Music to Set the Day

Music helps set the mood of the day.

I learned this as a child. I learned it from my late mother’s habit of playing music on the stereo very early in the morning or as soon as she wakes up.

Somehow the songs ushered in calmness, peace, hope.

Mother would play worship songs for hours until she leaves for the office. During weekends, the songs would continue to fill the air until breakfast time.

I borrowed that habit of hers when I left home for university. Her habit has especially helped me during my lonely and challenging times when I lived by myself in Cebu for several years. This was also true during my 3 years of living in Thailand, far away from family and from any close friend.

I can still remember today how lonely some days could be while living in a foreign land. You do not just miss family and friends but there are days when you miss the sight, the sound and even the scent of your own country.

Ah, but I survived that 🙂

Today, my mother’s habit is still a blessing to me. And my husband also shares that habit. I wake up in the morning and I hear worship songs fill the air of our home.

I am grateful for my late mother’s and my husband’s habit. And I am truly thankful for the gift of music and to the Ultimate Creator of all music.
