMO button pin, “Hello~ Would you like to keep this? This will be yours now.” His Mom smiled, and looked at her son, pointing at the pin I was holding. I wasn’t able to understand what she was saying to her son, then the kid accepted the pin I gave him. He was so cute~ He seemed to be so shy while he took it from my hand. When they walked past me, I almost cried. I was so happy and overjoyed. Truly, God’s overflowing grace and love can be evident in a person. That’s one testimony to prove that.
