God’s Little Miracle TO Share..

Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare for a new sibling. They found out that the new baby was going to be a girl, and day after day, night after night, Michael sang to his sister in mommy’s tummy. He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even met her.

The pregnancy progressed normally for Karen, an active member of the Panther Creek United Methodist Church in Morris town , Tennessee. In time, the labor pains came. Soon it was every five minutes, every three, every minute. But serious complications arose during delivery and Karen found herself in hours of labor. Would a C-section be required? Finally, after a long struggle, Michael’s little sister was born. But she was in very serious condition. With a siren howling in the night, the ambulance rushed the infant to the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital, Knoxville , Tennessee.

The days inched by. The little girl got worse. The pediatrician had to tell the parents there is very little hope. Be prepared for the worst. Karen and her husband contacted a local cemetery about a burial plot. They had fixed up a special room in their house for their new baby but now they found themselves having to plan for a funeral. Michael however, kept begging his parents to let him see his sister. I want to sing to her, he kept saying. Week two in intensive care looked as if a funeral would come before the week was over.

Michael kept nagging about singing to his sister, but kids are never allowed in Intensive Care. Karen decided to take Michael whether they liked it or not. If he didn’t see his sister right then, he may never see her alive. She dressed him in an over-sized scrub suit and marched him into ICU. He looked like a walking laundry basket. The head nurse recognized him as a child and bellowed, ‘Get that kid out of here now. No children are allowed!’

The mother rose up strong in Karen, and the usually mild-mannered lady glared steel-eyed right into the head nurse’s face, her lips a firm line. ‘He is not leaving until he sings to his sister’ she stated. Then Karen towed Michael to his sister’s bedside. He gazed at the tiny infant losing the battle to live. After a moment, he began to sing.

In the pure-hearted voice of a 3-year-old, Michael sang: ‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray.’ Instantly the baby girl seemed to respond. The pulse rate began to calm down and become steady.

‘Keep on singing, Michael,’ encouraged Karen with tears in her eyes. ‘You never know, dear, how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away.’ As Michael sang to his sister, the baby’s ragged, strained breathing became as smooth as a kitten’s purr. ‘Keep on singing, sweetheart.’

‘The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my arms’ Michael’s little sister began to relax and rest, healing rest, seemed to sweep over her. ‘Keep on singing, Michael.’

Tears had now conquered the face of the bossy head nurse. Karen glowed.

‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. Please don’t take my sunshine away.’

The next day…the very next day, the little girl was well enough to go home. Woman’s Day Magazine called it The Miracle of a Brother’s Song. The medical staff just called it a miracle. Karen called it a miracle of God’s love. NEVER GIVE UP ON THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE. LOVE IS SO INCREDIBLY POWERFUL.

May you be truly blessed this day!



God Remembers Our Life-Time Dreams..

A couple of weeks ago, my mother-in-law invited me to attend her church’s Women luncheon meeting. I accepted her invitation and went to the meeting with her.  At the meeting, I was nervous because I only knew a couple of the ladies at the church. Yet, at that meeting, God spoke to my heart through a testimony of a young lady and her mother’s.  At the end of the meeting, I was sure glad I was there.

The sharing of their testimonies began with the young lady who was on a wheel chair. Well, you might be thinking what happened? This young pretty lady was paralyzed due to a tragic automobile accident. The story began way before the tragic accident.  She shared that she had been a good girl, raised in a christian family and would go to church with the family with no questions asked, sundays after sundays for years. Besides going to church, she spent most part of her years in gymnastic trainings.  As you can see that gymnastics is her one passion in life.  Later, she went on to share one tragic news with us. Her gymnastic coach whom she had been trained under for several years, died from a cancer.  The tragic news blew her mind away.  She was in shock..  It caused her to have doubts about the God she thought she knew at that time.  She blamed God for taking her coach away from her.  She started mixing around with a bunch of friends she should not have.  Doing things that she knew were wrong and harmful to her. Yet, she held on to that attitude that she did not care.  She went on to share with us about that one time when God seemed to speak to her through a testimony of another friend in church about putting Him first in life,  she responded to God saying that she would never give gymnastics up for Him.  All these happened prior to the accident that led her to a final confrontation with God.

Sometimes we think we can carry on with our lives, ignoring God, and get away with it.  I think God loves us too much to let that happen to us and be satisfied that its the best for us.  God knows much more than we do and He longs for us to have a good relationship with Him.  The incident of that tragic accident happened because she wanted to hang around with her group of friends despite her mother’s repeated instructions to stay with her given tasks as her parents were away that weekend.  She kept on pleading with her mom to let her go.  Finally, her mother relented with instructions for her daughter to call and report of  her where about intermittently.  The greatest fear that her mother had came through when the parents received a call from the police of her daughter’s automobile accident.

Good News Amidst The Tragedy

It was during the moment when the young lady was trapped in the car that she started talking to God again. It was during the most difficult moment of her life that she felt the presence and the peace of God in her life.  How ironic and how true it is! It is often in our desperation, that we finally choose to listen. It was on that day, the young lady found peace with God. During the time of her rehabilitation,  she finally learned to put God first in all things.  After a year, she is still adjusting to the new change in her life.  She is dependent on her wheel chair now and for a period of time, she thought that she would never get back to gymnastics ever again. God put her in a great organization, Break The Barrier, that helps disabled children and young people through gymnastics to have a good quality of  life. You see, God has not forgotten her dream.. In order to pursue God, God does not absolutely require that we give up our dreams for Him.  It’s our hearts that matter to Him.  If that dream is turned around and given to Him, then it would not be an object of competition, would it? He would give us anything that is good, not harmful.  The most beautiful part of this testimony is watching her performing in her wheel chair,  in a dance with a group of young ladies of her age.

As her mother shared her side of the story, we came to understand her struggles with God and her fear. One of the questions that she had to come to term with was this: ” Why would a loving God knowing that a girl’s dream depends on her feet, would take her feet away from her? ” You know, in her mother’s testimony, she shared that all she prayed and asked God for was a physical healing for her daughter. In the end, she understood why God allowed it. Her mother was looking at her daughter’s physical healing, but God was more interested in her daughter’s spiritual healing.  Isn’t it amazing? After the accident, this family has been receiving blessings after blessings from people who are willing to help.  They recognize the hands of God upon it all.  The house has to be refurnished to accommodate the wheel chair and they are almost done with the refurnishing except the bathroom.  Even so, they found an organization willing to remodel the bathroom for them at a low price.

One thing I learned from the testimonies, was that: ” when God brings us to Him, it is because He loves us and we are important to Him. ” Sometimes, we think God is punishing us.. on the contrary, it is Him getting our attention. Simply because we are heading the wrong direction. One precious thought that keeps dwelling in me since then is that no matter what we do or had done, God keeps in His mind our spoken dreams and He has not forgotten them. What a comfort to know and be reminded of that! No matter what, God remembers our life-time dreams dear friends. He has not forgotten! If only we would turn our dreams around and give them to God, He would honor our acts of faith! Lets just say: ” What God would do with it, so be it! ” And watch Him works. May you be truly blessed this day.



The Uniqueness Of God Through The Eye Of A Sunflower.

You may ask: Why do you choose to talk about a sunflower? What’s so special about it? It is just a flower after all..

Well, first of all, I love sunflowers. It is one of my favorites, beside yellow roses, daffodils, freesias. As you can now see that I love flowers. Naturally, I begin my blogs with a flower. Now, a sunflower is not just an ordinary flower, it is a favorite for many women around the world.  Imagine, you have a vase of sunflowers on your dinning table, and it immediately draws the attention of everyone in the room. And the topic will naturally change as the focus begins to fall on the flowers. It brings a smile to a person’s face each time, he or she sees a sunflower. It is bright and cheery. So, today I would like to draw your attention to this unique flower called the  SUNFLOWER.

Let me share with you about some interesting facts on this flower:

Please refer to this link below if you have further interest on the facts about these sunflowers:


  • More than sixty different varieties of sunflowers can be found in the world. Out of all these, the most common one is bright yellow, with dark brown centers filled with seeds.
  • A sunflower head is made up of 1,000 to 2,000 individual flowers that are joined together to a base. The large petals that are found around the edge of a sunflower are individual ray flowers, these do not develop into seeds.
  • A single sunflower can have up to 2000 seeds.  A distinguishing quality of the sunflower is that its flowering head tracks the sun’s movement. This occurrence is known as “heliotropism.”

In august 2009, I took an interest in growing some sunflowers myself and I was totally in awe and amazed by this beautiful flowers. As usual, I took lots of pictures of my sunflowers. Some of the facts mentioned above, are what I noticed last year when I planted my sunflowers. A flower with about 1,000 to 2,000 individual flowers that are joined together to a base? It is amazing.. Although, I planted the smaller kind called the Evening Sun, I was amazed by the many tiny flowers that grew out of the base head of the sunflower.  It was an amazing sight to watch.  Out of a single sunflower, you can have up to 2000 seeds? Wow.. I can only tell you that I had a wonderful harvest of sunflower seeds last year. How amazing is that?  Science tells you that this flower evolved from Evolution.. out of nothingness creates this amazing flower? How can this even be possible? Through this unique flower, I see the uniqueness of God. He is interested in even the minute details of His creation. Have you ever notice how the colors of the sunflowers come together so beautifully and pleasant to the eyes? Can this once again be explained away by the intelligence of the human minds? Until you begin to plant and watch these flowers develop before your very eyes, you will never come to appreciate the beauty of the uniqueness of this special flower that through the very uniqueness of God, design this flower.

If you remember that another interesting fact about this flower is that it keeps track of the existence of the sun. It turns its head to the source of the sunlight. Even the sunflower recognizes the source of life which is the sun itself. The flower looks for a source much greater than itself. Can we acknowledge the existence of God, the life-giver and creator of all things, great and small? Today, I would like to share a Bible truth with you. The Bible says in Matthew 6:28 – 34

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? “

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. “

This is a great news for those who believe in what He said in the Bible. Does God care about you? Yes, He does! If He took so much trouble to create flowers that bloom today and gone tomorrow, and care for them diligently, wouldn’t He who also created you, not care about you? Guess what? He has already provided a path that leads to life for you when He gave His one and only Son, Jesus Christ to die on the Cross for your sins and mine.  John 3:16 says:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

So, you ask: What sin have I done? I have not kill or hurt anyone ever before. I have seen men far more worse than me..  It is not just about the wrong you have done against people, but also against Him. Do you believe that God exist? And that He created you? Did you put your trust and faith in the pilot who flew your plane to the destination of your vacation more than Him? Did you trust your natural ability more than trusting Him? Did you trust your possessions more than giving your life to His control? If your answers are Yes, then you have not believe and put your trust in Him. Choose today whom would you give that control of your life to.. is it God or self or the devil? Jesus says today:

“I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father (God) except through me.” John 14:6

He who has the Son (Jesus) has life, he who does not have the Son of God has not life. May you be truly blessed this day!
