When a friend jokingly teased me with something like this," what lah you and what kind of Christian are you?' when I told him that I hardly go to the church on Sunday.........I just took that teasing as a pinch of salt lah......
Indeed I am a Christian and I love God too but then again as I am still on earth and as I am still a son to a mother, I think the onus is on me is to be a 'real son" and I know that there is just a little thing that I could do just to be a "real son" and when I say "just a little thing' I really mean it.
I know my mom would be happy when on Sunday mornings if I would to take her to her "old kampung" for breakfast, for there she would meet a lot of her old friends, for there she would love to buy stuff from her usual vendors when all these vendors would greet my mom and sometimes praise her like this," wa ! auntie, you still look strong for your age lah"
And I know she would be happy when she would "show case' me to her friends and when her friends respond 'You are so "ho mia lah" your son is so filial " then I would look at her face, she would have this smile of "contentment"
You see my mom is not a Christian yet and I can't tell her that I cannot take her for breakfast on Sunday because I need to go to Church.
Sure,I can take her for lunches and dinners but we will never understand how old folks would feel when you take them back to their "old kampung" and Sunday morning breakfast at her "old kampung" rightly or wrongly can be her contentment.
I do spend my time talking to My Lord in the early hours of the mornings and I am sure he understands me more than anyone else......
P/S : In her living years,,, do what I can
