Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Genesis 1:26

Twice a year, our daughters’ school hosts a concert and this week they had the spring concert. I know the class practiced for this wonderful event and the rest of the other campuses prepared well for this wonderful event.

The auditorium was full and Hye Mi and I sat up as front as we could. There were about three rows of students in front of us. Once the concert started, we paid attention to the performance. The students were all good and I can see how well they prepared. But the best performance was yet to come. 

Halfway through the concert, it was finally our daughters’ class’s turn to perform. I got my phone ready to start recording. The students lined up, started playing their ukelele, and sang the song “Kanaka Waiwai.” It was the best performance of the night. My girls sang the loudest, and they were the most beautiful-looking students in the entire school.

You can see that I am being very subjective. Did our kids’ class perform the best? Objectively not. Were my girls’ voices the most beautiful and best looking? Objectively not. They are my kids, and to me, that’s all I cared about all night. Every little movement they made caught my attention and to me, they were the best. Because they are MY kids.

I would like to think that that’s how God thinks of us. We are created in His image, and we are His loving children. I am thankful for a Father who watches over us and cares for us no matter what.
