Blessed day everyone! I just wanted to share and thank my daughter, Camille for saving me yesterday when I sang the song “Blessings” by Laura Story at our Church service. I was privileged to share that song because it was so perfect for what was going on around us lately. Towards the end of the 1st verse, the music stopped! According to our sound guy (John), the computer just froze! As I was trained, we need to keep singing as if nothing happened. We need to not react, and not let the audience know that there was an issue or a mistake or anything like that. More so, I told myself that the song is too good to not finish it. So, I kept singing the chorus, then the next verse, focusing on the song and hoping to give justice to the message no matter what. Though, in the back of my mind I was hoping that John would not hit “play” again because then I wouldn’t know where I’m at on the song. Suddenly, I heard the music playing and I got a little worried! Behind me was a voice helping me to start the 2nd chorus. That was my daughter Camille. I knew she went on the left side of the stage to help me get back on the music, but I thought to myself (while still singing with confidence)… oh crap! John hit “play!” Now I can sing from nowhere. But I sang the chorus anyways as my daughter had led me and thought…ok whatever…let’s see what happens. As I was singing, it felt right. I got kinda lost after the bridge coz it sounded different. I was so focused on the song but the other side of me is saying…” I’m lost and must have sang a wrong part.” I tried to sing with confidence, I paused and waited for the chorus, then I found my way to towards the end of the song. The ending sounded different from what I have rehearsed and I thought, “oh, I sent John a different version from my iPad.
I sat down after the song calmly. Sister Medick (our Pastor’s wife) smiled and motioned, “thanks to Camille who played the piano. I WAS SHOCKED and could not believe it in pure honesty! I didn’t hear the difference except for the outro. She managed to find the song chords on her phone when the music stopped and ran to her keyboard to save her MOM. The tone, the key, and the way she played it was perfect in my ear. I AM SOOO PROUD AND GRATEFUL that she did it. She is awesome! I still couldn’t believe it but all I can say in my heart was…THANK YOU LORD for having her, who found her way to save me and with the same goal, to render a beautiful music.
Our kids are PRECIOUS GIFTS from heaven. I’m getting older and my kids are growing maturely. We constantly need them whether we accept it or not. They will be our guide and sometimes (or most of the time), they are even smarter than us. Aren’t we all proud of our children? They make us whole and they make us complete. I wouldn’t trade anything for my precious kids.
ALL GLORY BELONGS TO GOD!
